Country star Martina McBride raised more than $35,000 (£21,875) for charity with a sell-out concert in Tennessee last week (ends18Nov12).

The singer took to the stage at the Hard Rock Cafe Nashville last Friday (16Nov12) to benefit the Musicians on Call (Moc) Nashville organisation, which brings live and recorded music to hospital patients.

The evening also featured an auction, and MCBride is delighted with the total raised.

She says, "I was so happy to be a part of the fifth anniversary of Musicians On Call in Nashville. We put together an eclectic set list of hits mixed with some of our favourite album cuts for a show that was one-of-a-kind. It's a great organisation doing important work and I was proud to be a part of that very special evening."
