Jack Harlow has always been proud of his home state of Kentucky. Raised in Louisville, Harlow has always put forth efforts to praise his city and state whenever he has the opportunity. This week, when a large portion of Kentucky was struck hard by a harsh tornado, he dropped everything to support his community.
Harlow teamed up with KFC on Monday (Dec. 13), coming together to donate $250,000 to the American Red Cross to support the victims of the tornado. In the statement associated with this announcement, Jack felt honored to be the biggest artist from his state collaborating with the biggest business to come out of the state.
It is estimated that more than 70 people lost their lives due to the natural disaster, as the tornado traveled roughly 200 miles in distance causing destruction in its path.
For his set at Rolling Loud – Los Angeles on Saturday (Dec. 11), Jack dedicated his entire performance to his neighbors back home in Kentucky as an incredibly powerful gesture.
To also contribute to the healing of his community, particularly in his hometown Louisville, Jack announced a five-date tour that began on Dec. 15 at five different venues in the city where he will perform.
Much respect to Jack Harlow for stepping up during a time his city and state needing assistance the most. As he looks to continue his partnership with KFC, Harlow’s main goal is evidently to support the victims of this tragedy in Kentucky.
