|Atlanta, Georgia–(4/03/2013) – Ivan Kelley Announces Kindred Spirit Reward on Kickstarter and Benefit Concert.|
In a recent interview on Rising Star TV singer songwriter Ivan Kelley explained, “It is important to give back to the community, and already as a result of the notoriety I have received from my kickstarter Mary-Pat Hector, one of Usher Raymond’s New Look Foundation’s Youth Leaders, has asked me to perform at a benefit concert on June 29th in support of her “Think Twice” project. Mary-Pat is messaging young people to help curb gun violence. When you select the kindred spirit reward on my kickstarter page it helps me to help great community organizations.
Ivan also noted that; “Keke Palmer has also offered me the opportunity to help with her with the good work she does at Saving Our Daughters. Friends I have made throughout my career have encouraged me to support organizations that do great work within our communities”.
