Description

Budweiser Superfest featuring Grammy® Award-winning R&B soul singer Jill Scott for a month-long, nationwide concert tour beginning July 26 through August 28. The Live Nation-Haymon Ventures, LLC promoted concert tour features Scott’s classic hits and songs from her just-released and highly anticipated fifth studio album The Light of the Sun, including the high charting radio single “So in Love.”

“Budweiser Superfest is back and better than ever with Jill Scott’s unique brand of urban soul,” said Bryan Hammonds, Budweiser Brand Manager. “This year builds on the successful 2010 revival of Superfest as Budweiser continues to bring great concerts to music fans in cities nationwide.”

Scott will be joined by special guests, Grammy® nominated R&B singer Anthony Hamilton and groove specialists Mint Condition with music provided by DJ Jazzy Jeff and hosted by Doug E. Fresh.

In the spirit of making a difference in local communities, Budweiser brewer Anheuser-Busch is celebrating the performances by donating $150,000 from its Foundation to UNCF (United Negro College Fund); presented as $10,000 scholarships in 15 of the 17 Superfest concert cities. The scholarships will be awarded to local students attending a UNCF school.

The Anheuser-Busch Foundation also supports UNCF’s national programs bringing its total UNCF contributions to $250,000 in 2011. A-B has supported UNCF for more than three decades, initially as the founding sponsor of the Lou Rawls Parade of Stars telethon.

Budweiser Superfest is one of the most celebrated Soul and R&B concert series of all-time. The revived Budweiser Superfest launched in 2010 with an 18-city tour. During its more than two decade run – 1979 through 1999 – the original Budweiser Superfest featured musical legends, such as Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, TLC, Parliament, Luther Vandross and many others.
