Pink illuminated the stage no hungry childrenFirst in-person dinner event since pre-pandemic Thursday evening. As part of the festivities, Pink gave a candid performance to “the most empathetic crowd of people” alongside an acceptance speech as the organization’s national champion.
This honor was given to the pop singer and philanthropist by actor Jeff Bridges, spokesperson for No Kid Hungry, for his dedication and contribution to advancing No Kid Hungry’s national campaign to end childhood hunger in America.
“I like helping people. Growing up, I wanted to be a social worker and I feel like a mix of singer and social worker,” said Pink. Variation before its appearance. “I grew up without money. My mother was an emergency room nurse and my father was an insurance salesman. It was difficult at times, and I don’t know anyone in this world who doesn’t need help at one time or another. And if you can help, you should.
Pink’s work with No Kid Hungry dates back to 2013, when he first crossed paths with Billy Shore, founder and CEO of Share Our Strength, No Kid Hungry’s parent company.
“I learned about the organization through the document ‘A Place at the Table’ and called Billy, one of the most passionate, kind, thoughtful and determined men on the planet, and was amazed,” says Pink. “I remember saying, ‘You have to come and talk to me, I want to talk to you about this’. I had a new baby at the time and I remember thinking that I wanted to do everything I could to help. They are changing the laws and changing the way children access food.”
The organization supported Pink’s 2017 “Beautiful Trauma World Tour” with informative activations encouraging concert goers to participate by educating themselves about food insecurity or by making a donation.
“Our organization was built on the belief that everyone has a power to share,” Shore commented. “Alecia is a great example of this: sharing information about No Kid Hungry at tour stops, inspiring her network to get involved on social media, biking 100 miles to raise money and even performing for us tonight. Pink fans are in every city, town and country across the country. “It’s in the suburbs and so is the problem of hunger. It takes us all. We’re honored to call Alecia a friend and true champion of the business, and we’re proud to acknowledge her outstanding contribution to making No Kid Hungry a reality.”
The charity will once again appear at Pink’s at stops in North America two approaching walks. One of the two will join Pink, called the Summer Carnival Tour Brandi Carlile or Pat Benatar And Neil Giraldo For different stadium dates in 21 cities at venues like SoFi Stadium in L.A., Citi Field in New York, Wrigley Field in Chicago, and Fenway Park in Boston. Grouplove and KidCutUp will appear on all tour dates. The tour starts in Toronto on July 24 and ends in October, and regroups a week later as a “Trustfall” tour for 14 additional arena dates.
Pink it’s been said before Variation That the production team worked hard to find ways to make the most of their signature aerial performances at outdoor venues. But having the advantage of adorning both the arena and stadium stages gave it the best of both worlds.
“Unfortunately, you can’t do in an arena what you can do in a stadium, but you can’t do in a stadium what you can do in an arena,” he says. “As soon as it gets cold, we go inside and it shrinks. So it’s a completely different animal. Stadiums, especially in the summer in Europe, don’t get dark until late in the evening, so you can expect more of a festive mood. Once inside, you can do so much more with the lights and hang from the many more. It sounds silly, but after being in a stadium, arenas can feel really intimate.”
