Hunter Hayes will be setting out to out break the Flaming Lips Guinness World Records record that the group set for playing eight shows in 24 hours in 2012. CMT reported on March 17, 2014 that Hayes is set play 10 shows in 10 different cities within 24 hours to break the current record while helping to put an end to childhood hunger at the same time.
Hayes has teamed up with ConAgra Foods for the "Hunter Hayes’ 24 Hour Road Race to End Child Hunger" to benefit the Child Hunger Ends Here program. Hayes will also be auctioning off the Martin OM-42 he plays to raise additional money to add to the donations for the program.
Hayes said "I was shocked to learn that more than 1 in 5 children, including more 1 in 4 Latino children, in the U.S. may not know where their next meal is coming from." Hayes continued by saying "My new single “Invisible” speaks to anyone who has ever felt outctast, alone, or invisible, including the nearly 16 million children who are living in food insecure households in the U.S."
Hayes will start putting his voice to work to End Child Hunger beginning on May 9, 2014 by performing on “Good Morning America” at 8:00 a.m. then he will continue by putting on shows in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Pennsylvania and he will make two late night performance stops at 11:30 p.m. and 2:00 a.m. in New Jersey. The last performance is set to begin at 5:00 a.m. in Philadelphia on May 10, 2014.
