Jake Owen Plays StageIt.com Shows, Raises Funds For St. Jude
December 6, 2011 at 1:32 PM (PT)
RCA NASHVILLE artist JAKE OWEN recently played his second STAGEIT.com show to benefit ST. JUDE CHILDREN’S RESEARCH HOSPITAL.
“If I can’t be on the road playing songs for people,” said JAKE “I’ll do it from my kitchen through a live concert on STAGEIT.COM. The concerts are very spur of the moment. There aren’t any mics or cords, just a few guitars and my MAC that has an eyesight camera on it. I tweet about it ahead of time to let everyone know we’re doing it. The other night we raised 3K for ST. JUDE in just 35 minutes. I would have been playing music with my friends in my kitchen anyway, so it’s a pretty cool way to give back.”
JAKE’s philanthropy continues on SATURDAY (12/10) when JAKE will hold his annual MARDY’S TENNIS & JAKE’S MUSIC FEST on in his hometown of VERO BEACH, FL. EMI NASHVILLE artist ERIC PASLAY and RCA/NASHVILLE artist CHRIS YOUNG will also perform. The events benefit the MARDY FISH FOUNDATION, ST. JUDE and the JAKE OWEN FOUNDATION.
