This may sound like a big and desparate request to most. I am from the town of Moose Lake Minnesota. We recently had a major flood and along with a large amouunt of homes our school received major damage from the flood. It is estimated to cost approximately $750,000.00- $1,000,000.00 to repair the damage alone. Thanks to great community support, and a large amount of that came from the students themselves, we managed to stop the water and sewage from destroying more. Even if we can raise the money to repair the school there will have to be cuts made. Usually when it comes to tightening a school districts belt the fine arts and industrial arts become the victims. Both out instrumentaland choral programs rank at the top when in competition. It would be a sad thing to loose these programs due to a natural disaster and lack of funding.
Our school is rural and in two buildings teach grades from pre-k to 12th grade. We average around 720 to 800 students each year. Through great financial management the school provides to keep a well rounded course offering even though the state has reduced or held back school funding.
What I am asking is a possible charity concert by SUGARLAND to raise as much of the needed money as possible. I understand your busy tour schedule and can only hope you will concider this request. When I found this blog and your support of education, then I had to take the chance and ask. I commend what you are doing already and those are some lucky kids(students)

I learned to play the flute when I was 8 or 9 years old.I understand Jennifer learned how to play the flute at a early age.It was a public school music program.The school had a Christmas show every year with all the students and all the parents.Public schools don't do Christmas shows anymore in California because someone might be offended.(too bad for everyone) They asked me if I would play my flute in the show.I said yes I would with out thinking it through. We rehearsed for about two weeks.Our song was "We Three Kings of Orient Are" A female music teacher would play the piano,I would play the flute and the school choir would sing.This show would have about 900 people in school auditorium.This was my first time playing in public in front of anyone.They had me stand by the piano with the teacher and told me to look at the music(which I could read)and that if I got nervous to look at the teacher.The Christmas show finally came and our song was in the middle of the program.Of course,this made me nervous waiting for our turn to perform.Now it was time for our song.I got my flute which we had tuned before the show and walked to the front of the auditorium.My knees were shaking but I don't think anybody could tell.I looked at the teacher and she smiled at me.This made me feel better.I heard my name over the sound system and everyone clapped.I was surprised at how loud it sounded.I took my place behind the music stand and the song started.I did not look at the people.I remember looking at the sheets of music in front of me and the teacher turning the music pages in front of her as the song went on.I played well and did not make any mistakes.When the song ended it was such a relief.I felt as if a great weight had been lifted off my shoulders.I looked at the teacher and she smiled at me and nodded up and down.The people began to clap and it was very loud.I smiled back at the teacher and then walked back to my seat with my head down looking at my feet while I was walking.I did not look at the people.....John

Jennifer is soo awwesome, i remember my last time being in choir, i was in 6th gared and i tried so hard to get a solo, but as horrible as i am i finally figured, that should be done when i am in my room getting ready for school, anyways, i always admired sugarland, because they are normal and arent publicity hogs like some of the other stars. well i have listened to them since 5th or 4th grade. but she should give my school district a little help, maybe replace my middle school band/ choir teacher, he only know how to play the trumpet and is annoying and like to ake jokes when things are not funny, he made a class where you could learn about musical history, i was lucky to be in it (not really) and then he made an advanced group, also being lucky enough to get (not) we learned about jazz and had to do a project on jazz musician and i chose Ella Fitzgerald, somehow got an A on that, i am sticking to sugarland, in elemantry school it was alot difficult because the music teacher was mother and only favored her friends and didnt care about anybody else really. But are music classes are cheap, in sixth grade we had to share folders that held music in it and they were either broken or damaged and siad naughty words on it form the stupid people. and we only have 3 to 5 music teachers, and the 2 choir teachers have to go to 2 elemantries and 1 middle school for work. anyways, will you come to the pnw (pacific northwest) and watch the arlington school district music program it would be wonderful! i love you guys, see you on july 18th counting down the days (13) make my first concert great, even i know you will haha!

I love this video. I can be in a bad mood or feeling sick, but when I watch this it always puts a smile on my face;) I am so happy that I could be a part of this by attending her benefit concert. I also hope to be able to be a part of opportunities like this in the future. Great cause, great kids, and such a phenomenal woman!

Jennifer! You are such an inspiration to me and everyone around! I cant believe how God could create such an amazing person! I hope one day when these kids get older the opportunity that they had to meet you and understand what an amazing thing you did for them, they are truly blessed. Thank you so much for all you do and just being your self, that right there takes alot. I wish the whole world could see what you do for kids and adults, but mostly your fans!! You are an incrediable machine!!
