The 36th Annual American Heart Association Beach Ride and Kevin Barbaro Productions are proud to announce that four-time Grammy Nominee, and former American Country Music Award Winner, Jamie O’Neal will be performing at the AHA Beach Ride awards ceremony on Saturday, November 4, 2017.
The American Heart Association and Kevin Barbaro Productions (KBP) have partnered to help produce, and promote, the 36th Annual Beach Ride. This unique event is one of the AHA’s biggest, and most unique, events that brings thousands of participants, and their horses, to the Myrtle Beach area November 1-5, 2017.
Kevin Barbaro Productions will be providing the nightly entertainment for the event and producing the promotional and marketing material. KBP has been producing LIVE events for over 25-years from sporting events to fundraising to full-scale concert and festival production. Other charity partnerships, over the years, have included: The Leukemia Society, Susan G. Komen Foundation and Project I am.
Since the release of her debut album in 2000, Jamie O’Neal has been impacting country music with her soulful voice and the immense amount of passion behind every word she sings. O’Neal became a household name with her single, “There Is No Arizona,” which set her path to stardom on fire with multiple No. 1 hits and two Top-5 records as well as and many career accolades to follow, including four Grammy nominations, ACM top new artist and Billboard top new artist. Two of her four Grammy nominations came as a songwriter, for Best Country Song for “There Is No Arizona” and its chart-topping follow-up, “When I Think About Angels.”
In addition to headlining her own shows, O’Neal has toured with Reba McEntire, Kenny Chesney, Martina McBride, Alan Jackson and more. She has also landed songs on the soundtracks of Bridget Jones’ Diary and When We Were Soldiers, as well as on the ABC smash Desperate Housewives.
It is a measure of the respect she has earned that after Celine Dion was unable to sing “All By Myself” for Bridget Jones, the producers searched country music for its most powerful vocalist and chose O’Neal.
When Carrie Underwood won American Idol, a search for a top-flight duet partner led once again to O’Neal. O’Neal has appeared on numerous national television programs, including multiple appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Show with David Letterman, Entertainment Tonight, Access Hollywood and many others.
