Free Celebration During Earth Hour at L.A. LIVE  with Singer/Songwriter Gina Rene and the Anthem "Be The Change"


CELEBRITIES, TV SHOWS, STUDENTS, MUSICIANS, BUSINESSES AND RESTAURANTS ALL TURNING OUT FOR EARTH HOUR L.A., MARCH 28TH
,  8:30- 9:30 p.m. worldwildlife.org.

Earth Hour L.A. will be celebrated with a free public event co-hosted by WWF and Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa at L.A. LIVE on March 28th beginning at 6 p.m. KEARTH 101 is a partner of Earth Hour L.A. and will be bringing all of the week's activities, as well as the evening of the 28th to listeners across Southern California.


Celebrities from TV, film, music and sports will turn out their lights as part of World Wildlife Fund’s Earth Hour L.A., billed as the first global vote for action on climate change. Kevin Bacon, Kyra Sedgwick, Isabella Rosellini, Los Angeles Kings, Alanis Morissette, Baron Davis, Big Kenny of Big & Rich, Edward James Olmos, Janeane Garofalo, and others will join millions of people around the world in raising awareness and prompting action on climate change.  By the time Earth Hour 2009 reaches L.A.’s city limits, it will have traveled through 20 time zones, with individuals, businesses and governments in more than 1,600 cities in 80 countries across the globe turning off non-essential lights in support.


Kevin Bacon, Kyra Sedgwick, Isabella Rossellini, Tom Bergeron, Alanis Morissette, Los Angeles Kings, and others have said they will turn out their lights during this event.

Local area students and musicians are part of the evening's entertainment line-up, including 12 young artists that make up the Life Drum Core from the HeArt Project. The Life Drum Core will perform an original percussion composition called 'A Funeral for Fossil Fuels' on buckets they have painted to align with the theme of the music. The group will also perform with local urban singer/songwriter Gina Rene who will be performing her song -- and official Earth L.A. anthem -- "Be the Change." The musical director for The Life Drum Core is Lonnie 'Meganut' Marshall, a music instructor at the Silver Lake
Conservatory.

The Griffith Observatory, Getty Center, STAPLES Center, iconic Pink's hot dog stand, and Chris Burden’s outdoor installation Urban Light at Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) join previously announced list including El Capitan Theatre, the Capitol Records Tower, Santa Monica Pier Ferris Wheel, the pylons at LAX, City Hall and The Comedy Store all will perform or operate "dark".

Dine By Candlelight asks residents who wish to participate in Earth Hour to not only turn off the lights for an hour but to spend that evening supporting local business. Participating restaurants, bars and hotels all over the city will dim their lights and serve dinner and drinks by candlelight while offering special Earth Hour menu items.
