Well a big Happy Birthday going out to Lady Antebellum's Charles Kelley who turned 31 today.
He was born in 1981. I don't know why it is that I'm always so shocked to hear that someone successful was born in the '80s, but it still makes me pause and take notice and seems so utterly bizarre to me.
I'm weird that way.
On the 20th of this month, Lady A will be performing at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium to help raise funds for a new home for the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital, one of the country's prominent medical facilities for children. To stick with the theme of helping children, the trio set up a fundraising page in Charles' name to raise money for St. Jude Children's Hospital in honor of his birthday.
On the band's Facebook page, Charles sent out a special thank you to the fans along with the adorable and kind of sad (this is apparently where K-Mart carousels go to die) picture above:
So far, the fundraising page has raised $560. Fans who would like to donate can visit Crowdrise.com/stjudecharleskelley to pledge a few bucks.
