Scotty McCreery has turned his Friday night show at New York City's Beacon Theatre into a benefit concert for Hurricane Sandy relief efforts. The date is a part of his Christmas with Scotty McCreery tour, but he wanted to shift the focus to help those affected by the storm.
"Being from North Carolina, I have seen firsthand what hurricanes can do," Scotty explains. "After seeing the devastation caused by Sandy, I wanted to figure out a way to help."
Proceeds from Scotty's concert will benefit World Vision's Hurricane Sandy relief funds. Scotty's fellow American Idol alum Pia Toscano will join him for this concert too.
