About Music Gives to St. Jude Kids
Music Gives to St. Jude Kids mobilizes the music community – artists, fans, corporate partners and sponsors – to join us in the fight against childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases to raise funds and awareness for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®. St. Jude has a long history of support from the music industry since the hospital’s beginning in 1962 when our founder, Danny Thomas, called on entertainers such as Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Ray Charles and more to join his cause. Since then, numerous artists and musicians have visited the hospital in support of the St. Jude mission and Danny’s dream that no child should die in the dawn of life. Jason Thomas Gordon, grandson of hospital founder Danny Thomas and lead singer of the band Kingsize, created Music Gives to continue to bring St. Jude and music together to further his family’s legacy and make a difference in the lives of the kids of St. Jude.
