The campaign aims to raise money and awareness to kids in the U.S. who face hunger every day of their lives.
Tori Kelly wrote a new song called “Fill A Heart” to support the campaign. It will be available to download from iTunes next month!
Amber Riley and Cody Simpson also recorded versions of the song, which will be available March 1.
“Everyone wants to get involved,” Braun told Billboard. “We are a country with the means to provide for all our citizens — 17 million [hungry] kids is an unacceptable number. We have a lot more work to do, but I love the idea that as many as 3 million meals are going to come out of this.”
Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards nominees have just been announced but we’re already buzzing to see who will win in each category! Josh Duhamel will host the show on March 23.
Have any guesses as to who will nab the orange blimps? Here are our predictions for the music categories!
Favorite Music Group
Hands down, our prediction for the winner of this award goes to pop phenomenon One Direction! In the last couple of years, the boys have taken the world by storm, and their fan base is full of loving and dedicated Directioners. We think they have the upper hand against contenders Big Time Rush, Bon Jovi, and Maroon 5.
Favorite Male Singer
Justin Bieber really deserves this title, especially after the release of his latest album, “Believe Acoustic,” which has blown away Beliebers and non-Beliebers alike. He’s proven his maturity and talent in the past few years, which we think will help him win against nominees Bruno Mars, Blake Shelton, and Usher
What a tough choice! The nominations went to Carly Rae Jepsen‘s “Call Me Maybe,” PSY‘s “Gangnam Style,” Taylor Swift’s “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” and One Direction’s “What Makes You Beautiful,” and all of those songs were personal favorites this year! Still, the song that will probably have the most lasting power, and that I think will take home the blimp, is “What Makes You Beautiful!”
Ever since our interview with Hunter Hayes, we’ve been obsessed! His talent and charisma have convinced us that he WILL grab the Best New Artist award this year!
Best Pop Solo Performance
There’s no way Carly Rae Jepsen’s preposterously catchy “Call Me Maybe” isn’t nabbing a Grammy this Sunday. We think it’ll take home the title of Best Pop Solo Performance!
Best Country Solo Performance
This second nomination for Hunter has led to a second prediction he’ll win! The piano powerhouse “Wanted” is a shoe-in for the title of Best Country Solo Performance!
Best Country Group Performance
Let the games begin! Taylor Swift & The Civil Wars’ haunting tune, “Safe and Sound“ was perfect in The Hunger Games, and we think it’s perfect in the category of Best Country Group Performance, too!
Best Country Album
We promise this is the last award we think Hunter Hayes will win this Grammy season! His self-titled album is undeniably beautiful, and the fact Hunter played 30 instruments on it impresses us beyond belief!
PSY, Rihanna, One Direction, Carly Rae Jepsen, and Bruno Mars were among the winners of this year’s NRJ Music Awards, which take place every January in Cannes, France!
The biggest winner of the night was PSY, bringing home the International Song of the Year and Music Video of the Year awards for his breakaway hit, “Gangnam Style!” He also received the NRJ award of honor!
Other familiar artists included Carly Rae Jepsen, who was awarded with International Breakthrough Of the Year, and Rihanna, who won the award for International Female Artist Of the Year!
Bruno Mars took home the title of International Male Artist of the Year, and my personal favorites, One Direction were dubbed as the International Group Of the Year!
Unhappy with the number of pop stars appearing on your TV screens? That number is about to get a bit larger with Carly Rae Jepsen and Cher Lloyd slated to make special guest appearances on two of your favorite shows!
Justin Bieber is back at the top after the 40th annual American Music Awards Sunday night!
J.B. took home the titles of Favorite Pop/Rock Male Artist, Artist Of the Year, and Favorite Pop/Rock album with “Believe!”
Nicki Minaj was also a big winner, with her album “Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded” winning Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop album and Nicki herself winning “Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Artist!”
There were big surprises at the AMAs, too. One Direction were nominated for New Artist of the Year, Favorite Pop/Rock Group, and Favorite Pop/Rock Album for “Up All Night,” but didn’t take home any awards.
Instead, following Justin’s win for Favorite Pop/Rock album, Carly Rae Jepsen won the New Artist of the Year award, and Maroon 5 were voted the Favorite Pop/Rock Group.
Taylor took home awards for Best Female act, Best Look, and Best Live act, while Justin received the titles of Best Male act, Best World Stage, and Best Pop act!
One Direction and Carly Rae Jepsen were also major contenders, with Harry, Liam, Louis, Niall and Zayn taking home the trophies for Best New Act and Biggest Fans, and Carly Rae winning big on Best Song for the catchy “Call Me Maybe” and Best PUSH artist!
Check out the rest of the winners below. Congrats to everyone involved!
