Ke$ha to Perform Flood Relief Benefit in Nashville
Pop sensation Ke$ha announced Thursday that she will perform a benefit concert for victims of the recent Nashville flood, on June 16 at Limelight Nashville. The 'Tik Tok' singer, who is a Nashville native, will donate all profits toward flood relief efforts.
"I'm thrilled to announce that I will be playing a show to help benefit Nashville, my hometown," says Ke$ha. "One hundred percent of the profits from ticket sales will go to help the victims of these devastating floods. Nashville helped shape me as an artist and as a person ... and my love for this city is beyond words. I will continue to do anything I can to help rebuild this city and support the families and animals who have been affected by this tragedy."
Those affected by the tragedy include thousands who have been driven from their homes. In addition, 21 people have died as a result of the flooding. Twenty-one counties in Tennessee have been declared federal disaster areas, and damages may top $1 billion.
Tickets for Ke$ha's benefit concert went on sale Thursday (May 6) for $30. Packages that also include a meet-and-greet are available for $100.
