When Hurricane Irma hit, Kenny Chesney created the Love for Love City Fund in order to help victims of the storm. The St. John School Of The Arts honored him with its Hero Award for his donations.
St. John School of the Arts is located in the Virgin Islands and is a performing arts school. The institution presents the Sis Frank Hero Award annually in memory of the school’s founder.
Chesney could not be a better recipient of the award. His Love for Love City Fund helped fly medical supplies to the island and airlifted over 1,000 people and pets to the U.S. According to The St. Thomas Source, he also donated “several truckloads of keyboards, guitars and sound equipment to the School of the Arts to replace instruments damaged by the storm.”
The school members presented the award to Chesney when he invited students and faculty to his June 9 concert in Philadelphia. It was a pleasant surprise!
“This is so beautiful and so unexpected,” said he said. “I’m so excited you are here. The silver lining is how much [the storm] brought so many people together. It’s a musical family, it’s a beautiful family.”
