Disney Music Group artists Selena Gomez, Jonas Brothers and Allstar Weekend will perform at the third annual Concert for Hope presented by Staples to raise funds for cancer research.
Concert for Hope will take place at Gibson Amphitheatre at Universal CityWalk in Los Angeles on March 20. All proceeds from the concert will benefit City of Hope.
Selena Gomez & The Scene will headline the show, with a special performance by Jonas Brothers. Allstar Weekend will round out the bill. Gomez and her band recently took home the People’s Choice Award for Favorite Breakthrough Artist. She also stars in Disney Channel’s Emmy-winning hit comedy “Wizards of Waverly Place.”
The multiplatinum-selling, Grammy-nominated Jonas Brothers are longtime supporters of City of Hope. In addition to being recording artists, Jonas Brothers have starred in their own television series and several films. Allstar Weekend was named “The next big thing” by Billboard Magazine and will kick off their next U.S. tour in February.
“It is gratifying to see a young generation of musical artists come together to support a future free from cancer,” said Bob Cavallo, chair of Disney Music Group and longtime supporter of City of Hope through its Music and Entertainment Industry group. “We are fortunate to have the commitment of these talented young artists to help City of Hope fulfill its mission of conducting innovative research and saving lives.”
Concert for Hope has raised nearly $1 million a year for City of Hope. This is the second consecutive year that Staples has served as the event’s national presenting sponsor, and Staples has provided City of Hope with more than $5 million in support since 2004 through various corporate giving and fundraising efforts.
Tickets for the 5 p.m., March 20 concert range from $25 to $150 and are available through LiveNation.com or charge by phone at 800-745-3000.
