Abaco Relief Benefit Concert featuring
On September 1, 2019, Hurricane Dorian, a Category 5 hurricane, struck the Abaco Islands and continued through the rest of the Bahamas with unrelenting damage for more than 24 hours. It is regarded as the worst natural disaster in the country’s history, and has left thousands of Bahamian citizens without access to essential needs such as water, food, shelter and healthcare.
Discovery Land Company Foundation, a charitable organization focused on improving the lives of children, launched its Abaco Relief program to directly assist with the disaster relief needs of Bahamian citizens. The Foundation is currently providing support and developing grants for the needs and safety of the people impacted by Dorian, and will participate in the ongoing recovery and reconstruction of Bahamian communities.
As part of those efforts, Discovery Land Company Foundation is proud to announce the Abaco Relief Benefit Concert, featuring George Strait. Proceeds from the evening will go directly to Abaco Relief.
George Strait is the unambiguous King of Country Music, having sold more than 68.5 million records and counting. With 33 different platinum or multi-platinum albums, he’s earned the second most certifications of any artist in any genre, following only Elvis Presley. With a total of 60, George Strait has more No. 1 songs than any other artist in history (including Elvis) and is also the only artist in the history of music (all genres) to have a top ten hit every year for thirty years. Strait was only the second artist at the time (after Eddy Arnold in 1966) to be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame (2006) while still actively recording and producing chart-topping hits and albums. Throughout his career, George Strait has received more than 60 major entertainment industry awards and countless nominations, including Billboard’s Legend of Live award (July 2013), CMA Album of the Year (5x) and CMA Entertainer of the Year (3x).
