Oliver J. Wicker

Date: Thu, Dec. 12, 2013 My father, Oliver Wicker, was gunned down in the middle of Hollygrove in April of 2013. Due to the gun violence in NOLA, my family has lost a huge member of our family. As his oldest daughter, i have pledged to donate all my ticket sales to my upcoming performances in Houston, TX to SilenceIsViolence. The work they are doing in the community is amazing and we should all take an active part in supporting each other through these hard times as well as being proactive in taking back our streets! Tickets can be purchased online for $10 at
