DETROIT (AP) - The Music Hall Center for the Performing Arts in Detroit is staying alive after raising $1.7 million to avoid defaulting on debt.

The Detroit Free Press (https://on.freep.com/1PVxlXG ) says the announcement was made Friday night during a concert by Chaka Khan.

The Music Hall was facing an April 30 deadline to repay a private equity firm. It still wants to get rid of millions in additional debt during a five-year fundraising campaign.

The theater opened in 1928 and was reorganized as a nonprofit arts organization in 1973.
