Hanson told us that they were excited for their first Rock the Red Kettle performance. They promised to make us all happy by playing fan-favorite 'Mmmbop.' During soundcheck Colbie serenaded the already growing crowd with holiday carols. She admitted that she still gets slightly nervous on stage, but soundchecks help soothe her nerves and prepare her for the performance.
Cody Simpson was nice enough to interrupt his soundcheck to sign a few autographs and talk to the fans who had been waiting for him since that morning. As more girls crowded the stage, Cody was lavished with attention and presents to boot! Cody was glad to be involved in something as important as Rock the Red Kettle.
Greyson Chance was ready to rock as he soundchecked songs from his debut album. Greyson has been a supporter of the Salvation Army for a while, telling us that he would donate old clothes to them as he grew out of them.
Rock the Red Kettle alumni Honor Society were touring with Rock the Red Kettle across the country. Their devotion to the Salvation Army didn't waver, even as it started to rain during their soundcheck.
Drake Bell was all dressed up fo the occasion and rocked out on his guitar. With soundcheck over, the only thing left was the big show. You can watch performances from the concert here.
