BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — The Jazz Foundation of America is currently collecting donations to benefit a local musician who recently suffered from a stroke.
Wessell “Warmdaddy” Anderson was born in Brooklyn, but he moved to Baton Rouge to study with Alvin Batiste at Southern University. He still resides in the Red Stick with his son, who is also a musician.
Anderson recently suffered a major stroke and is undergoing physical, occupational and speech therapy. Mounting medical bills have put a major strain on the artist, so the Jazz Foundation is offering support.
If you would like to make a donation to help aid in his recovery and hopeful return to music performance, you can send a check to the address below. All of the donation will go directly to Anderson and his recovery. The donation is tax deductable.
