A tribute to Jack Johnson
Jack Johnson has been chosen to receive the 2010 Humanitarian Award at this year’s Billboard Touring Awards, taking place next month in New York. The Humanitarian Award recognizes the philanthropic efforts of a touring professional. Jack was chosen because of his involvement in a wide range of environmentally and socially conscious endeavors.
Jack's 2008 tour set a new precedent in the music industry by taking an eco-friendly approach to all aspects of production. In conjunction with that tour, he launched the All At Once campaign and gave 100% of his tour profits to local non-profit partners through his newly established Johnson Ohana Charitable Foundation.
Jack will once again donate 100% of his (2010) tour profits to charity.
If you ever have the chance to see Jack in concert ~ don't miss it! And make sure to visit his Village Green (he usually shows up an hour or so before the concert, as he did the other night.) Check out this short video I took on my iPhone an hour before his concert this week in Irvine's wonderful ampitheatre...(the Village Green is where some of the environmentally focused organizations he supports have a place in his tour.)
Jack Johnson ROCKS! He represents and is just too cool for words! We love what he does and how he does it! We give him the highest kuddos and our very first Tribute.
...and our bonus track ~ here's Jack playing Better Together :)
Have a great day :)
