The Plaza at Tysons Corner Center was filled with music performed by former American Idol finalist Danny Gokey and hosted by WGTS 91.9.
The concert, part of the Summer Concert series at the mall, was attended by over 5,000 WGTS 91.9 listeners who enjoyed it along with meeting and shaking hands with morning show host Jerry Woods and a live broadcast by afternoon hosts Johnny and Stacey Stone.
Woods explains, “We love the concert partnership with Tysons Corner Center. It’s allowing us to do something fun to engage our audience and to reach a whole new group of people in a compelling way.”
WGTS 91.9, a top 10 station in the Washington, D.C., market, is also hosting Britt Nicole at the Plaza at Tysons Corner Center on Aug. 11, 2017, to celebrate the station’s 60th anniversary. “These concerts are part of a larger strategy to bring our listeners together to strengthen their faith and show them how much we appreciate them listening,” says WGTS 91.9 General Manager Kevin Krueger. “And our partnership with Tyson’s Corner Center is a crucial part of our 91 Days of Summer campaigns for families in the district.”

A full capacity crowd joined Star 99.1 for a free concert featuring Centricity Artists the JJ Weeks Band on Monday night at Church at the Gateway on Staten Island. On the same night that Yankee Slugger Aaron Judge was establishing himself as the home run king of major league baseball, the JJ Weeks Band "hit it out of the park!" according to LuAnn Schafer, Star 99.1 Promotions Manager.
More than 850 tickets were downloaded for admission to the free concert to benefit Star 99.1's current Foster Care Pack campaign to provide backpacks of blessings for kids in NJ's foster care program. Schafer added "These kids are taken out of dire circumstances for their own safety. Most times all they can do is grab some personal belongings and toss them in a garbage bag. These backpack Care Packs being donated by Star 99.1 listeners at van stops throughout the tri-state area will be loaded with the things they need to make the transition as smooth as possible."
Van stops are scheduled at key locations in the Star listening area through August 26 and will then be delivered to Foster and Adoptive Family Services (FAFS) for distribution.
