Cumulus Media and WPLJ 95.5 FM welcomed singer/songwriter Gavin DeGraw to Stage 17, Cumulus Media’s new live performance venue in New York, for "Karaoke for a Cause" last week.
DeGraw performed an acoustic set for an intimate group of 95.5 PLJ listeners and joined the station and Voss Foundation in raising awareness of Voss Foundation and VOSS Water’s annual #31Days to Make a Difference initiative.
Voss Foundation is dedicated to providing access to clean water, sanitation and hygiene as a means to enable community-driven development in Sub-Saharan Africa and raising awareness of the ongoing need in the region. Voss Foundation has made a difference in over 100,000’s people’s lives in seven countries. #31Days to Make A Difference runs from World Water Day (March 22) through Earth Day (April 22).

DeGraw was introduced by 95.5 PLJ on-air host John Foxx, and opened his performance with "She Sets The City On Fire.” DeGraw praised the new Stage 17 for looking "great," and later invited a lucky 95.5 PLJ listener on stage to sing a karaoke version of DeGraw’s single "Making Love With The Radio On" with Foxx, while DeGraw accompanied them on piano
