The event, which grew 52 sims last year to 60 this year features Second Life’s most recognized live performer, Mankind Tracer, who is doing this for the 5th year now. During his long time performing in SL, Mankind Tracer has won many prestigious awards, performed countless charitable events for both large and more personal causes and he has released 3 SL CD’s which have seen tremendous success in SL.
PLB V will again be a Live Video Concert. The concert is planned to last for two straight hours. There will also be a live audio stream just in case residents don’t have the ability to see video. Mankind will stream his live show across SL via the new “Stage Screen”. Mankind will perform at an unspecified location in order to speak directly to attendees at the venues and take requests via IM.
ALS is a terrible disease that causes nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord that control movement stop functioning. The condition leads to paralysis, and patients eventually cannot breathe or swallow on their own.
The disease afflicts about 350,000 people a year worldwide, and about half of patients die within three years of diagnosis. Mankind hopes to raise awareness of this disease in addition to raising funds. In Mankind’s own word’s, “I wish you peace in your minds, love in your hearts and belief in the generosity and the goodness of the people that share the world with us.”
