Confide + Conquer Benefit Concert With Kelly Clarkson
Grammy-award winner Kelly Clarkson rocked out for Tupperware Brands Chain of Confidence Benefit Concert for the Boys and Girls Clubs of America.
The event, which took place at the Highline Ballroom in New York City was an intimate concert with celebrity guests such as Actress and star of “Gossip Girl”, Kelly Rutherford, Actress and star of Precious, Gabourey “Gabby” Sidibe, R&B recording artist and producer and BGCA Youth of the Year Ambassador, Ashanti, Platinum-selling, Grammy Award-Winning R&B Artist, Deborah Cox, and Actress and star of “Cedar Rapids”, Alia Shawkat.
This concert was really such an amazing experience. I absolutely loved seeing Kelly perform and beforehand I got to see some of members of the Boys and Girls Clubs of America bust out some killer dance moves while DJ Beverly Bond got the party started.
The venue was decorated beautifully with pink flowers and pink lighting that promoted Tupperware’s Chain of Confidence message of empowerment.
And what is more empowering than dancing just inches away from Kelly Clarkson while she rocks out her strong lyrics? Maybe, looking over in the crowd and seeing the likes of Gibourey Sidibe and Ashanti dancing their hearts out!

Walking in, I wore my new, floral dress from Kmart, paired with wedges from Charlotte Russe. And, of course, I was rocking my ‘Social Vixen’ necklace from Jane Basche! I also had a new, pink cause bracelet to support the benefit!
Kelly Clarkson was the perfect artist to pick for this performance, she definitely understands having to deal with insecurities and how important confidence can be in helping you achieve your dreams.
“I know firsthand how tough it can be to stay true to who you are and feel confident about yourself,” said Kelly Clarkson, “The fact that Tupperware helps so many women accomplish this is incredible and something I’m thrilled to be part of.”

“Tupperware is passionate about changing women’s lives,” said Rick Goings, Tupperware Brands Corporation Chairman & CEO. “While this is something that we have been practicing for decades, we are now encouraging a broader audience to participate in this global movement.”
“Empowerment should start at as young an age as possible. That’s why we look forward to using the Chain of Confidence to provide the Boys & Girls Clubs of America with continued support,” Goings said.
Educating, empowering and inspiring women has been part of the Tupperware Brands philosophy since the very first Tupperware Party was held in 1948. During a time when women were not readily welcomed into the traditional workforce, Tupperware’s direct-selling technique gave women confidence and financial independence.
As for the concert, Kelly Clarkson opened with a bang by performing “Miss Independent”!
She followed with hits including “Breakaway,” “I Do Not Hook Up,” “Because of You,” “Since U Been Gone,” “Behind These Hazel Eyes,” “Walk Away”, and “My Life Would Suck Without You”. She even sang her own rendition of White Stripes’ “Seven Nation Army” (which happens to be one of my favorites and also my American Idol ‘go to’ song on the Wii…which side-note, is amazing!).

About Tupperware Brands Chain of Confidence
The first “link” in the Tupperware Brands Chain of Confidence was created in 1948 by a woman named Brownie Wise, who helped women achieve financial independence before they were fully accepted into the traditional work force. By offering women the opportunity to become a Tupperware Sales Force Consultant, Wise taught women to take ownership of their destinies and the importance of mentoring one another. Today, more than 60 years later, this kind of support remains essential both to a woman’s success and to the Tupperware Brands mission.
