Radio Host, Country Singer 2-Step For Haiti

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A local radio show host and Country singer committed themselves to a 24 hour, two step dance marathon in an effort to raise money for orphans in Haiti.

Nashville radio show host Bobby Bones and County Music singer Laura Bell Bundy danced from 7 a.m. Wednesday until 7 a.m. Thursday in order to raise money for the charity, 30 Abes. The dance off also featured crew members from The Bobby Bones Show.

The free event was held at aVenue, located at 120 3rd Avenue South in downtown Nashville. Listeners and fans were encouraged to participate in the event.

Country singer Laura Bell Bundy said dancing was the easiest part of the 24 hour event.

"Its kind of like shooting your music video- you listen to it over and over and over again," said Bundy. "I don't know how I'm going to feel when the noise goes away, and it's still going in your head."

30 Abes has been a local campaign to raise money to buy food for orphans in Haiti. It has been endorsed by such celebrities as Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood.

30 Abes represented 30 cents, which was the cost to feed one child in Haiti. Organizers of the event hoped to provide 500 thousand meals.

More information on how to donate could be found on the 30 Abes website.
