Get ready to rock!
We are thrilled to announce that The Salvation Army will host the sixth annual Rock the Red Kettle Concert at the L.A. LIVE Event Deck in Downtown Los Angeles, December 5 at 5 p.m. PT / 8:00 p.m. EST Taking the stage will be some of music’s top up-and-comers, including returning headliner Becky G, with additional performances from rising singer songwriter Jacob Whitesides and rising young pop artist Jake Miller. Other up-and-coming artists including Quinn Martin, Alec Bailey and Tahj Mowry.
Hosted and produced by Ned Specktor of Specktor Media, the free concert will raise awareness of The Salvation Army’s 125th annual Red Kettle Campaign, the oldest charitable fundraiser of its kind in the United States. Money raised during the campaign helps the Army serve nearly 30 million of America’s most vulnerable through an array of social services including food for the hungry, shelter for the homeless and toys for children at Christmas. The concert will be streamed live on RedKettleReason.org so fans can still catch the show even if you’re not in the area.
The Salvation Army is encouraging its supporters to share their motivations for giving using the hashtag #RedKettleReason, whether it is to help feed families or to ensure all kids have a safe place to sleep. This year’s Rock the Red Kettle performers will also share their personal motivations for giving by posting their #RedKettleReason throughout the holiday season and inviting their fans to do the same.
Fans can also win awesome prizes for sharing their #RedKettleReason in the weeks before the concert. The Army is partnering with Teen Vogue to give fans the chance to win a retweet from their favorite performers, a trip to L.A. to attend the Rock the Red Kettle concert or even the chance to meet the artists before the show.

In addition to giving online or to the more than 25,000 Red Kettle bell ringers found on street corners and retail entrances across the country, supporters can donate through the Army’s text-to-give program. By texting the word “KETTLE” to 80888, donors can send $10 to the Red Kettle Campaign through December 24.
We’re so grateful to have the support of each of our performers this year!
We hope to see you there!
