The devastating flooding in Tennessee at the beginning of the month resulted in more than 15 flood-related deaths in the state, the widespread destruction of property and the endangerment of many animals. People across the United States are rushing to offer their support to the flood relief efforts, but it's not just everyday Americans lending a hand. Celebrities, such as pop singer/songwriter Ke$ha, are pitching in as well.
Ke$ha — a native of the flood-affected Nashville — has announced a benefit concert to be held June 16 at the Limelight entertainment venue in Nashville. Tickets go on sale Thursday (May 6) at 5 p.m. CT, and all the concert's proceeds will be donated to the assistance of families and animals affected by the Tennessee floods.
"I'm thrilled to announce that I will be playing a show to help benefit Nashville, my hometown," the "Tik Tok" singer said in a press release. "100% 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."
Tickets for Ke$ha's flood benefit concert will start at $30. Special VIP ticket packages are available for $100, offering purchasers the opportunity to meet and greet the singer.
