Raleigh singer-songwriter Jeanne Jolly joined Aaron for Live & Local, ahead of Saturday’s “Concert for Cancer” in Cary.

The Concert for Cancer is a show at the Koka Booth Amphitheatre, benefiting the Kay Yow Cancer Fund. Since its inception, the Kay Yow Fund has raised more than $8 million to fight cancers affecting women.

Visit KayYow.com for more information on the Kay Yow Fund, plus a link to buy tickets to Saturday’s show.

It’s a cause Jolly knows well, after watching her mother battle ovarian cancer. She’s played shows to benefit the Kay Yow Fund before, and she says their mission is near and dear to her heart.

In addition to Jolly, this year’s show features Ruben Studdard and Clay Aiken, who are on tour celebrating the 20th anniversary of their famous showdown on the second season of American Idol. (Jolly says she and Aiken also briefly went to school together.) Rebekah Todd is also set to perform, off the release of last year’s album “Realign.”

Jeanne Jolly stopped by Live & Local to play three songs and discuss the show, which starts at 7 p.m. Saturday, April 29. Listen:
