Propelled by electric performances from chart-topping musical artists Jason Derulo and Rachel Platten, the MI Charitable Foundation raised more than $440,000 during the MI Summer Concert on Aug. 15, 2020 – the most in the six-year history of the event.
The concert, moved online due to the COVID-19 pandemic, was a two-hour extravaganza that featured musical acts, celebrity cameos, and informational videos from the MI Charitable Foundation and its partners. Derulo, whose hits like “Whatcha Say” and “In My Head” have been thrilling fans for over a decade, capped the evening with an energetic eight-song set.
Platten sang her 2015 hit “Fight Song” during her performance, and the popular Harrisburg, Pa.-based band “Smooth Like Clyde” opened the evening with a series of popular covers.
“It was a terrific night from start to finish,” MI Windows CEO Matt DeSoto said. “Not only did we feature some phenomenal musical acts, but we were able to shine a light on many of the causes that our Charitable Foundation supports.”
