North Dakotan James Otto Pitches In With Flood Relief

A former resident of North Dakota, country artist James Otto is deeply saddened by the tragic loss the town of Minot, ND is experiencing due to the record flooding this week.

In an effort to help those suffering from the devastation, James hosted a live streaming benefit concert on StageIt.com last week with all proceeds including ticket sales and tips will be donated to Minot's local Red Cross.

Moreover, a benevolent fan who has chosen to remain anonymous will match up to $5,000 of monetary tips given to James during the show as an additional donation.

 “Since I am a former North Dakotan, this is near and dear to my heart. I hope all of you will join me for a very ‘Thirsty Thursday’ that’s more than just fun… it has the ability to make a great impact on those in need,” said Otto. “Please spread the word and join me!”
