Event Details

Are you ready to join forces with Kids Helping Kids Sacramento the #1 student-run non-profit in the world and soulful singer-songwriter duo, JOHNNYSWIM to support families who are battling Pediatric Cancer.

Amanda Sudano and Abner Ramirez met in Nashville, started writing songs together, fell in love and formed their band JOHNNYSWIM in 2005. Sudano is the daughter of the late disco and R&B Icon Donna Summer, and even spent summers as a backing vocalist on tour. But that’s where the comparisons end. Both inherited strong musical influences from their parents and both were driven by a desire to chart their own path in music. Some of their recognizable successes include a television show dedicated to them on The Magnolia Network, performing along legendary rock musician Daryl Hall, as well as having their song “Home” be featured on HGTV’s hit series “Fixer Upper” to name a few. Over the last 18 years, the duo sold out tour dates on multiple continents, performed on both the Today and Tonight Show’s, earned acclaim from NPR to Rolling Stone, and have gathered over 500,000 monthly Spotify streams.

Jon McLaughlin is a pop-rock singer and songwriter and accomplished pianist who has captivated audiences over two decades with his soulful voice and heartfelt lyrics. Rising to prominence with his 2007 debut album “Indiana” and his hit single “Beautiful Disaster,” which sold over 420,000 digital copies, he showcases his versatility in genres ranging from pop and rock to jazz across multiple albums. McLaughlin’s performance of “So Close” in the 2007 Disney movie Enchanted earned him an Oscar nomination and an invitation to perform at the 80th Academy Awards.

With the heart of giving back, both Kids Helping Kids and JOHNNYSWIM have joined together for the 10th Annual Signature Benefit Gala to come alongside families to battle pediatric cancer. Join them in hopes of making an everlasting impact.
