Jack Harlow + KFC Donate $250,000 To Kentucky Tornado Victims

On Monday (12.13) it was announced that the Grammy-nominated artist and Louisville, Kentucky native, Jack Harlow, has teamed up with KFC and its parent company Yum! Brands to donate $250,000 to the American Red Cross in support of those impacted by the deadly tornado that reportedly killed at least 74 victims in the state’s western region on Saturday.

In a statement about the charitable collaboration, the superstar rapper said: “Growing up, I always dreamed of being that guy who would put Kentucky on the map in the music scene,” “But to team up with an iconic national staple like KFC, the biggest brand to come out of Kentucky, is truly an honor. I’m looking forward to all the amazing things we’re about to do together.”

On Tuesday (12.14) Harlow will launch his KFC partnership with a No Place Like Home concert series at the Louisville Palace Theatre and will play additional shows at the venue on December 15, 17 and 18. Tickets are available for purchase online.

During the concerts select fans can enjoy a KFC Chicken Sandwich in custom Harlow packaging from a KFC food truck and attendees at two of the No Place Like Home shows will also be entertained by a giant KFC Bucket Boombox playing Harlow’s chart-topping tracks outside the venue.

Harlow’ yearlong collaboration with the poultry franchise will include brand campaigns, social media activations, new menu item launches and exclusive experiences.
