TEGAN MARIE PRESENTS CHECK TO HURLEY CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL

12-YEAR-OLD
SINGER-SONGWRITER TEGAN MARIE PRESENTS CHECK TO HURLEY CHILDREN’S
HOSPITAL DURING THE CHILDREN’S MIRACLE NETWORK TELETHON ON SUNDAY (6/5)

The
Budding Young Star Donates All Proceeds From Single “Lucky Me” To
Support Kids Affected By The Water Crisis In Her Hometown Flint, MI

Tegan Marie To Make Debut At The 2016 CMA Music Festival 

NASHVILLE, TN (June 6, 2016) – 12-year-old singer-songwriter and viral country music sensation Tegan Marie has
shown a passion for philanthropy throughout her bright young career and
just yesterday (6/5) presented a check for $9,253.41 to Hurley
Children’s Hospital during the Children’s Miracle Network Telethon
broadcast live in her hometown of Flint, MI. The funds were raised in
part from the April 7th benefit concert in Flint, presented by NASH FM 95.1, and featuring Tegan alongside country music star Granger Smith. Additionally, she is donating all of the proceeds from her current single “Lucky Me” to the cause.
“One
of the biggest problems we are facing right now in Flint is that we
don’t know what the long term effects are going to be from the water
crisis, especially to the children,” said Tegan Marie. “As a Flint
native, I wanted to step up and do something for my community. I am so
grateful that Granger Smith joined forces with Sweety High, NASH and me
to help benefit the Hurley Children’s Hospital. This is just the
beginning of how I plan to help.”
 
Beyond
her Flint fundraising work, Tegan Marie will make her CMA Music
Festival debut on the Radio Disney Country stage this Saturday, June
11th from 1-2pm. Then she will embark on a busy summer of dates,
including opening slots for Hunter Hayes and multiple radio appearances.
The charismatic youngster continues to win hearts (and score online
views in the millions) with her pitch-perfect interpretations of hit
songs like Kelsea Ballerini’s “Love Me Like You Mean It” – which led to
her performing the track while being accompanied on guitar by Ballerini
herself. In between tour dates, she keeps busy writing and recording
songs that display a talent far beyond her young age, as demonstrated in
late 2015 with her holiday single “A Christmas Tree,” which was
featured on SiriusXM, Radio Disney, Pandora, and more.

Tegan Marie was born in Grand Blanc, Michigan, a suburb of Flint, in
2003. She picked up a guitar at 6, wrote love songs at 8, and was
playing national stages by 11. Her sweet, clean vocals and sensitive
interpretations have tween and teen girls across the nation clamoring
for more, and she was recently discovered by girls media company Sweety
High after she shared her videos on their site. In their words, she is
“your new obsession.”
