Sara Evans holds online auction for Red Cross in wake of tornados

Wednesday, February 13, 2008 – Due to the tornadoes and severe weather that caused significant damage to communities in Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Mississippi and Tennessee, Sara Evans, is auctioning off memorabilia through MissionFish, the exclusive charity solution provider for eBay Giving Works.

Items to be auctioned off include an autographed top and dress that Evans wore in her video "As If." Both items come with a copy of the video and an autographed "Greatest Hits" CD which contains the hit "As If."

All proceeds from the auction will benefit the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund, which helps the victims of thousands of disasters across the country each year, disasters like the southern tornadoes. The online auction is available to the public now through Tuesday, Feb. 19 at 5:30 p.m. central and can be accessed by going to www.saraevans.com.

Evans is a member of the celebrity cabinet of the Red Cross.

The bad weather led to 59 deaths.

Evans' birthday was on Feb. 5, the same day that the tornadoes stuck. In lieu of gifts, Evans' fans have been asked to donate to her favorite charities. In support of The American Red Cross fans across the country donated blood or recruited blood donors. In response to the Middle Tennessee tornadoes, Evans also donated her time by recording public service advertisements to encourage donations via www.redcross.org. Additionally, she taped a specific message for tornado preparedness for future disasters.

"I am so honored to be a part of the National Celebrity Cabinet. The American Red Cross sustains victims during disasters and has supported countless families through the recent tornados that devastated Tennessee and surrounding states. We are still seeing the devastation nightly on the news, and I encourage everyone to support their efforts not just now, but all year long. You never know when a disaster will affect you or someone you love," Evans said.

"Marquee Sign," off Sara Evans' "Word" album begins with the country star announcing, "I wish you were a pack of cigarettes/'Cause you would have come with a warning." Cigarettes, like the tequila she sings about later, are clearly bad for you. Unfortunately, the man in this song didn't come labeled with a skull and cross bones. The album from whence ...
CD review - At Christmas Sara Evans is straight-up one of the best singers in country music, and when she performs "Go Tell It On The Mountain" backed by a supportive choir on her new holiday offering, "At Christmas," the girl is squarely in her element. She has the kind of strong voice that gives this lyric the spiritual declarative quality it requires. And yet, she can switch to the acoustic guitar-backed "Oh Come All Ye Faithful" and sing ever so prettily and quietly. ...
