Now her friends are rallying to pay for her medical bills in the wake of a massive heart attack on April 10, 2011. She had to undergo emergency open heart surgery, Shannon Durant wrote us in an e-mail on behalf of the event organizers.

John Conyers Jr., various P-Funkers, the Contours featuring Joe Billingslea, original Vandellas, Brainstorm, Carl Carlton, Syder Turner, Robert Lowe, Maruga, the Sun Messengers, Cash McCall, Lenny Lake and more.
