The Band Perry
Eighteen-thousand kids brought the energy to St. Paul’s Xcel Energy Center Wednesday for We Day. Those who earned their way in through service saw celebs like Magic Johnson, rocked out with today’s hottest musicians and heard inspirational stories from speakers like J.R. Martinez, a soldier injured in Iraq who turned tragedy into strength. “I am where I am because of the support that I received from my community, and that empowered me not to hide behind a curtain, but instead show the world my scars and be proud of them,” Martinez said.
The stars aren’t usually up for 7 a.m. red carpets, but luckily the crowd had no problem bringing up their energy! A group of students were chanting and cheering right from the very beginning. The Band Perry put it perfectly: “Coffee and loud kids, that’s all you need in the morning.”
Kids will be trick or treating for more than just candy on Halloween this week. Many will be collecting non-perishable food items for “We Scare Hunger” — a drive to help fill food banks sponsored by Free the Children. But some adults are getting a head start. The doctor’s office can be a scary place, but Entira Family Clinics are helping to scare away hunger.
We’re just three weeks away from the second annual “We Day” concert at the Xcel Energy Center. It’s a reward for teenagers who spend time doing volunteer work in the community. Tickets aren’t for sale — you have to earn them through work on a community service project. Carly Rae Jepsen and the Jonas Brothers performed at Minnesota’s first We Day last year.
We Day Minnesota announced the lineup of inspirational speakers and performers that will be attending this year’s event Thursday.
“Fashion Rocks” is back with some of the most recognizable names in fashion and music.
