Mitch Albom says
An evening of entertainment and storytelling to benefit S.A.Y. Detroit and the launch of his newest novel “The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto” at the Fox Theatre on Sunday, November 8 at 7 p.m. The event will be a mix of performances and conversations between Albom and a wildly impressive line-up of music-related guests including Sawyer Fredericks, Earl Klugh, Ted Nugent, Michael Bolton, JK Simmons (Oscar winner for "Whiplash") jazz guitar star John Pizzarelli, Phredley Brown (musical director for Bruno Mars), Roger McGuinn (founding member of the Byrds) and local musicians Olivia Millerschin and Vito Lafata, as well as others. (Lineup is subject to change.)

“The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto” is about a fictional guitar player who changes lives with his music, and to that end, Albom is organizing a celebration of music, guitars and Detroit, all to benefit needy Detroiters through the charities of S.A.Y. Detroit.

S.A.Y. Detroit, formed in February 2006, is a fully formed 501(c) (3) charity aimed at improving the lives of the neediest citizens, through shelter, food, medical care, volunteer efforts and education. It serves as the umbrella for ongoing major projects including A Time to Help, S.A.Y. Detroit Family Health Clinic, and Working Homes/Working Families, and funds dozens of projects for Detroit-area Agencies. To learn more about S.A.Y. Detroit, visit mitchalbomcharities.org.
