Congratulations to Hunter Hayes! He broke the Guinness Book world record, previously held by the Flaming Lips, by performing the most concerts in different cities within a 24-hour period. He announced his attempt to break the world record earlier this year, partnering with ConAgra and their Child Hunger Ends Here campaign to raise awareness about childhood hunger.
“I cannot believe how much fun this whole day has been and that it’s only been a day!” Hunter said. “Ten shows in 24 hours with the best fans in the world and a great cause with Child Hunger Ends Here. I’m so proud to get to work with them and all the sponsors. Thank you to all the fans for not only making history with us but also making this whole thing absolutely awesome!”
Hunter kicked off his 24-Hour Road Race to End Child Hunger on May 9 with a performance on Good Morning America in New York City. He then traveled to Boston and Worcester, Mass., Providence, R.I., New London, New Haven and Stamford, Conn., and South Orange and Asbury Park, N.J., before wrapping up in Philadelphia, Pa.
Hunter will continue to raise awareness about childhood hunger while touring the country on his We’re Not Invisible Tour throughout the year. His latest album, Storyline, is available now.
