Escape Tracks will be supplying fans with a hearty concert next Saturday (May 16) with some of R&B's youngest and brightest talents. The Escape Tracks Virtual R&B Music Festival will include Queen Naija, Luh Kel, Eric Bellinger, and BJ The Chicago Kid as headliners.

In partnership with YouTube and its #WithMe campaign, 100% of the proceeds from the virtual event will benefit the MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund. "Since we have the ability to assist, what better way to contribute than the Escape Tracks team and I producing a virtual event to help an organization like MusiCares stay heroically on the frontlines of providing much needed financial aid to so many," said Escape Tracks founder Kyle Sassi.

"With YouTube as our largest platform for Escape Tracks, we've partnered with YouTube Music to bring a seamlessly transparent, fundraising event and virtual festival where people can donate to MusiCares with a click of a button while watching live streamed at-home performances by their favorite R&B artists."

Fans can access free festival tickets here. The festival kicks off at 4 p.m. ET on Escape Tracks' YouTube page.
