With another $20 million needed to finish the Martin Luther King Jr. Washington, DC National Memorial, the race is on to capture more support for the project.

Radio City Music Hall in New York City will host the Dream Concert on Tuesday, September 18, 2007, at 8pm to benefit the DC King Memorial.

Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, Carlos Santana, Jessye Norman, Bebe & Cece Winans, and Robin Thicke will perform.

Garth Brooks, Queen Latifah, Joss Stone, and Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds will also share the stage.

Whoopi Goldberg will be a guest presenter for the evening.

Tickets go on sale Monday, July 30th, at 9am, and are priced at $250, $500 and $1,000.

The Martin Luther King Jr. Washington DC National Memorial project is running out of time to secure the rest of the money needed to finish construction.

Groundbreaking took place on November 13, 2006 for the $100 million project.

Muhammad Ali, Angela Bassett, Jamie Foxx, Cuba Gooding Jr., Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Kerry Washington, Ben Affleck, Shaquille O'Neal, LaDanian Tomlinson, and former New York City Mayor David Dinkins are on the host committee.
