LOS ANGELES, CA (GINA for Missing Persons) - GINA for Missing Persons, the internationally acclaimed concert series to raise awareness for those who go missing every year, announces 'The Squeaky Wheel World-Wide Tour,' October 16 - November 4, 2006. The tour will feature several hundred artists performing over 150 events throughout 50 states and eight countries to gain attention for over 150 missing people in the effort to bring at least ONE home.
The international 'Squeaky Wheel Tour' honors Gina Bos who disappeared from Lincoln, Nebraska six years ago. The 19-day tour is the creation by her sister, Jannel Rap, who developed the GINA Concert series in 2001 bringing together recording artists from all over the U.S. to obtain attention for ALL people who are missing. Every missing child, every missing adult is an important missing person.
'Each missing person's story is unique, important and as valuable as the next,' said Rap. 'If someone took your child or your sister or brother, what would you do? Would you pull down the moon? Would you look under the rock? Would you scream as loud as you could?'
'Would you become the Squeaky Wheel?' added Rap.
'The Squeaky Wheel Tour' will have its kick-off event in Lincoln, Nebraska on October 16, 2006 and officially conclude with an event in Little Rock, Arkansas on November 4. Pre- and post-'Squeaky Wheel' events are scheduled September 6 - November 19. A list of the musical artists, locations, and dates is posted at www.411GINA.org and updated daily.
