Stefani Donates Concert Proceeds To California Fire Victims
Singer Gwen Stefani has vowed to help her native California recover from the recent wildfires by donating the profits from a recent gig to the victims. The Sweet Escape hitmaker will give all proceeds from her gig in San Diego on Tuesday night (30Oct07) to those suffering in the aftermath of the fires which swept the state last week (ends26Oct07). And Stefani admits she almost cancelled her show after hearing thousands of residents had been evacuated. She says, "When I heard about the devastation of the fires, at first I felt I should cancel my show out of respect, but then it occurred to me there might be a more useful solution."
