O.A.R. and Phillip Phillips to partner with Habitat in Monmouth

Rock band O.A.R. and singer Phillip Phillips will partner with Habitat for Humanity in Monmouth County during their 2014 joint summer tour to raise funds to help low-income families in need of affordable housing.

credit_suisse.jpgThe tour will host an online auction for a VIP concert experience to the Holmdel concert, which takes place on July 12 at PNC Bank Arts Center, with proceeds from the auction going to Habitat for Humanity in Monmouth County. The VIP experience includes two premium tickets to the concert and an opportunity to meet with the artists.

“Home means everything to us. It’s our DNA. It’s who we are,” said Marc Roberge of O.A.R.  “We had the chance to meet amazing people building Habitat for Humanity homes in LA, pouring love and sweat into the foundation, taking pride in the work they were doing, alongside the Habitat partner family, and it was an honor to be a part of that. Words can’t properly describe the positive swell that brought to our hearts. We hope the donation from our tour will help families, like the ones we met, achieve their dreams of homeownership.”

The tour will also donate 10 concert tickets to Habitat for Humanity in Monmouth County, for use by local Habitat volunteers, staff and partner families, who will also have the opportunity to meet the artists.

Habitat for Humanity in Monmouth County will be on site during the concert to raise awareness about the affordable housing programs available within the community, as well as opportunities to volunteer or support their local work.

“My team has personally seen the incredible impact Habitat for Humanity can have on lives. We have worked on builds from the Musician's Village rebuild in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina to local neighborhoods in my community,” said Phillip Phillips. “Habitat's roots stem from my home state of Georgia but their reach is now worldwide. I am honored to partner with Habitat for Humanity in carrying out their mission - to build homes, communities, and hope."

“We are so incredibly grateful to both O.A.R. and Phillip Phillips for their support of not only Habitat’s mission across the country, but also for our affiliate here in Monmouth County,” commented Ray Gabler, Executive Director for Habitat for Humanity in Monmouth County. “By partnering with our affiliate, they have enabled us to continue to work to build affordable housing in our community and help families to rebuild in the wake of Superstorm Sandy,” he added.

King was the follow-up to the band’s 2008 release, All Sides, which contains the Platinum hit radio single “Shattered.” The band will be releasing their next studio album, “ The Rockville LP”, June 10, featuring the hit single, “Peace”, as well as touring the United States with Phillip Phillips. 

About Phillip Phillips

One of the biggest singles of 2012, the quadruple-platinum “Home” announced Phillip Phillips as a singer/guitarist of both rare authenticity and massive pop appeal. Centering on the American Idol season 11 winner’s rich, raspy vocals and masterful guitar skills, “Home” served as the lead single from The World from the Side of the Moon - a platinum plus-selling album that debuted #4 on the Billboard Top 200 Album chart and #1 on the Billboard Rock Album chart upon its November 2012 release. Phillips’s widely acclaimed debut also features the platinum single “Gone, Gone, Gone” and the Phillips’ penned “Where We Came From,” as well as a host of numbers that flaunt the 23-year-old Georgia native’s songwriting chops. Phillips released his sophomore album Behind The Light last month as new single “Raging Fire” continues to climb the charts.
