LeAnn Rimes Hosts Tornado Relief Benefit Show


On Sunday, June 5th, America's country sweetheart and multi-Grammy Award winner/actress LeAnn Rimes will take the stage for an all acoustic set to assist victims of the tornadoes that ravaged Alabama on April 27th and Missouri on May 22nd. 

The evening will not only feature a full acoustic set by LeAnn, but her husband, and new NBC drama star of the show "Playboy," Eddie Cibrian will co-host along with a silent auction that will start before the show begins. The silent auction will include signed memorabilia from Justin Bieber, Kelly Clarkson, Kim Kardashian, Reba McEntire, the cast of 'Glee,' and a special auction for a private drink with LeAnn Rimes and husband Eddie Cibrian following the show.  

Event coordinator and producer, Jonathan Jaxson spoke about how this came to fruition, "I have wanted to help the victims of the Alabama tornadoes since they happened in April, but didn't have all the money I would like to give to help others to have the chance to get back on their feet. After the recent tornado in Joplin, MO, I couldn't sit any longer and I decided to start calling up celebrity friends and making contact on Twitter with celebrities I knew about joining on for something that can change so many lives in desperate need right now. The first person to reply was, my Twitter friend, LeAnn Rimes. Without question she said, "YES! What can I do to help?" From there it was a matter of 8-hours and I had secured the venue, the talent, and radio promotion partner WQIK. Now we can help here in my hometown of Jacksonville, FL, and can be greatly entertained by doing so with one of country music's greatest!"   Jaxson continued, "I have been in tears for weeks watching these tragedies unfold on TV and online, and now it is time to stand up and do something about it..."    

LeAnn says, "We all need a hand sometimes and this is the time. Our heart goes out to Alabama and Missouri and all those affected by the recent tragedies there. I am happy Eddie and I can help out in some way."
