Two-time GRAMMY Award winner and multi-platinum recording artist Lauren Daigle and her foundation The Price Fund have announced a special online streaming concert to benefit those effected by Hurricane Laura in her home state of Louisiana. The hurricane, which made landfall August 27th, displaced thousands of families and left and estimated $10 billion in damages in its wake. Recorded live at the historic Orpheum Theater in New Orleans, the concert will feature stripped down renditions of some of Daigle’s most popular hits including the triple-platinum GRAMMY Award winning single “You Say” and platinum certified “Rescue” plus a new song.
The broadcast will premiere on Veeps at 8 pm EST/7 pm CST on Sunday, October 11th and will only be available to watch for 48 hours. All proceeds from ticket sales will go directly to The Salvation Army and American Red Cross and their efforts to provide direct support, meals and shelter for those effected by Hurricane Laura. Tickets and VIP opportunities begin at $25 and are now available at www.laurendaigle.com
“When I was kid, growing up in Louisiana, we were plagued by hurricanes,” shares Daigle. “I know first-hand the devastation they bring. With everything going on in the world right now, I want to invite you to join me in loving on those effected by the hurricanes who have lost their homes and so much more.”
