Carrie Underwood, Diana Krall, John Mayer, and Stevie Wonder will join Tony Bennett at AARP Concert

HollywoodNews.com: AARP today announced that Carrie Underwood, Diana Krall, John Mayer and Stevie Wonder will join American icon Tony Bennett for a landmark concert event in Los Angeles to benefit Drive to End Hunger, a national effort by AARP and AARP Foundation to end hunger among older Americans. This musical spectacular will take place at the STAPLES Center on Saturday, September 24th and also celebrates the singer’s milestone 85th birthday. To date, Drive to End Hunger has organized food and cash donations to provide more than 2.7 million meals through local hunger relief organizations.

Billed as AARP Presents: TONY BENNETT LIVE IN CONCERT – Benefit for Drive to End Hunger, this one-night-only event will feature songs from Bennett’s anxiously awaited new album, Tony Bennett: Duets II, slated for a September 20th release.

“It is terrific to be working with AARP once again, especially for a cause like ending hunger among older Americans, which often does not get much attention. I know this event will make a big difference and I am thrilled to be a part of it and have some of my favorite musical performers join me for the concert,” said Bennett.

In celebration of Bennett’s birthday, AARP will also construct a 16-foot high electronic “cake” on the STAPLES Center plaza that will allow people to write birthday greetings to Bennett and will show videos of the singer. A vital musical artist at the peak of his career, Bennett is living proof that you can do anything you want—no matter your age—if you’re young at heart.
