Benefit concert raises more than $1M for Minot
Black Eyed Peas benefit concert raises more than $1.3 million for flood-damaged Minot, ND
By The Associated Press

MINOT, N.D. (AP) ' Preliminary figures show a concert featuring The Black Eyed Peas as the headliner raised at least $1.3 million to help with flood recovery efforts in the North Dakota town of Minot.

Minot Area Community Foundation president Ken Kitzman said in a news release that Saturday night's initial count of 15,800 people in attendance at the benefit concert breaks a previous record set for a KISS concert in 2010.

Kitzman said concert officials are still adding up donations, but at least $1.3 million has been raised so far.



Hollywood actor and Minot native Josh Duhamel spoke at the concert, which also featured Minneapolis-based rockers Charlz Newman. Duhamel is married to Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie.
