97. 1 AMP Radio’s 6th Annual We Can Survive Concert was held at the Hollywood Bowl on Oct. 20. The concert was held to support and help raise awareness for young women who are diagnosed with breast cancer. At the concert, many artists attended such as Shawn Mendes, Marshmellow, Khalid, Charlie Puth, and much more.
All the artist that showed up teamed up to support the Young Survival Coalition (YSC), which is an organization that is dedicated to help support young women who are diagnosed with breast cancer. They raised funds for this organization. Throughout the event, people were having fun and showed their support for breast cancer by wearing pink T-shirts, pink feather boas and dying pink streaks into their hairs. The event became a place for women and men to gather around to celebrate life, survival, and remember those lost in the fight.
The Hollywood Bowl along with LA City Officials had the streets closed from 5 pm to 10 pm since the concert began at 6:30 pm. Once the streets opened up, there was a traffic jam. The traffic began from around Sunset and Highland and continued until reaching the Hollywood Bowl. The concert was beneficial and helpful to many people in different ways.
