I just heard this feel good story and I wanted to share. Jay Leno has just announced that he is going to be doing a free concert in Detroit. He will be performing at The Palace of Auburn Hills on April 7th. Why Detroit you ask? He picked it because currently Detroit has the highest unemployment rate in the country at 11.6% and this is his way of giving back. He says he was actually inspired by President Obama, who says, in these difficult times we all have to do our part. Tickets will be handed out on an honor system and Jay really wants the tickets to go to people who are unemployed. He wants these people who are down on their luck right now to come and have some fun and not worry about costs. Pepsi is sponsoring the show and and even the parking will be free. Leno is even considering bringing the show to other cities if it is a success. I would bet he probably needs to start working on an itinerary. I hope more stars start giving back and doing the right thing to help support their country and their fans.
Grab your kids and share the news, The Jonas Brothers have just announced dates for their 2009 World Tour. The boys will travel to 3 continents and will kick off the tour in Dallas on June 20th. The boys are so excited because they feel they have put together a tour that their fans will never forget. They will be playing new music as well as using some of the newest coolest technology for the show. They are going to have a huge stage, which is actually more than 140 feet. Of course there will be stellar laser lighting effects and giant video screens plus a unique, one of a kind, circular water screen. The Jonas Brothers say there will be a lot of surprises in store and they really want to get up close and personal with the fans and provide them with a very interactive concert. Joining the boys will be “American Idol” winner, Jordin Sparks.
One final good deed to share. E! Entertainment news donated $250,000 to Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s charity called The Jolie- Pitt Foundation. The foundation gives a large portion of the money goes to help in New Orleans, as well as the UN to help in Darfur, and money also goes to Cambodia to aid in children’s causes. I hope we continue to see more stories like the ones I have mentioned today.
