Urban Roundup Entertainment presents the first ever Faith Against Cancer Gospel Concert. This inspirational event is more than just an ordinary concert, as
it will be an uplifting night of encouragement, entertainment and Faith for those affected directly and indirectly by this devastating disease. Faith
Against Cancer’s purpose is to raise cancer awareness within the Faith-Based Community and to help find a way to control this fatal disease.

All are welcome to come enjoy the show and be informed of what increases cancer risks and its effects. Bring your family, friends and loved ones who may be
battling cancer to receive God’s support and love as they go through this difficult time in their life.

“When someone is diagnosed with cancer, their Faith is usually what helps them continue to move forward. That’s why I want us all to come together so that
we can put our Faith Against Cancer. I’ve lost six people that were close to me as a result of cancer within the past five years, therefore, I want to
raise awareness of the disease. My goal is to help raise funds for cancer research and provide a monetary contribution to assist patients,” says Khalif M.
Townes, CEO/President of Urban Roundup Entertainment.

Confirmed musical guests scheduled to appear at the Faith Against Cancer Gospel Concert thus far includes Multiple Grammy and Stellar Award-Winning Singer
Vickie Winans, National Gospel Recording Artist Earnest Pugh, Praise & Worship Leader/Singer Stephen Hurd, Powerhouse Gospel Singer Tamika Patton,
Grammy Nominated Singer/Songwriter Tracy Randall, Gospel Crooner Gary Samuels, Russell Delegation, Bubby Fann & Praise Beyond and Devastation Dance
Crew. Nationally Syndicated Radio Host Lonnie Hunter is slated to host the concert. Bishop Gilbert Coleman, Jr., of Freedom Christian Bible Fellowship,
will give a few wise words of encouragement during the event. Additional performers will be confirmed week after week leading up to the show.

“I am amazed by the vision of this event and I’m so happy that Khalif asked me to be a part of it! Recently, I lost my 29-year-old niece to cancer. So this
is something that hits close to home for me,” says Gospel Icon Vickie Winans.

The Faith Against Cancer Gospel Concert will be produced by Townes and takes place on Saturday, June 8, 2013 at The Wells Fargo Center, 3601 South Broad
Street , Philadelphia , PA beginning at 2:00 PM. The 17,000 seat venue is expected to be filled with believers, saints, cancer patients and those who
simply want to enjoy a great night of uplifting entertainment.

Admission for the event is $20.00 and a portion of all proceeds will benefit cancer research and aide care. Tickets purchased for the Faith Against Cancer
Gospel Concert will also include Free Admission to the Philadelphia Soul’s football game later that evening at 7:00 pm.

Although there are over 200 different known cancers, there’s still so much that is unknown about the disease. Cancer rates continue to rise every year as a
result of many people living to reach an older age in our developing world. Many of us know someone who has cancer that may not be financially able to take
care of their medical costs. This creates a burden for us all as a community because we strive to help others in any way that we can. One of the goals of
Faith Against Cancer is to generate money that will assist aide care organizations with providing support for those in need.

Attendees of Faith Against Cancer will also be provided with informative materials related to cancer that also encourages them to get checked for the
disease. Regular cancer check-ups are necessary because most people who have cancer are unaware since it is often mistaken for other diseases with similar
symptoms. Although cancer researchers know what increases the risk of cancer, the specific causes of the disease are still vague, with the exception of it
being hereditary. Thus, Faith Against Cancer will donate proceeds to cancer research to bring us closer to discovering how to stop it from taking our
family members, friends and loved ones away from us.
