NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Little Richard and Chuck Berry are dusting off the songbook of a New Orleans legend to raise money for the city’s parks and schools.

They’re part of a May 30 concert at the New Orleans Arena called “The Domino Effect” because they’ll be performing songs popularized by New Orleans native and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame artist Fats Domino.

The concert is a fundraising event for a charity run by New Orleans Saints Quarterback Drew Brees called “Operation Kids,” which has raised more than $1.5 million since 2007.

Domino, who is 81, has been invited to attend the concert but will not perform. He lives in suburban New Orleans.

Brees says he’s thrilled about the lineup that also includes Keb Mo, Junior Brown, Taj Mahal and other artists.
