Cleveland-based music star on a mission to help neighbors impacted by pandemic

CLEVELAND, OH — Republic Records recording artist LONDIN Thompson is hitting the stage for her first live performance in over a year for a virtual concert that will benefit Hunger Network. The concert will begin on Friday, February 12 at 8:00 p.m.

Joining LONDIN at the February 12 concert is fellow Clevelander and TikTok star, Jon Caryl. Together, they will appear at the acclaimed Maltz Performing Arts Center at Case Western Reserve University presented by Live Nation.

In April of 2020, LONDIN uploaded a clip of her original song, “Wish It Would Rain,” to TikTok. The one-minute clip of her heartfelt song took off, with over 3 million views and 10,000 comments and shares. Soon after, emails from record labels flooded her inbox, including LONDIN’s dream label: Republic Records. Within two weeks, the same label home to Drake, The Weeknd, Taylor Swift, Post Malone, Florence + the Machine, the Jonas Brothers, Pearl Jam and Ariana Grande signed LONDIN to a recording contract.

Along with sneak previews of unreleased material, LONDIN will be performing breakthrough tracks “Wish It Would Rain,” “By Heart,” and her newest single, “Don’t Prove Me Wrong,” which is coming to all Digital Streaming on February 12.

“Music has a way of uniting us, and kindness has a way of bringing us closer together,” says LONDIN. “We may be distanced, but our collective impact remains greater. Every $1 feeds 4 people. Please consider donating to Hunger Network to help reduce food insecurity for our fellow individuals and families.”

The concert will benefit Hunger Network, a local nonprofit that provides over 4 million meals to the community each year and has prevented more than 2 million pounds of fresh, healthy food from going to landfills.
