Together, they use their creativity and passion to raise funds and awareness for the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association.

About Jay Allen
Born in a small town in the American Plains, Jay Allen is passionate not only about his music, but is also deeply committed to raising money for Alzheimer’s, the disease that took his mother from him just over a year ago. Last year, in honor of World Alzheimer’s Day, Allen appeared on Chicago’s WGN “
Midday News” in an interview about his viral social media release, “Blank Stares.” Allen’s “Blank Stares” reached over 300 millions views on Facebook and caught the attention of Verge Records COO, Mickey Jack Cones. To date, Allen has helped raise over $35 million dollars for the Alzheimer’s Association through his involvement with the Rita Hayworth Gala, Brain Ball and numerous other events worldwide. Jay Allen is booked by the Kinkead Entertainment Agency.
