Singer-songwriter Bridgette Perdue prepares to take locals on a trip down memory lane with free concert

(Pittsburgh, PA)—October 10, 2013- Pittsburgh based rising star and Pop/R&B Recording Artist Bridgette Perdue is gearing up to give locals a musical experience to remember. On Sunday, October 27th at 2pm, Perdue will perform the last of a 3-part concert series, Genres & Generations Vol. 3 at the Father Ryan Arts Center. The free concert is open to music lovers of all ages and features special performances by Anqwenique Wingfield and Hakim Rasheed. Guests are in for fun, food, and an incredible lineup of live music from multiple genres (past and present), including Pop, Jazz, Hip Hop as well as some of Perdue’s original songs.

Singing sensation Perdue is not only headlining the concert, but as recipient of The Pittsburgh Foundation’s Advancing Black Arts in Pittsburgh Grant, she is also event producer. “I wanted to produce this event in the community of Sto-Rox to help bridge the gap between the young and older generations and celebrate the richness of black music. I want guests (especially young people) to experience a live band and music from legends such as Etta James, Stevie Wonder, and Michael Jackson to present day ‘legends in the making’ like Alicia Keys” says, Bridgette Perdue.

The previous two concerts in the series (Generations and Genres Vol.1 and Vol.2) took place at the Homewood Carnegie Library and the Hill House Kaufman Center and were both a tremendous success.
