ABC 7 News: Wiz Khalifa, Wu-Tang Clan to headline concert aboard Alameda's USS Hornet Museum [Video], April 18, 2017



USS Hornet Museum Executive Director Jill Knowland Rapposelli acknowledges some of the artists might not seem like an obvious fit for a historic Naval aircraft carrier. "I think you have to look past the rough exteriors. They all say 'don't judge a book by it's cover' because these bands do a lot of charity work. A portion of every ticket sale is going to the Hornet as a donation," she said.

Wiz Khalifa recently stirred controversy during a recent trip to Colombia for a tribute to drug kingpin Pablo Escobar. He will one be one of several artists at the two-day music event.

ABC7 News asked a few attendees of Tuesday's commemoration what they thought of the artists. "Any exposure to the ship, to get the younger folks to come out here because once they come here for the music, then they'll see the ship, and I think that's fantastic," filmmaker George Retelas said.
