19 MUSIC/ARISTA NASHVILLE artist and OKLAHOMA native CARRIE UNDERWOOD will donate one million dollars to the AMERICAN RED CROSS for disaster relief upon the wrap of the "BLOWN AWAY TOUR" LAST NIGHT (5/23). The donation will be comprised of proceeds from the tour, which launched in SPRING 2012.
“I have watched the devastation in my home state of OKLAHOMA over the past several days with great sadness,” said UNDERWOOD. “With the help of my fans who attended my concerts over the past year, we can offer the RED CROSS a little extra help in comforting those affected by the recent tornados.”
Earlier in the tour following a performance in ATLANTIC CITY, NJ, UNDERWOOD designated funds to support the response and relief efforts in NEW JERSEY after the wrath of HURRICANE SANDY. A percentage of the proceeds from her CANADIAN concerts will be donated to the CANADIAN RED CROSS.
