StarNight 2014 is this year’s premier black-tie event in Chattanooga, providing an opportunity to recognize and celebrate the progress and successes of children of all abilities.
Just over two months before this year’s August 16th event, headliner Colbie Caillat has unexpectedly released her new EP, Gypsy Heart – Side A, on iTunes with a compelling accompanying lyric video for the EP’s first single, “Try.” The new album immediately charted on iTunes Top 40 and the lyric video for “Try” has become a viral sensation with cameos from Miranda Lambert, Sheryl Crow, Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott and more.
To date, Caillat has been honored with Two Grammy Awards and sold over six million albums and ten million singles worldwide. Her breakthrough hit “Bubbly” remains “one of the best-selling digital tracks in history” and her multi-platinum debut COCO hit #5 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart upon release, while her sophomore set Breakthrough landed at #1. From 2011’s All of You, “Brighter Than The Sun” went platinum and enjoyed over twenty film and television placements, while seeing acclaim from People and NY Post. She’s also played sold out venues everywhere alongside everybody from John Mayer to Sheryl Crow. Beyond music, she’s an avowed spokesperson and supporter for the The Humane Society of the United States, the ASPCA, Farm Sanctuary, Surfrider Foundation, and Save The Music.
Through the years, StarNight has featured an impressive list of some of music’s most talented legendary and rising stars, including popular performers like Jim Nabors, Dinah Shore, Connie Francis and Tony Bennett, who graced the StarNight stage through the 60s to modern acts like Hootie and the Blowfish, LeAnn Rimes, Sugarland, Boyz II Men, Trisha Yearwood, Kenny Rogers and Wilson Phillips.
StarNight 2014 opens with a cocktail reception, beginning at 6 p.m., and a formal dinner followed by Colbie Caillat’s energetic performance. An electrifying after-party with dancing and music from one of Chattanooga’s hottest DJs will round out the night.
Guests can attend the full black-tie gala, including cocktail reception, dinner, dessert, musical performance and the after-party, for $250 per person. Eight-person tables start at $2,000. For tickets, visit http://www.siskin.org/starnight or call 423.648.1707.
