The “Truth Hurts” rising star Lizzo will perform at a special benefit concert supporting suicide prevention in Nashville this November.
The concert, set for November 30 at Municipal Auditorium, is dubbed Live. Life. Love: A Concert for Suicide Prevention, which will be presented by Journeys and 107.5 The River. Lizzo, the pop icon who has been dominating airwaves this year after releasing her breakthrough LP, will headline the event. Rapper Jon Bellion, pop group lovelytheband, former One Direction member Louis Tomlinson, and pop artist Chelsea Cutler will also take the stage.
A portion of proceeds from the event will benefit the non-profit organization To Write Love On Her Arms, which supports people struggling with addiction, depression, or thoughts of suicide. The River’s Program Director Jonathan Shuford explained to Fox 17 Nashville that the concert, which has been held over the past two years, has raised $30,000 for the nonprofit.
“With a bigger venue in 2019 and a list of incredible artists and human beings that have agreed to come and advocate for mental health, love, and acceptance, I have no doubt that this year’s edition will be the best yet,” Shuford said. “A huge thank you to the artists, managers and labels who believe in what we’re trying to accomplish.”
Lizzo, who has held the No. 1 song on the Billboard Hot 100 chart with her smash-hit “Truth Hurts,” is currently on tour supporting Cuz I Love You. She’s set to hit Denver, Hollywood, San Diego, Phoenix, Las Vegas, and San Francisco later this month. Visit Ticket Club to find tickets to see Lizzo on tour this year.
