The concert will benefit Toys for Tots and the Los Angeles Food Bank. Fans are asked to bring a new, unwrapped toy (of $10 value or more) to the show and deposit them in the bins manned by the Marines dressed in blue at the venue.

On December 3rd, he closed the show, performing with the legendary BB King during the first ever broadcast of the "GRAMMY Nominations Concert Live!! – Countdown To Music's Biggest Night"
