When rock band, Heart, canceled their appearance at SeaWorld, they did not hold back on their thoughts about animals held in captivity. Since then, the band has been outspoken about freeing these animals. They recently shared on Twitter that their upcoming Earth Day performance will be raising funds for orca charities. They wrote:

“Seattle mark your calendar! Ann&Nancy will be performing on #EarthDay
4/22/14 @EMPmuseum to raise money 4 Orca relief More info coming soon!”

According to Orca Conservancy, Heart will be joined in the lineup by Arielle, Country Joe McDonald, Sir Mix-a-Lot, Andrew Morse and others. The beneficiaries of the show include The Center for Whale Research, OrcaLab, and the International Marine Mammal Project of Earth Island Institute, through Orca Conservancy’s Orca Trust Fund.
