Alicia Keys, Amy Grant, Carole King, Herb Alpert, John Legend, Katy Perry, Lani Hall, Quincy Jones and Vince Gill will perform at a star-studded evening being billed as “You’ve Got a Friend”¦A Celebration of Carole King and Her Music” to benefit Paul Newman’s The Painted Turtle camp, it was announced today. The magical evening of performances will be held at Los Angeles’ Dolby Theatre on December 4, 2012. Ticket sales for the evening, produced by Lou Adler and Kevin Duncan and sponsored by iHeartmedia (formerly Clear Channel) Media & Entertainment Los Angeles and iHeartRadio, are on sale today at www.dolbytheatre.com.
“Carole King’s music spans decades and genres as evidenced by the musical diversity of the artists participating,” said Adler. “The event is a celebration of the impact Carole has had on the world of music, and her ongoing support of Paul Newman’s philosophy and the Painted Turtle’s mission, that through innovative camp programs children with serious medical conditions can recapture their childhoods and begin to re-imagine the possibility of their lives and simply be kids.”
Following the evening of performances, a VIP after party will take place at The Ray Dolby Ballroom.
The Painted Turtle is a camp in The SeriousFun Children’s Network, which is a growing global community of innovative camps and programs founded by Paul Newman that provide life-changing support to children with serious illnesses and their families. Since opening in 2004, the Painted Turtle has provided children throughout California who suffer from chronic and life-threatening illnesses the opportunity to rediscover the ordinary joys of being a child through a year-round camp and hospital outreach programs. To date, over 22,832 children and their families have been served by over 10,281 doctors, nurses and program volunteers. No child or family pays to attend The Painted Turtle.
