Music fans braved a torrential rainstorm in New Orleans for a benefit concert raising money for fishermen affected by the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.

Lenny Kravitz, John Legend, Ani DiFranco, Allen Toussaint and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, with Mos Def, headlined the "Gulf Aid" concert Sunday (May 16).

The Gulf Relief Foundation is a nonprofit formed in the spill's aftermath. It says its beneficiaries would include the region's seafood industry and the restoration of coastal wetlands.
