Chelsea Staub gathered her best pals — actors and musicians — for one of the best benefit shows ever — Harmonies For Haiti — at the House of Blues late last week in Los Angeles.
Musicians Benton Paul, Tyler Hilton, Drake Bell, Eye Alaska, The Summer Set, Kristy Frank, The Record Life, Tommy and the High Pilots, Debate Team, Frank & Derol, The Scholars, Jessarae and Julia Lucafo all gathered to play music to benefit the American Red Cross’ Haiti relief.
The 21-year-old actress caught up with JJJ on the front porch and shared her inspiration for the benefit show, “I was at home in my sweatpants and watching the news thinking, ‘This is so sad.’ It was ripping me up and I got on my phone and started text messaging. I’ve been blessed to know these actors and musicians who are my friends and thought, ‘We can do something with this.’”
Chelsea continued, “I got in contact with The Summer Set and Eye Alaska first and asked them if they wanted to put on a small benefit show and they said yes. We were counting on a small show, like 100 people. But the momentum grew and grew, we went from two bands to 14. I did all of this from my bedroom. It’s been a huge undertaking but I’m just so humbled by the people who were there and I think this show actually shows a lot of true colors. It’s amazing and it’s for a great cause.”
Chelsea, thank you for putting on a great show! JJJ loved every minute.
