The Inspire Concert featuring Cole Vosbury of NBC's 'The Voice'

Shreveport native and NBC’s The Voice semifinalist Cole Vosbury will return to northwest Louisiana on Friday, November 17 to headline The Inspire Concert benefiting Shriners Hospitals for Children — Shreveport. The fundraising event, taking place at 6 p.m. at the Los Paloma Sporting and Events Center in Benton, Louisiana, pairs the soulful singer-songwriter with opening act The Offerings in support of recreational patient programs at the world’s first Shriners Hospital.

Conceived as a senior project by Haughton High School student Jacob Rhymes, The Inspire Concert is intended to provide a family-friendly concert experience while benefiting an area nonprofit organization. Rhymes notes the storied history and specialized services of Shriners Hospitals for Children — Shreveport in describing its selection as charitable organization of choice.

“Shriners Hospitals for Children has been supporting kids with orthopaedic problems from across our area for over 95 years”, Rhymes said. “I pleased to be able to offer my support to their mission, and am grateful to Cole for embracing this project and helping bring it to fruition.”

As a contestant on season 5 of The Voice in 2013, Vosbury was a member of both CeeLo Green and Blake Shelton’s teams. After making it to the season’s semifinals, Vosbury relocated to Nashville, Tennessee, and maintains an active music career, heading the Cole Vosbury Trio and serving as half of the melodic, acoustic duo The Lovers.

The Inspire Concert open to all ages, and as such no alcohol will be sold at the venue. Admission is $15 at the door. For more information or to reserve tickets, contact Rhymes at  Special thanks to sponsors PetroTech Solutions, RBM LLP Certified Accountants, The Lilley Family and Topps Trailers.
