Justin Timberlake, Benefit for Shriners Hospital for Children

Justin Timberlake and Friends
Benefit Concert for
Shriners Hospital for Children

 

 
 

Las Vegas, Nevada.  October 13th-19th, 2008. Justin Timberlake took Vegas by storm this week. First, he kicked off the week by hosting and playing in the PGA golf tournament benefiting
Shriners Hospital for Children. As if that was not enough, the star added even more excitement to the strip on Friday, October 17th
by hosting a concert at Planet Hollywood's Theater for the Performing Arts. The benefit concert for Shriners was titled 'Justin Timberlake and Friends' and JT proved that he has a lot of friends. The show was sold out in advance with 7 thousand seats packed with fans and supporters of Justin. The concert alone is said to
have raised over $1 million for Shriners Hospitals which are
90 percent privately funded.


Justin Timberlake and Friends kept everyone rocking for more than 3 hours. Teen heart throbs The Jonas Brothers kicked off the show, followed by Boyz II Men who proved that chivalry is not dead by delivering long stemmed red roses to the ladies in the audience, Leona Lewis flew in from London to add her gift of song, sexy song bird Rihanna captivated us as she strutted across the stage, Esmee Deters who is on JT's record label Tennmann Records sang solo and performed a duet with Justin which I am sure we will be hearing a lot more of. It was nonstop talent and energy as one after another stars took the stage to belt out hit after hit with JT often performing with his friends, like Will.i.am from Black Eyed Peas, Adam Levine from Marroon 5, and the notorious mega star 50 cent. Lionel Richie, also a Shriner, took the stage as a surprise to perform his hit "Easy" with JT. 


I am sure there was nothing "easy" about putting an event of this magnitude together. Justin was hands on throughout the concert, dazzling us with his talent. We were captivated by his enthusiasm as he danced, sang many of his hits, performed a guitar instrumental, played most instruments on the stage, and paid extreme attention to every detail. Justin made us laugh with his quick wit and touched our hearts with his humanitarianism for helping such a noble cause. There is no doubt in my mind, Justin Timberlake was the perfect host for this venue.


Founded in 1922, Shriners Hospital for Children is celebrating its 85th birthday this year.  Every year, twenty-two Shriners Hospitals provide care for thousands of children under the age of 18 without cost to the patient or family. The medical staff provides the highest quality of care to children with neuromusculoskeletal conditions, burn injuries, spinal cord injuries, and other certain special care needs. If you would like to learn more go to www.shrinershospitals.org.


 Justin Timberlake's gift of himself and his time will help save and alter thousands of children's lives this year alone. It is refreshing to see a gifted individual such as Justin Timberlake share his gift of kindness to help save lives. Thank you Justin for helping give the gift of life to so many in need and for helping to make their dream of living a reality.
