Jumping generosity!!

Dave Matthews Band has pledged ONE MILLION DOLLARS to regional Hurricane Sandy relief efforts!

The band has decided to turn their November 30th winter tour opener in East Rutherford, NJ into a benefit concert! All proceeds from the show will go toward helping the storm-ravaged area!

Ah-mazing! Beyond ah-mazing!! Quadruple ah-mazing!!!!

We ADORE artists who give back to the their fans, especially in times of need!!

And we sincerely hope other other community leaders follow suit!

Hopefully the band isn't being generous out of guilt, we doubt Sandy hummed Crash Into Me as she crashed into Manhattan and the Jersey coastline.

NBCUniversal is throwing a hurricane party!

In an effort to raise funds for the victims of Hurricane Sandy, the network is airing a concert telethon that will air simultaneously on NBC, Bravo, E!, CNBC, USA, SYFY, Style, G4, and more for one hour!

One hour? Isn't that more of a telesprint?

Hey, it's not the quantity of the show, it's the quality. And if they wanted quality performances, they couldn't have chosen much better than Bruce Springsteen and Christina Aguilera!

In addition to the Boss and Xtina, the benefit will also feature performances by

Josh Duhamel Fergie

Hooray for celeb couples who love charity!

Fergie got the Black Eyed Peas together to put on a benefit show in Josh Duhamel's recently flooded hometown of Minot, North Dakota and raised $1.3 million for relief efforts!

The money went toward the much needed Minot Area Recovery Fund which is bankrolling the town's rebuilding efforts after flood waters forced 11,000 residents out of their homes in June.

Duhamel showed his appreciation for his wife's band on Twitter after their performance Sunday, tweeting:

"A HUGE thank you to @iamwill, @TabBep, @apl_de & #Fergie for their incredible act of kindness for doing #MinotRising. North Dakota loves you."

Will.i.am. responded warmly with:

"@joshduhamel i.am proud to support #MinotRising…this is what its all about…'Americans helping americans' one neighborhood United States."

Sorry Jay-Z and Kanye, but this may have been one of our favorite collaborations of the year! Thanks to helping out those in need, guys (gal)!

Cyndi Lauper Hopes To Help Japan Through Her Music

Filed under: InspirationCyndi Lauper

Cyndi Lauper helps out Japan

Pop star Cyndi Lauper is helping Japan's disaster relief that only way she knows how: Singing!

With concerts scheduled for tonight and tomorrow in Osaka while touring Japan to promote her new Memphis Blues album, she plans on doing radio and TV charity events before each show.

On top of donating ALL her Memphis Blues royalties earned in Japan to the Japanese Red Cross, she will be collecting money from fans to donate, and has even recorded a ringtone to sell in Japan with 100% of the proceeds going to help victims of the disaster.

Perhaps the singer feels so close to this disaster because she was THERE during the earthquake! Despite being urged to leave, they didn't feel they were in imminent danger so they elected to stay and offer support through music.

This past Friday, she tweeted:

"The shows have been enlightening. The strength and dignity of the people here have been inspiring. I hope we helped them feel better xx"

We're sure you did! Thank you, Cyndi!

John Mayer Premieres New Song For Good Cause

Filed under: Music MinuteJohn Mayer

How nice!

John Mayer was on hand at the Blythedale Children's Hospital in New York yesterday, performing as part of a benefit concert for the kiddies.

He even premiered a brand new song called the Age of Worry, which you can hear in the video (above)!

Kind of a somber tune for the occasion, but we're happy to see him lending his voice to a good cause!

Condoleezza Rice Performs On Stage With Aretha Franklin!

wenn2941362jb.jpg

We give her a lot of credit for going up there and performing with such a legend! It must have been pretty bizarre - but awesome - to be there to see it!

Last night Aretha Franklin was joined on stage at Philadelphia's Mann Music Center by none other than Condoleezza Rice for a benefit concert for urban children!

The former Secretary of State performed on the piano while Franklin sang I Say A Little Prayer and My Country 'Tis of Thee, and although many critics considered Rice's performance a little "safe," The Washington Post asserts that the collaboration "had kind of a goofy brilliance."

Franklin said:

"All I had seen of Dr. Rice was in a political atmosphere. It just seemed foreign that she would be a classical pianist. She really does play. She's formidable. We decided to give it a try. So here we are, in the city of Brotherly – and Sisterly – Love."

So cool!

Maybe Condoleezza will forgo politics and become a musical superstar! LOLs!

Or not - but kudos, bb! We are sincerely impressed!

Thoughts??
