Texas-based singer/songwriter Jewel has emerged back on the scene for a charitable cause, with two new scheduled performances in Nashville on April 28.
Proceeds from the show directly benefit Project Clean Water, a non-profit organization she founded in 1997 to help bring awareness to clean water shortages and raise money for the repair of water sources in poor areas all around the world.
Jewel’s Project Clean Water, together with Virgin Unite and the Voss Foundation have further joined efforts to create the “Give a Drop” campaign, which makes it easy to contribute $5 by texting DROP to 85944.
Jewel is set to perform at the Bluebird café with performances starting at 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. Due to the small relaxed nature of the shows and limited seating arrangements, Jewel has allowed her fans the opportunity for a meet and greet session through the purchase of Gold Circle seating for $250, while general seating remains at $100.
Southeast Ethiopia and the poor Dogon villages of Mali are just a few of the areas affected and funded by the singer’s humanitarian project. Extending to the public her love for music while simultaneously promoting a cause close to her heart, she explains “It’s wonderful to perform some of my favorite compositions in such an intimate setting and help those in need at the same time.”
