Benefit Concert with Kelly Clarkson

Pop superstar Kelly Clarkson will give her first hometown concert in more than a year, performing at a very special show to benefit the Opportunity Education Foundation at the Verizon Theatre at Grand Prairie, on March 1.

A Grammy-winning, multiplatinum singer and songwriter whose biggest hits are all bold anthems of empowerment, Clarkson is a natural supporter of Opportunity Education Foundation, which brings quality education to less advantaged children so they can improve their standard of living and work towards a brighter future. Since 2005, the Omaha-based Opportunity Education Foundation has supplied everything it takes, from learning materials and curricula to televisions and teachers' guides, to provide primary-school educations for some 500,000 kids in 11 countries in Africa, the Middle East, and Asia.

The foundation now plans to expand its mission to high-school education—and to bring its programs home to needy communities in the United States. As part of this wider mission, it’s developing the Opportunity Tablet, a low-cost tablet computer loaded with powerful digital lesson plans that can be given free of charge to hundreds of thousands of disadvantaged kids.

Proceeds from the "Benefit Concert with Kelly Clarkson for Opportunity Education" will be contributed to the Opportunity Education College Fund and used to benefit the philanthropic missions of Opportunity Education College Fund and Opportunity Education Foundation.
