Pickler, 'The Voice' winners sing at benefit for children's hospital

Hometown girl Kellie Pickler headlined a benefit concert in Charlotte to help raise money to give sick children a chance to share their own voices.

Pickler was joined for the first annual “Girls and Guitars” concert by “The Voice” winners Cassadee Pope and Danielle Bradbery. Also appearing were country music performers Katie Armiger, Rachel Farley and Maggie Rose. The concert was held at The Fillmore Charlotte at The N.C. Music Factory.

The concert benefits the Ryan Seacrest Foundation, which plans to put build a recording studio in Levine’s Children’s Hospital. “Seacrest Studios” will allow patients to do their own radio show and invite guest artists and celebrities in to join. Kids will get to act as DJ’s and plan some of the programming. It will be broadcast in the hospital.

All proceeds from the concert went to the foundation.
