If you’d like to support an outstanding cause while enjoying a great time and some good tunes, then you need to check out 500 Songs For Kids. Incentive Solutions is proud to be able to announce that Amber Johnson, our Director of Operations, is performing Guns N’ Roses’ “Sweet Child O’ Mine” at The Loft At Center Stage on April 25th as part of the event. The 500 Songs For Kids Foundation is “a 501(c)(3) organization that was founded in 2007 with the mission to enrich the lives of children suffering from illness or hardship. They work year-round to bring music to children’s hospitals and special needs camps through live interactive concerts, hospital bedside performances and their Songs For Kids Records songwriting and recording program.”
When we asked Amber why working with 500 Songs For Kids was so important to her, she said that “music can have such a profound effect on the human spirit. It can make you happy and it can comfort you when you're sad or hurting. To work with an organization that understands this truth and wants to leverage that for the good of children is such an honor and joy. It's something that we look forward to every single year. These kids are fighting for their lives and it's the least we can do.”
During the concert series, 500 artists will sing Rolling Stone Magazine’s 500 greatest songs of all time at three different venues over twelve dates:
April 10-12 – Smith’s Olde Bar
April 17-19 – The Earl
April 24-26 – The Loft At Center Stage
May 1-3 – The Loft At Center Stage
Other notable artists that are participating include Skid Row, Angie Aparo, Mastodon, Sonia Leigh, Belle & Sebastian, and Arrested Development.
