Allen Stone: Neo-Soul Singer Plays Exclusive 'Live From T5' Show on Thursday, July 26th at Jet Blue's Terminal 5 at JFK
JetBlue Airways is hosting an exclusive live performance by soul-singing sensation Allen Stone on Thursday, July 26, 2012 at 6 p.m. ET. Following a sold out performance in New York the night before, the musically inclined airline is once again providing a surprise performance that is sure to delight. JetBlue’s Live From T5 concert will be held post-security at Terminal 5 (T5) at John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) in New York and will be available to ticketed customers and contest winners as part of the airline’s ongoing focus on enhancing the customer experience.

The music-loving airline has partnered with and WFUV 90.7 FM for a local contest. Beginning July 17, fans can enter for a chance to win passes (winner plus a guest) to this exclusive, intimate concert by Allen Stone.

"Allen Stone’s powerhouse sound has brought him to the front row in the music industry,” said JetBlue Brand Coordinator Albert Hsieh. ”His energy, unwavering attitude and individuality are similar to JetBlue, a brand that truly values independence. JetBlue loves to break new ground and introduce quality artists to our customers. Those traveling through our terminal at JFK’s T5 will get a real treat as Allen Stone performs following his sold out show at the famed Bowery Ballroom the night before.

Allen Stone has been described as a pitch-perfect powerhouse and his socially conscious music has been likened to that of bona fide soul legends such as Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye and Donny Hathaway. However, this 25-year-old singer-songwriter from the tiny town of Chewelah, Washington simply classifies himself as “a hippie with soul.” Since the digital release of his self-titled album via his own stickystones label in October 2011, his shows have sold out from coast to coast, with performances on the ESPYs Countdown Show and Late Show with David Letterman. He will also be making his first major festival appearances at Outside Lands and the Life is good Festival and touring with Dave Matthews Band, Al Green and The Avett Brothers this summer. Stone’s album has appeared in the Top 10 of Billboard’s Heatseekers chart and the Top 5 of iTunes’ R&B/Soul charts. Stone’s first national television appearance – on Conan – came after the music booker saw a YouTube video of Allen performing “Unaware” in his mother’s living room. Esquire, CNN and Billboard named Stone as an artist to watch – all before he had the support of a record label.
