Yes, you read the subject line right: We're excited to announce Mumford &
Sons as our headliners for "Break the Silence" in Austin, TX!
You might recognize them from the Grammys when they played with Bob Dylan?
Or maybe from Coachella when they played to a crowd of 50,000? And you and
over a million others might have a copy of their album Sigh No More. (Can
you tell we’re excited?)
AND: David Archuleta is booked for our Nashville event. David was the
breakout performer from American Idol Season 7, and at 16, was one of
Idol’s youngest performers ever. Check out the bands below to see who's
playing in your city.
Now for the details:
"Break the Silence" is RSVP only, so if you haven't
done it yet, go to www.invisiblechildren.com/25 and start your fundraising
page. Once you raise $25, we'll send you your RSVP. But it's first come
first serve, so to make sure you get in, get there early.
But if you’re in Texas, remember this: Your event starts early. Check-in’s
at 4:30PM. We'll be breaking the silence at 6PM. That means, to get the full
25 hours of silence, you should start on Sunday at 5PM. Everyone else:
check-in’s at 6:30PM.
And again: www.invisiblechildren.com/25
We'll be breaking the silence with Mumford & Sons and other select bands
through our live video stream on the 25 website. Check back on Monday when
that goes live.
