You know what’s great about Demi Lovato? She’s fearless and tonight…
…she’s putting on a fundraising concert in LA for mental health!
I really admire how public Demi was with her battles with addiction when she entered rehab back in 2010 for “physical and emotional issues”, specifically her battles with bulimia, cutting, and bipolar disorder.
Miss Lovato splashed on the music scene for the first time in June 2008 playing opposite Joe Jonas and the other JoBros in the Disney Channel Original Movie “Camp Rock”. I remember that movie so well! My best friend and I watched it and thought she had a really good voice 🙂
The pressure of growing up in front of the world really got under Demi’s skin and caused her to act out. Nobody can blame her really because we all know it’s extremely stressful being under the public eye and especially from a young age.
I met Demi back in 2008 at a Jonas Brothers concert! She was very excited and nervous when I told her that I thought she would be more famous than Miley Cyrus HAHA She said thank you and in my eyes she is more famous than Miley at this time. I think her collection of work is more respectable and genuine compared to Miss Cyrus.
The last time I saw Demi was on her Neon Lights concert tour in Nashville in March 2014! So wow yeah it’s been a year now, but as far as I could tell…she was in an incredible place and from what I’ve seen since in social media, she really is beaming with joy!
It’s wonderful to see her so happy and so in control of her personal life. She certainly deserves it for having inspired so many people of all ages!
She has contributed the success of her sobriety to her longtime boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama! He stayed by her side and helped her not return to rehab in December for her eating disorder!!
Demi is celebrating 3 years sober and she’s doing it in a big way tonight with her first annual fundraising concert in honor of mental health awareness!
The concert will take place at the Troubadour in Los Angeles, California. She’s got celebrity guests N’SYNC’s Lance Bass and Khloe Kardashian attending to name a few and Joe Jonas will be the special guest DJ of the night!
Christina Perri, Bea Miller and Sirah are confirmed to be performing!! I wish I were in California right about now! HAHA
Ticket sales proceeds are going to The Lovato Treatment Scholarship that was created to fund mental health treatment for those who couldn’t otherwise afford it. What a lovely idea and how kind of Demi to give back to those less fortunate with similar struggles that she has gone through and is still going through!
For more info about the scholarship go here: [castrecovery.com/lovatocholarship].
Tickets are available at: adventuresinwonderland.com/t/demi-lovato so if you’re in the LA area tonight…make sure to stop on in and support a wonderful cause!
Demi’s scholarship was started to honor her father who passed away in 2013 due to untreated mental health issues as well as addiction.
I’m sure it will be a wonderful night & congratulations Demi on your sobriety!
