Newcomer Drake White Is “Livin’ the Dream” by Giving the Dream


As Drake White hits the road later this month for the Black Out the Sun trek with Zac Brown Band, the newcomer is taking advantage of the chance to do some good deeds along the way. Playing off the title of his first top-40 hit, he’s partnering with Ford to launch the #LivintheDream by Giving the Dream campaign, teaming up with five different organizations to do five different community service projects in five cities on the tour.

“Even before I had a public voice, giving back to the community has always been very important to me,” Drake says. “Whether I’m helping one family in my hometown in Alabama raise money for their urgent needs or helping a community with cleanup efforts after a storm, now that I have this platform it is more important to me than ever.”

Here’s the rundown of where Drake will be stopping and who he’ll be working with along the way:

5/19 — Hartford, CT, Foodshare
6/4 — Los Angeles, CA, American Red Cross
7/2 — Detroit, MI, Habitat for Humanity
8/14 — Dallas, TX, Ford Driving Skills for Life
8/20 — Boston, MA, Greater Boston Food Bank
