 Rebbie Jackson’s “Pick Up The Phone 2011 Tour” Kicks Off Tonight

Washington, DC- Rebbie Jackson of the famous Jackson family will headline a concert at the Duke Ellington Theater in Washington DC on Friday, Feb. 25, 2011. The event will also feature the R & B group, The Winstons, and 10 percent of the proceeds will benefit the Kristin Brooks Hope Center and Hope Line. It's part of the "Rebbie Jackson Pick Up The Phone 2011 Suicide Prevention Tour." "I will be performing some of my hold hits and a few Jackson songs," says Reebie. "I will be working with a band, singers and background dancers, and we're excited about performing."

The event will also include directors from the Hope Center and others providing vital information to help all who suffer from or know someone who suffer from Depression, BiPolar, Mental Illness, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Eating Disorders, ADHD, Schizophrenia, Autism, Alcohol and Substance Abuse. As well as those who know someone who has committed or attempted to commit suicide.

"Mental illness and bipolar disorder is very dear to me because my daughter is bipolar," says Reebie. "What we're trying to do is get people to see the stigma that persists with mental illness doesn't have to exist. There are medications if used with proper medical attention and family support, you can deal with it."

Proceeds from the concert will also go to benefit the Dance Institute of Washington DC, Ovarian Cancer National Alliance and Washington's Children's Hospital and Medical Center.
