    Good music x good cause.

    Former American Idol winner David Cook will perform a charity concert at Jammin Java in Vienna, Virginia on December 2, 2014 (#Giving Tuesday) to benefit Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure (ABC2), a venture philanthropy organization. #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving, held the day after Cyber Monday. Find tickets at JamminJava.com.

    Since 2009, Cook and his fans have raised $930,000 for brain cancer research through the Race for Hope DC and various fundraisers. This month, Cook's Crowdrise campaign aims to raise $70,000 to reach the $1 million mark. The performance at Jammin Java will celebrate this milestone.

    Cook has been a champion for brain cancer research since losing his beloved brother Adam to the disease. "It is one of my proudest life experiences to be involved in this fight," said Cook. "With help from my friends, I know we can reach $1 million and celebrate this amazing accomplishment together at the concert on December 2."

    Cook is putting the finishing touches on a new album and the first single, "Wait for Me," will be available at iTunes and other digital retailers on November 17. He will perform this single at the Jammin Java benefit show.

    Visit Crowdrise to contribute to the campaign.
