Benefit concerts

Stars Raise Cash for Nashville

Looks like Ke$ha is finally living up to that dollar sign in her name: the recording star is holding a benefit concert for her hometown of Nashville, to help victims of the recent devastating flood. Tickets for the June 16 gig range from $30 to $100, with all proceeds going to families and animals affected by the flood. "Nashville helped shape me as an artist and as a person, and my love for this city is beyond words,” she said. Ke$ha is one of many stars organizing for Nashville: The Recording Academy has established the MusiCares Nashville Flood Relief Fund, which will use the 12th Annual Grammy Block Party and Membership Celebration to raise cash to help local Tennessee musicians. A variety of bluegrass, country, and funk groups are slated to perform.
