Music is one of the great elements of life, and there are few things more important then sharing it with our youth. What better way to raise money for the cause then throwing a sold out concert called “Rock The Schools” at NYC’s Gramercy Theatre, an event that was created in 2011 to support and promote music programs in New York State schools, and feature performances and appearances from “One Tree Hill’s” Bethany Joy Lenz, “American Pie’s” Thomas Ian Nicholas”, VH1’s Carrie Keagan, and Z100’s Trey Morgan to name a few. Due to the success of last year, “Rock The Schools” has decided to broaden their reach and will support The Fender Music Foundation with proceeds. Did I also mention that some of the proceeds of the concert also went to support the rebuilding after Hurricane Sandy?!?!
Here “The King Of Kamelot” sits down with three of the shows stars, Bethany Joy Lenz, Thomas Ian Nicholas, and Carrie Keagan to talk about their participation for “Rock The Schools”, the various exciting happenings in their careers, and soo much more! An enormous thank you to Alaina Bendi of BTF Concerts for organizing my participation and for an ultra successful event. Enjoy Kade Nation!!
Bethany Joy Lenz: Everyone will remember her as the awesome Haley James Scott for 9 years on the hit show “One Tree Hill”, but she is also a successful singer/songwriter and with new roles on hit shows like “Men At Work”, she is only gearing up for more success.
Carrie Keagan: She is the gorgeous and hilarious host of VH1’s Big Buzz Morning show, and has helped spearhead it to one of the best daytime talk shows in America. Carrie is one of America’s fastest rising TV personalities with appearances on CBS’ The Talk, and a brilliant web program called “No Good TV”.
Thomas Ian Nicholas: One of the nicest guys in Hollywood, who was one of the stars of our generation’s most defining franchise “American Pie”. As a successful actor with a new movie on the way with Michael Madsen, and singer/songwriter with The Thomas Ian Nicholas Band, he donated his personalized Chicago Cubs jersey from when he threw the first pitch out to the the “Rock The Schools” concert, and brought a killer performance to the crazy crowd.
