The world’s tallest red kettle is set to be installed in Cadillac Square in Detroit on Friday, November 19th, as part of the holidays returning to metro Detroit.

The Salvation Army’s red kettle stands 56 feet tall, 24 feet wide and includes 26,000 sparkling LED lights. It marks the unofficial start of The Salvation Army’s annual Red Kettle Christmas Campaign. They have a goal to raise $8.2 million to support metro Detroiters in need.

I love being a part of this campaign every year to raise money. Money raised will help fund the year-round efforts to provide more than just feeding and sheltering people. This year’s kick-off will rock Detroit and my friends in the band, “Live Band Karaoke Detroit,” will join me onstage for a couple of songs before we light up the Salvation Army’s Big Red Kettle. Look for us to take the stage in Campus Martius around 6 p.m. Then, join us Saturday at Royal Oak’s City Tavern for even more fun as YOU can join in and sing Karaoke with a LIVE band behind you. I’ll be your host and MC for the event to bring the holiday spirit to you.
