Several other country artists including Brett Eldredge, Darius Rucker, Lady A and Randy Owen with Alabama also participated as well.
The concert event, organized by St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, kicked off on Thursday (August 13) at 5PM ET on St. Jude's YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and TikTok channels. However, each artist's performances are still available to watch.
"Summertime often brings people together for a favorite pastime: music festivals," said Richard C. Shadyac, Jr., the president and CEO of ALASC, St. Jude's charity arm. "During this time of social distancing, the incredible ambassadors and celebrity friends of St. Jude are ensuring that our summer does not go by without one, and leveraging their talent to make a huge difference for the children of the world."
Additional performances and appearances featured were from Anthony Brown, Cash Cash, CeCe Winans, Drew Holcomb, For King and Country, Hot Chelle Rae, Jason Mraz, John McLaughlin, Jon Secada, Kirk Franklin, Luis Fonsi, Mali Music, MercyMe, Pepa (Sandra Denton), Seal, Skillet and Third Eye Blind.
In between musical performances, the event also included cooking content from some of America's most renowned chefs including Chef Lorena Garcia, Chef John Mitzewich, Chef Seamus Mullen and Chef Yisus.
"Giving through events like this when the world is so disrupted enables us to continue to ensure that families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food," Shadyac continued, adding, "because all a family should worry about is helping their child live."
