Robin Thicke To Unplug For VH1 Save The Music Foundation Series
This marks the first stop in the series which will then travel to New York City in June and close out at the breathtaking William Hill Estate in Napa Valley this September.
Last year's Songwriters Music Series featured performances by Glee star Matthew Morrison in New York, The Band Perry in Nashville, Tennessee and Colbie Caillat as well as Andy Grammer in Los Angeles.
Songwriters Music Series benefits the VH1 Save The Music Foundation in their mission to provide children with access to a complete education that includes music. These intimate evenings serve as a platform for energized, informed and socially conscious individuals to network amidst great music, a sponsored bar and food. Each event will also feature today's emerging musicians and most celebrated artists/bands performing hit songs in support of the cause. In total, the 2011 Songwriters Music Series raised over $358,000, which was enough to restore 11 music education programs nationwide. This year, the Foundation hopes to raise even more so that a greater number of students are provided the tools they need to create, innovate and become the next great leaders in an increasingly competitive world.
"The VH1 Save The Music Foundation does so much work to ensure that future generations will have the instruction and instruments to help them pursue their dreams," said Robin Thicke. "I'm just honored to be able to help the cause and put on a show for the amazing city of Chicago."
