ALL-STAR CONCERT HELPS KIDS TO TUNE OF $10.5 MILLION

SHARE ALL-STAR CONCERT HELPS KIDS TO TUNE OF $10.5 MILLION

Paul McCartney helped raise $10.5 million for handicapped children and young musicians during an all-star concert. Rain failed to dampen spirits at the charity concert Saturday at Knebworth Park, 20 miles north of London. More than 100,000 fans cheered wildly as the former Beatle launched into "I Saw Her Standing There" and "Back in the USSR." The lineup also included Elton John, Cliff Richard, Phil Collins, Eric Clapton, Mark Knopfler, Robert Plant and Pink Floyd. The proceeds will be divided between a project that uses music as therapy for children with mental, physical or emotional difficulties, and a new school for performing arts.
