A virtual concert with country music stars? Count us in.
Simmons Bank Arena is presenting a virtual concert event called And The Beat Goes On Arkansas – A Live Streaming Event that will benefit the Feeding America Food Banks in Arkansas and Hunger Relief Alliance — two entities working hard to feed those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The concert will take place on April 11 at 7 p.m.
This unique concert will take place in various locations and stream from a YouTube link. Country music artist and Arkansas’ own Justin Moore will headline as he streams live from Simmons Bank Arena. Fellow country music artists Tracy Lawrence, Joe Nichols, Adam Hambrick and Heath Sanders will be joining him from afar.
“During these uncertain days, we at Simmons Bank are sure of one thing: that this is a time to come together in support of our state’s most vulnerable populations,” said Freddie Black, chief business development officer at Simmons Bank. “We are proud to help make this event possible and encourage everyone to give what they can to assist the Arkansas Foodbank. As our state’s largest hunger relief organization, the Foodbank feeds more than 280,000 Arkansans across 33 counties – the importance of their mission cannot be overstated, especially today. We applaud all they do, and also thank the artists who have generously shared their talents in support of this cause.”
The Feeding America Food Banks in Arkansas and Hunger Relief Alliance consist of multiple outlets throughout the state. Donations from this event will be distributed and allocated to these various locations.
“The food banks in Arkansas appreciate the support this concert provides us. We are working in every county and community in the state to provide emergency food to those affected by COVID-19. Your support will help your friends, neighbors and family members who are struggling during this difficult time,” said Rhonda Sanders, CEO at Arkansas Foodbank.
