James Blunt Rocks for MSF

James Blunt may be enjoying a successful music career and still dating gorgeous model Petra Nemcova, but that doesn't mean that he's too important for a good cause. The singer will be playing a special show to benefit Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF). James first became involved with MSF, an organization that provides emergency medical assistance to countries in danger, while he was in the British army. Here's more:

A staunch supporter of Doctors Without Borders/MSF, Blunt personally witnessed the organization's life-saving work while stationed with the British army in Kosovo, where he served as a reconnaissance officer with the NATO peacekeeping force. One of his songs, "No Bravery," was written in response to the genocide he had witnessed while in Kosovo.

In addition to the benefit concert at the House of Blues, at each venue on Blunt's current U.S. tour, a personal, one-on-one after show meet and greet with James is being auctioned at the show's merchandise booth, with all proceeds going to Doctors Without Borders/MSF. James has raised thousands of dollars since he started doing these auctions earlier this year on his Spring 2006 tour.

So far James has raised $160K this year for the organization. So if you're going to be in SoCal this weekend you should definitely go. The performance is at the House of Blues in LA on November 16th. For more information or to buy tickets click here.
