ONEREPUBLIC DONATES $100K TO NASHVILLE SHOOTING VICTIM – (08/22/2018)
The guys in OneRepublic are digging deep in their pockets to help a Nashville woman left paralyzed after being shot in a drive by.
The group tweeted, “The wife of one of our family within the 1R team just got shot through the back while walking her dogs. Please help us help this family recover & bring attention to the EPIDEMIC of gun violence in this country. Thank you.”
In an accompanying video, the group explains that the victim is the wife of a guy who’s worked closely with the band for years and was on stage with them in Los Angeles when the incident occurred in Nashville.
“This video isn’t about the epidemic of gun violence that exists in this country, which is unspeakable. This is about helping people who mean everything to us,” lead singer Ryan Tedder explains. He adds, “We never thought it would affect us and now it’s personal.”
They included a link to a Go Fund Me page for the victim, who is currently recovering in the hospital after her “life changing injuries” that required multiple surgeries.
The band has also donated $100,000 to the cause. Country star Dierks Bentley also chipped in $2,000. The Go Fund Me page has raised over $180,000 of its $200,000 goal so far.

Please note the following story contains language that could be considered offensive.
Ariana Grande performed at the American Express x Ariana Grande: The Sweetener Sessions on Monday night at Irving Plaza in New York City. She hit the stage just a few hours after performing “God Is A Woman” at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards at Radio City Music Hall. Madonna, Karlie Kloss and fiancé Pete Davidson were all in attendance at the intimate performance.
Before Grande stepped onto the small stage, she was introduced by Davidson. He first asked everybody to “shut the f*ck up” before introducing “the best person I know.” As he exited the stage and she came on, the two exchanged a quick kiss before she settled onto the small black stool placed center stage.
The intimate show marked the first of three Sweetener Sessions, organized by American Express, during which Grande performs tracks off her latest album in a stripped-down, super small setting. New York’s set marked the live debut of 11 Sweetener songs, and dates in Chicago and Los Angeles will follow.
