CNN Entertainment | John Oates revives music festival to help hunger crisis

(CNN)Rock and Roll Hall of Famer John Oates and his wife Aimee are reviving Oates’ Song Fest 7908 to fundraise for Feeding America, the nation’s largest hunger-relief organization.

The economic fallout of the Covid-19 pandemic is driving up food insecurity across America. Feeding America estimates that one in six Americans could face food insecurity as a result of the pandemic.
“The loss of jobs from this pandemic has had a far-reaching impact on our economy, resulting in millions of American families who can no longer put a meal on the table,” John Oates told CNN. “Aimee and I firmly believe that in our country like ours, no one should go without food.”
The virtual star-studded fundraiser will stream on Nugs.tv on March 20 at 8 p.m. ET. Oates and YouTube sensation Saxsquatch will host the event.
