Bring a toy donation to free Ruben Studdard concert

By Ashley Nix

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - Wednesday at 7 p.m., doors open at Boutwell Audotorium for a big, FREE concert with headliner Ruben Studdard.  Although its free, organizers are asking you to bring a toy as a donation for children in the community who might be less fortunate this Christmas.

Other acts performing Wednesday are Mishon, Yung Ralph, and Shaudi Fly. Mayor William Bell is also expected to be on hand to support the cause.

Organizers say this is a bigger project called "Toyz N Da Hood" starting in Atlanta and spreading to other large cities like Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Chicago and Jacksonville.
