Kelly Clarkson to perform at Verizon Theatre in support of Opportunity Education

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, Texas, 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, 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 middle-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.

Clarkson initially came to fame as the winner of the first “American Idol” competition. Over the past decade, she has sold more than 20 million albums and earned fans worldwide – along with two Grammy Awards, two American Music Awards, two MTV Music Awards, and 11 Billboard Music Awards – releasing such hits as “Miss Independent,” “Since U Been Gone,” “Walk Away,” “Never Again,” and most recently “Mr. Know It All,” the first single off her new album, “Stronger.”

Tickets for the concert on sale now. For details, visit the Opportunity Education Foundation.
