Emblem/Atlantic recording artist Rob Thomas has announced plans for a very special summer tour. The dates benefit the Sidewalk Angels Foundation, the non-profit organization founded by Thomas and his wife Marisol to work hand in hand with charities across America to address social issues for humans and animals alike.
The “Sidewalk Angels Foundation – Summer 2010 Tour” offers a rare and exciting opportunity to catch the multiple Grammy Award-winning superstar performing as a trio in more intimate settings than usual, playing a career-spanning set. “It's a chance for me, as a songwriter, to really highlight lyric and melody and to create different versions of songs that I've been playing for years,” says Thomas. “We’ll be doing my solo stuff, Matchbox Twenty songs, and covers. It will be a real "Storytellers" kind of vibe.”
Born out of a lyric in Thomas’ evocative holiday song “New York City Christmas,” the Sidewalk Angels Foundation has since raised nearly half a million dollars and helped organizations as diverse as Pets Alive, Blythedale Children’s Hospital, The Animal House in Jamaica and private individuals in need.
Firm in their belief that organizations deeply entrenched in their local communities are the ones best equipped to resolve those communities’ ails, the Thomases are dedicated to helping these grassroots organizations thrive. Sidewalk Angels Foundations selects recipients based on past program success, demonstrable use for future funds and resources, and a shared charitable philosophy. Another grassroots appeal: smaller organizations typically have lower overhead costs and thus funds have more of an impact and actually reach those in need.
