Kids Helping Kids Presents
Ben Rector
with opening act, Tyrone Wells
A Benefit Concert

Singer, songwriter, Ben Rector is most notably recognized for his smash hits such as “Drive” and “Brand New”, and he just released his sixth album, titled “Magic” which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Americana/Folk Charts and No. 44 on the Billboard 200 chart. The Oklahoma born and Nashville based multi-instrumentalist uncovers that feeling of “magic” within 13 anthems equally rooted in whimsical nostalgia and excitement for the future. His ceaseless touring and prolific output paid off in a big way on the 2015 breakout Brand New. Not only did it bow at #9 on the Billboard Top 200 but it yielded a massive hit in the form of the title track “Brand New.” Clocking 41 million-plus streams on Spotify, the single organically landed over 40 film and television placements, including a trailer for The Edge of Seventeen, a TV spot for Disney’s Moana, and MLB World Series and Olympics primetime spots. Kids Helping Kids is excited to feature Ben Rector as one of this year’s headlining artists. He is sure to bring magic to the stage in a performance you won't want to miss!

KHK is incredibly excited to welcome back to the stage its first-ever performing artist, Tyrone Wells. Singer-songwriter Wells is sure to capture the hearts of any guest in attendance. He loves to create music. He loves to perform. He feels certain that he will make music until his dying day, as it is not only gratifying for him to create but also therapeutic and necessary. With over 60 million Spotify streams and music placed in television shows like, “American Idol”, “Grey’s Anatomy” and “One Tree Hill”, Tyrone Wells is sure to give guests an experience they won't forget.

Kids Helping Kids’ annual concert gala is an all inclusive event that brings the community together to accomplish the ultimate goal of making a tangible difference in the lives of others. John Ondrasik, lead singer of Five for Fighting, called it “a blast to play and an inspiration for all.”
