Blake Shelton to Perform Online for Veterans
Blake Shelton will perform a show online Friday night (Jan. 31) for a worthwhile cause.
The ‘Doin’ What She Likes’ singer will join comedian Jon Stewart in performing to benefit injured military veterans and their families. PepsiCo Inc. is making a $1 million donation to stream the show, with the proceeds benefiting the Bob Woodruff Foundation, named for the ABC journalist who was wounded by a roadside bomb in Iraq in 2006.
The show will begin at 9:45PM ET, and will take place in a temporary venue built for the Pepsi company in Manhattan’s Bryant Park, in connection with the weekend’s Super Bowl activities.
The event will be streamed at Pepsi.com, with a button to the side of the screen for viewers wishing to make a donation to Woodruff’s foundation.
Shelton, who is nominated for five ACM awards, including Entertainer of the Year, will kick off his Ten Time Crazier Tour later this year. He will perform on the ‘Tonight Show with Jay Leno’ on Feb. 5, one day before Leno’s final show.
