(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) —
American Express will sponsor the second year of its "Jam Sessions," four nights of intimate concerts at the House of Blues Sunset Strip in West Hollywood, California, February 9-12 with Kanye West (February 9), Kid Rock (February 10), Alanis Morissette (February 11) and Black Eyed Peas and John Legend (February 12).
Building on the success of the 2004 "Jam Sessions," American Express is once again supporting music education by generating money and raising awareness about the importance of music education programs in public schools with net proceeds from "Jam Sessions" ticket sales being donated to the VH1 Save The Music Foundation.
"Music is one way for young people to express themselves, and it's a bridge for connecting with all kinds of people," said West. "I'm happy to be part of the American Express 'Jam Sessions' to benefit music education. With so many forces in the world driving people apart, it's important to me to help preserve something that brings people together."
Tickets are $75.00 per show plus any applicable service charges and fees. –Bob Grossweiner and Jane Cohen
