Each year the Songs For Kids Foundation sends musicians to children's hospitals and 20 special needs camps all over the state. The money raised by 500 Songs for Kids plays a big part in funding these activities. The theme this year is simple: The 500 most beautiful songs of all time. The complete list of acts on the schedule is still coming together, but should be announced very soon. Songs, dates, order, and time are all subject to change, or course, and some songs will be played out of order.
UPDATE: Sonia Leigh has been added to the lineup for Monday, May 7, and Janelle Monáe has been added to the lineup for Fri., May 11. The folks at 500 Songs For Kids aren't saying what songs they're gonna sing, but if you can guess the songs they're doing, there's a pair of tickets with your name on them. ... That's a tough one.
Be the first person to leave the correct song titles for each artist in the comments section of this post and the tickets are yours.
