100 Universal City Plaza, Universal City, CA
The Salvation Army and 97.1 Amp bring the sensational Alessia Cara to Universal CityWalk for Rock The Red Kettle. Canadian pop-R&B singer and songwriter Alessia Cara, a Def Jam artist, exploded onto the music scene in 2015 with the distinctive wallflower anthem "Here," which she co-wrote. Featuring a sample of Isaac Hayes' "Ike's Rap II." its streams numbered in the millions. "Here" eventually went on to crack the Top Five of Billboard's Hot 100 list, and rose to the number one position on both the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop and Pop charts. Her exposure increased that year when she was handpicked by Coldplay as tour opener for their Head Full of Dreams world tour.
The concert is free (no tickets, first come, first serve) but if you sign up to be a fundraiser (click here) you just may be in for the experience of a lifetime. It’s easy and more importantly you'll be helping The Salvation Army provide much needed assistance to families and kids in need this holiday season. The very first kettle was placed in 1891 in San Francisco to raise funds for a free Christmas dinner for the destitute and poverty-stricken.
