As of late, Joe Nichols has been donating his voice to help those in need. The ‘The Shape I’m In’ singer appeared at a USO dinner in Washington, D.C. earlier this week to perform and honor the military, as well as raise money for a good cause. Similarly, Nichols will put on a show tonight in Fort Worth, Texas to benefit the Red Cross relief effort in Japan.

The USO of Metropolitan Washington hosted a dinner this week to honor the different military branches — and since Nichols’ ‘The Shape I’m In’ music video is a direct nod to injured soldiers, the deep-voiced singer was a perfect fit for the evening’s entertainment. President Elaine B. Rogers made initial contact after seeing the video, which she says “truly represents who we serve.” In total, the dinner raised $572,000 for the organization.

“Getting to spend time with those honored by the USO as well as other military folks attending the dinner was truly one of the most humbling and important evenings I have ever been a part of,” Nichols comments.

But his week of charity didn’t stop there. Tonight, Nichols will play a concert in partnership with Billy Bob’s Texas famed Fort Worth music venue, in order to assist who have been put out by the recent tsunami and earthquake in Japan. All proceeds from the ticket sales will go straight to the Red Cross.
