Hootie & the Blowfish vocalist to perform at Ohio school

{{featured_button_text}}

CINCINNATI (AP) — The lead vocalist of Hootie & the Blowfish is set to perform at an Ohio high school in 2020.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports Darius Rucker is scheduled to perform at a charity concert at Elder High School in Cincinnati on May 7.

The event to be hosted by Elder graduate and Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph at the school’s football stadium will also feature the Bronson Arroyo Band. Event organizers say proceeds will go to a school fund to help complete a fitness center and provide scholarships to students in need. The concert also will benefit the charity Kids2Camp, which helps send children to sports camps.

Rudolph said he hopes the event will be the first of many big-name performances at the stadium.
