Capitol Records Nashville recording artist and star of Nickelodeon’s iCarly, Jennette McCurdy has raised a total $139,643 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital during her cross country mall tour, Generation Love For St. Jude, which concluded April 14th. For weeks, Jennette performed for thousands of fans and raised money by signing autographs and selling charity CDs with all proceeds benefiting the cause. Before embarking on the tour, Jennette made it her personal mission to raise $100,000 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital – a charity that is very dear to her heart.
“What a great few weeks this has been, being able to play for so many great fans that came out to the shows.” Jennette says of the tour. “What made it even better was the opportunity to partner with St. Jude and not only bring awareness to their life-changing facility, but also raise money to help the patients that come through their doors. I’m proud and honored to be associated with St. Jude and their amazing cause!”
The tour was named after Jennette’s new single “Generation Love,” which was produced by Jay DeMarcus of Rascal Flatts and will appear on her debut album in stores this fall. “Generation Love” is available for purchase at all digital retailers now.
The music video for “Generation Love,” produced by Roman White, will premiere on CMT’s “Big New Music Weekend” this Friday, April 22 beginning at 6:00a.m.EST, and airing all weekend long through Sunday, April 24. It will also air on Nickelodeon at 9:30p.m.EST/PST on Saturday, April 23.
