Sincce 1990. A spectacular family holiday concert, Carols by Candlelight, will take place at the California Center for the Arts. Proceeds from this holiday country concert will go to Rady Children’s Hospital. The concert, beginning at 8:00 p.m. both nights, will feature country music stars singing their hits and favorite holiday songs. Headliners include Collin Raye, who has been nominated for 10 CMA and ACM Awards, 24 Top 10 Records, and 16 #1 Hits. Also, performing for one night only on Saturday, Dec. 14, will be Craig Campbell. Campbell has had two songs in the Top 15 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart, a regular on the Grand Ole Opry, and appeared on NBC’s Today Show. Other headliners include Bryan White, Jamie O’Neal, as well as up-and-comer Anna Vaus and concert founder, Steve Vaus (2010 Grammy winner). “We are so proud to share that we’ve raised well over $50,000 for Radys Children’s Hospital, in each of the last four years,” said Steve Vaus. “Carols is a gift of music to the community, but more important, a gift of hope for kids who will be spending the holidays in the hospital.” Following the on-stage performances, to close the evening, the audience and stars meet in the courtyard and sing “Silent Night” by candlelight. In addition to the live entertainment, the benefit also features a live auction offering autographed guitars and other items, as well as silent auction items and raffle prizes, donated by sponsoring organizations.
