Country star Jake Owen raised $125,000 (£78,125) for his charity with a show in his native Vero Beach, Florida last week (15Dec12).

The singer performed for more than 6,000 fans at the Sports Village venue and donated all of the proceeds from the concert to the Jake Owen Foundation, which supports local organisations and Tennessee's St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

Owen says, "A huge thank you to everyone in Vero Beach Saturday night for an awesome show and helping us raise money for such a great cause. I can't think of a better way to end... this amazing year!"
