Stars like Becky G, Jacob Whitesides, and Tahj Mowry will perform for the The Salvation Army’s sixth annual Rock the Red Kettle concert!
According to PR Newswire, this concert is a part of the organization’s Red Kettle Campaign, which raises money each year around the holiday season for the less fortunate. In addition to Becky, Jacob, and Tahj, Jake Miller, Quinn Martin, and Alec Bailey will also perform. The free concert, which will take place on Saturday, December 5 at 5 p.m. PT at the L.A. LIVE Event Deck in Downtown Los Angeles, will be streamed live on RedKettleReason.org.
“I am excited to be involved with Rock the Red Kettle for the second year. One of my favorite things last year was seeing all of the amazing #RedKettleReason posts my fans shared,” said Becky G. “I support The Salvation Army because I know firsthand that the money they raise goes toward ensuring families will have a roof over their heads and kids will not go to bed hungry. My family struggled when I was younger, and we were lucky to have organizations like The Salvation Army help us get through tough times.”
“The Salvation Army is one of those organizations that people know about – but may not realize all of the awesome things they do,” Jacob said . “I want my fans to know that they can help make a difference in someone’s life by doing something as simple as dropping the change from their pocket into a Red Kettle at the mall or just going online to share their #RedKettleReason. I grew up watching my mom work multiple jobs to support my sister and me and I feel lucky to be in a position to give and ask the fans in my life to give back too.”
This year’s performers will also share their personal motivations for giving by posting their #RedKettleReason throughout the holiday season and inviting their fans to do the same. Fans can win prizes for sharing their #RedKettleReason in the weeks before the concert. The Salvation Army is partnering with Teen Vogue to give fans the chance to win a retweet from their favorite performers, a trip to L.A. to attend the Rock the Red Kettle concert or even the chance to meet the artists before the show (For more information, visit teenvogue.com/redkettlereason).
“This is such a powerful and talented generation of young artists, and their desire to partner with us and show their fans the true meaning of the holiday season is inspiring,” said Lt. Col. Ron Busroe, community relations and development secretary for The Salvation Army. “It does not matter whether you are rich or poor, young or old, we all have the ability to offer hope and change to those in need, by supporting The Salvation Army.”
The Red Kettle Campaign, which runs from Thanksgiving Day through Christmas Eve, gives back to those in need for the holiday season. In addition to giving online or to the more than 25,000 Red Kettle bell ringers found on street corners and retail entrances across the country, supporters can donate through the Army’s text-to-give program. By texting the word “KETTLE” to 80888, donors can send$10 to the Red Kettle Campaign through December 24.
