Sponsor 8th Continent Soymilk will donate $10,000 to local high school music programs.

Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter and The Sing Off host Sara Bareilles met with a contest winner and her son before opening for Sugarland at Los Angeles’ Greek Theatre last week.

The contest, 8th Continent Soymilk’s “Nice Job, Mom: We Rock”, allowed mothers to explain in 50 words or less why they are rock stars. Sandy Nevels won, and brought her aspiring singer son to Los Angeles for a private meet and greet with Bareilles, who served as the contest’s spokesperson.

8th Continent Soymilk will also make a $50,000 donation in the winner’s name to local high school music programs this fall.
