Evrod Cassimy donates more than $30,000 to Detroit students and announces new album, party and live concert
Detroit, MI - Evrod Cassimy, Morning News Anchor for WDIV-TV Local 4 in Detroit is pleased to announce the release of his new album “E3.” “E3” is the follow-up to his 2019 sophomore album “Just Evrod” and 2020 Christmas EP “A Cassimy Kinda Christmas" and includes charitable initiative to help support Detroit area students with educational needs. Cassimy said, “E3 is the culmination of everything I’ve been through in the past year and a half. From surviving COVID, to having a new baby girl, celebrating 12 years of marriage and trying to find happiness in a crazy mixed up world. This new album takes you on quite the ride while having some fun along the way.” With songs like “U Know, U Know” and “Mama,” “E3” features incredibly personal songs about his life beyond the anchor desk. “This is my third full length album and I wrote every song. Writing is my passion and I get to do every day for television. “E3” takes that passion a step further by setting it to music.”, Cassimy added. “E3” is available for pre-order on iTunes for $6.99 ($9.99 after) and pre-saves on Apple Music and Spotify starting on his 37th birthday, Friday, September 17th. It will be available everywhere on Friday October 29th.
To celebrate the release of “E3,” Cassimy is donating more than $30,000 to Detroit students. The money was raised by Cassimy himself through generous donations from a variety on sponsors in Metro Detroit who wanted to join in in his initiative to support Cass Tech students. He has teamed up with Emagine Theatre for a live concert event on Saturday October 30th. “E3: Album Release Party & Concert Fundraiser” is presented by Triumph Church and Greektown Casino. The event is free and open to the public and everyone is invited to attend. To attend, guest must register in advance online at www.EvrodCassimy.com. Seating is limited and on a first come, first-served basis and while supplies last. Tickets will not be available at the door.
Cassimy will be performing live with his band, playing songs from his new album and many more. Recording artist/NBC’s The Voice finalist, Beth, will also take the stage. The free party and concert will benefit Cass Tech High School students through the non-profit The Triangle Society. The Triangle Society is an organization that provides funding resources to support the education initiatives for Cass Tech Students in the critical areas of need including academics, athletics, and fine arts. A special check presentation will follow the live performances. Guests will also have a chance to purchase merchandise and a portion of the proceeds will also benefit the organization and students.
Cassimy recently opened for Boys II Men and En Vogue at Freedom Hill and is no stranger to giving back to Detroit students. Earlier this year, he released his single “Good Enough,” a pandemic inspired song. The mask worn on the cover art for the single was part of a fundraiser for the Detroit Public Schools Foundation. Cassimy donated 100% of the mask sales to the non-profit. Cassimy states, “Education has always been a priority for me growing up. My mom is a retired teacher and my father is a retired principal and superintendent. Using something I love like writing and recording music to give back to something like education that I find so important is the best of both worlds. I’m truly humbled that so many people have supported me in this mission.”
