It takes extraordinary fans to do extraordinary things. Most fans attend live shows to see their favorite performer, maybe buy a t-shirt, and sometimes will wait after the show for an autograph. Fans of American Idol-winner Kris Allen have taken their support of the singer to a new level.
Alright With Music was formed by fans of Kris Allen that hope to raise $25,000 for the Music Empowers Foundation by December 31.
"Kris has taught us about the important work done by the Music Empowers Foundation, which provides funding to non-profit organizations that offer innovative music programs in under-served areas," the group stated in a press release earlier this week.
Music Empowers founder Andy Davis said that the foundation is "incredibly honored" by the current fundraiser.
"Kris has become an amazing advocate for music education," Davis said in a press release. "This year, his support of organizations like Music Empowers has helped to bring music education programs to about 100,000 kids."
So far Alright With Music has already managed to raise over $9000 for Music Empowers.
Alright With Music originated earlier this year as Team Alright With Moo, a group of fans that raised over $25,000 this past June in honor of Allen's 25th birthday for Heifer International.
