Earlier this month, 97.1 AMP RADIO, along with The Salvation Army, hosted the 7th Annual Rock the Red Kettle ConcertÂ at 5 Towers Universal CityWalk on Sunday, December 6th in Los Angeles.
The event kicked off with the Rock the Red Kettle band putting us in the Christmas spirit by performing an amazing cover of Mariah Carey‘s “All I Want For Christmas Is You.” Following the band,Â DJ BabyyuÂ pumped up the crowd with his awesome remixes, making everyone want to dance before headlinerÂ Alessia CaraÂ took the stage.Â
CaraÂ sang her entire debut albumÂ Know It AllÂ from start to finish, including our personal favorite “I’m Yours.”Â Throughout her set, the 20 year old took time to introduce each song she was about to sing and gave some inspiring advice along with it. One of our favorite words of wisdom from the singer was before she sang her new single “Seventeen.”
â€œLive in the present. Donâ€™t think too far ahead. Donâ€™t try to rush your life because it is awesome! We’re really lucky to be living it and to be alive!â€
This is something that everyoneÂ needs to be reminded of; don’t focus too much on the future and just enjoy the present.Â Last but certainly not least,Â AlessiaÂ closed the show with her smash hit and debut single “Here,” surprising us with a new verse.Â
