Last month, it was officially announced that Katharine McPhee has become an ambassador for buildOn, a nonprofit organization dedicated to break the cycle of poverty, illiteracy, and low expectations through service and education.


Across the U.S., buildOn empowers urban youth to transform their neighborhoods and to change the world by building schools in some of the poorest countries in the world. Katharine is no stranger to buildOn. Back in 2014, she teamed up with the organization to build two schools in Burkina Faso.

Up next, Katharine will lend her voice to the LoveLife:LIVESTREAM, a Hollywood talent show to support buildOn, which will take place on Sunday, March 6th at the Microsoft Lounge in Venice, CA. The concert will be live-streamed on the web from 12:00-4:00 PM PST. Kat will perform alongside Andy Grammer, Rachel Platten, Travis Van Winkle, and many more.

The goal of the show is to raise $100,000 to build 3 schools in Senegal, Africa. Please consider donating to the cause at As an added bonus, you could even claim rewards with your donation, including a Scorpion set visit.

Tune in to the LoveLife:LIVESTREAM LIVE on Sunday from 12–4 PM PST (3-7 PM EST) at to watch Katharine and the rest of the buildOn community perform exclusively for you!
