Musician Mike Block was crossing the street in Manhattan one day when he was hit by a cab, knocking out 9 teeth and damaging his jaw. To pay off his medical expenses running up to $70,000 (he was uninsured) and to get dental work done, the singer started an IndieGogo campaign six months ago. He offered music lessons, house concerts, custom songs, and more in exchange for help paying just a chunk of his medical bills: $17,000. He raised the money in 24 hours, and $48,001 by the time his campaign ended. Block got his dental work completed in February, and his new album, originally titled Tooth (but later renamed Brick By Brick) is now complete and is slated for release this fall.
