On January 20, 2012, Selena Gomez had a charity concert for UNICEF at the House of Blues on Sunset. Noah Guthrie was her opening act. He sang a few songs and he was great.
He has been on Ellen and Selena was so impressed by his talent she asked him to open for her!
Jake Whetter from Radio Disney introduced each act.
Selena had been tweeting that there would be special guest and surprise guests and most people guessed it would be her boyfriend Justin Bieber.
Twitter was filled with mentions that he would perform that night.
Big Time Rush was actually the surprise! The crowd which was mostly young girls with parents and teens loved them! They came out and sang If I ruled the World, Looking for a Boyfriend, the Music Sounds Better with You. As they left the stage they tried to touch fans hands at the edge of the stage. Carlos tried to wave at every fan who waved to him and gave back hand hearts.
Selena came out and thanked the crowd for coming out to her 2nd charity concert for UNICEF. In October of 2010, she had one at The Roxy in Hollywood.
She explained that she is an ambassador for UNICEF and that they provide food, water, and medicine in other countries.
She said there was no set list, no schedule. She took questions from the crowd and requests.
Someone asked if she had a New Years Resolution. She laughed and said, “No, cuz I can’t keep them!”
Someone asked about her fashion and where she shopped she said “everywhere and Forever 21″
She sang all her hits, Round and Round, Naturally, Who Says.
When she sang A Year Without Rain, she brought a little girl named Sasha up on stage. At her first concert for UNICEF, she brought Sasha on stage too. So Sasha was up singing the same song again at this concert! It was so cute! Selena loves kids and is so comfortable with them.
At one point, she meant to sing one song and started to sing Naturally instead. She giggled talked about it a little and started again!
She brought Big Time Rush out to sing a song with her. James brought out his husky puppy Fox and and said he was good and quiet and asked us to all say “Hi Fox” and we did. Carlos brought out an iPad and Selena teased him because she just had a piece of paper. They only practiced the song once. It was a cover of a Jason Mraz song called Won’t Give Up. The harmonies were beautiful. After the song the guys all kissed Selena on the cheeks and left.
At the end of the concert she talked about her mom. She said “She can’t be here tonight, but I know these songs will be on You Tube so mom if you are watching this, this is for you.”
And she sang The House that Built Me by Miranda Lambert.
Selena ALWAYS takes time in every concert to say how much her fans mean to her and that she wouldn’t be who she is without the live and support we all give her.
The last song she sang was Who Says and she said ” no matter who you are boy or girl, young or old, you get insecure and wonder if you are good enough.. This songs is for you..
The concert was great and some fans said Ashley Tisdale and Ashley Benson was there.
Stephen Glickman from Big Time Rush happened to be at an event near by and stopped at the end if the night
I posted tons of videos on YouTube
Here’s the one for her mom
