Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) July 8, 2010
iPOP! (International Presentation of Performers) conducted its second iPOP! Concert Series at the Venetian/Palazzo Hotel in Las Vegas on Tuesday, July 6, 2010. The concert was part of iPOP!'s efforts to raise money for Make-A-Wish Foundation® Southern Nevada Chapter. Talent from Nickelodeon's True Jackson VP and the Jonas Group were on hand to lend their support for the special evening that included a VIP silent auction cocktail party before the concert.
The iPOP! concert started with Nickelodeon's newest rising star, Ashley Argota performing. Ashley is a teen favorite with fans and plays Lulu Johnson opposite Keke Palmer on True Jackson VP. Also performing was the newest teen singing group from Texas, Savvy. This group of six talented young singers was discovered by Kevin Jonas of the Jonas Group and in their short time together the group has already started a television show entitled The Wannabees. Booboo Stewart who plays Seth Clearwater in Twilight's Eclipse made a special appearance at the iPOP! concert and hosted a special meet and greet with Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Southern Nevada family and friends. Booboo Stewart debuted in Eclipse and will have a larger role in the final installments of the Twilight Saga Series.
In addition to the great talent, the night was meaningful as iPOP! was able to grant a Make-A-Wish Foundation® of America wish for one of the foundation's children which included a helicopter ride and a singing performance at the iPOP! Concert Series at the Venetian/Palazzo.
