Radio One tapped into their network of gospel connects–Yolanda Adams, Tom Joyner — on the radio and stage to raise much needed funds for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.

The $1.4 million gospel leaders are rallying to raise through the annual Radio Cares for St, Jude Kids fundraiser will be used to treat sickle cell disease, cancer and other illnesses kids shouldn’t have, but unfortunately do.

The national event attracted “NewsOne Now” Roland Martin, Michelle Williams, Tichina Arnold, comedienne Luenell and “Real Housewives of Atlanta” Claudia Jordan. They used their star power to work the phones and persuade callers to donate $20 to be a St. Jude Partner in Hope.

Erica Campbell, one half of Gospel group Mary Mary, also pitched in to help.

It’s events like these that help the hospital pay for travel, housing, food and treatment for families.

Remember St. Jude isn’t like other children’s hospitals. They turn no one away. Even if they’re broke or have no health coverage, an ill child will still receive treatment. And parents don’t have to sweat bullets when the hospital bill comes in the mail beeeccaaaauuuusssseee there is none. See why I think their awesome?
