Jewel to play charity concert

Jewel has unveiled plans to stage a special concert in New Orleans, Louisiana to boost funds for a breast cancer charity.

The Who Will Save Your Soul hitmaker has been a longtime advocate for breast cancer patients and she recently vowed to donate all proceeds from her new song Flower to the Breast Reconstruction Awareness Fund of The Plastic Surgery Foundation, which helps survivors boost their self-confidence after going into remission.

Now Jewel is stepping up her fundraising efforts and will perform a charity gig on 29 October to benefit the cause.

In a post on Twitter.com, she writes, "Tickets for my 10/29 concert in NOLA (New Orleans, Louisiana) to benefit reconstruction awareness for breast cancer survivors r (sic) on sale!"
