ARISTA NASHVILLE artist CARRIE UNDERWOOD will join TONY BENNETT for the DRIVE TO END HUNGER benefit concert at the STAPLES CENTER in LOS ANGELES on SEPTEMBER 24th. The concert will also feature DIANA KRALL, JOHN MAYER and STEVIE WONDER and proceeds will go towards the cause of ending hunger among older AMERICANS.
The benefit will also celebrate BENNETT’s 85th birthday and will feature songs from BENNETT’s album, TONY BENNETT: Duets II, which will be in stores on SEPTEMBER 20th.
"It is terrific to be working with AARP once again, especially for a cause like ending hunger among older AMERICANS, which often does not get much attention. I know this event will make a big difference and I am thrilled to be a part of it and have some of my favorite musical performers join me for the concert," said BENNETT.
