Pop titan Kelly Clarkson has finally announced the initial lineup for her upcoming Miracle on Broadway fundraising event. First launched back in 2014, the event brings together giants in the music community for a one-night only concert to raise money and awareness for a slew of charities. In the past, those charities have included Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, Monroe Harding Children’s Home, Second Harvest Foot Bank and Thistle Farms. The inaugural event raised more than $400,000 for the worthy causes. This year promises to be as star-studded and magical as the last.
Performers (so far) include Reba, Kelsea Ballerini, "Nashville" star Charles Esten, Ronnie Dunn, The Steeldrivers and newcomer RaeLynn. More performers to be announced soon. The 2016 event takes place Friday (Dec. 16) at Bridgestone Arena; tickets go on-sale Nov. 4 at 10am.
“I love my adopted hometown of Nashville with all of my heart and I am so honored to be able to give back to the community alongside some of my favorite artists and friends for my first annual Miracle on Broadway benefit concert!” Clarkson previously shared of the event. “I thank all of the artists joining me, as well as the people of Nashville for making me feel so welcome over the last 7 years I have called it home!"
More recently, Clarkson has been making the media rounds promoting her first-ever children's book titled River Rose and the Magical Lullaby. “It was a cool thing to be on a plane with my daughter,” she posted on Twitter back in February announcing the release. “I started writing down these little fun stories… and I thought I’d write little stories for her and put pictures with it. That was the initial idea. The little stories ended up turning into a book, for each place we kind of went. I guess my hope is for little kids to read River Rose and be inspired by it and know they can achieve anything and they can still dream big and make big things happen.”
River Rose and the Magical Lullaby is out now.
