VIPAccessEXCLUSIVE: Kendall Schmidt Interview With Alexisjoyvipaccess At The Dee Dee Jackson Foundation’s Celebrity Softball Game!

3 Aug


Ever since the remarkable Kendall Schmidt set foot in the entertainment industry, we all have been swooning over him ’till no end. The extraordinary Kendall Schmidt first stole the hearts of fans worldwide as a member of the boy band phenomenon, Big Time Rush. It goes without saying that everywhere and anywhere that this awesome band went, they always caused a pandemonium. After the band decided to move on with their own individual endeavors, Kendall Schmidt continues to take over the music world by storm. He has been devoting all of his time and passion into his alternative pop band, Heffron Drive, where he serves as the lead vocalist and his buddy Dustin Belt shreds it on the guitar. We all have tons of heart-eye emojis for everything that this sensational band works on. Kendall Schmidt and Dustin Belt never fail to bring out musical masterpieces to all of their fans and we can’t help but constantly listen to all of their music on repeat.

It’s clear to see how much this exceptional duo loves what they do and we could hear their raw and genuine talent for music in all of their songs. Their recent single, “Hot Summer,” is yet another one of their many successful, hit songs and it is, without a doubt, everyone’s summer anthem. Heffron Drive has been keeping busy with a countless amount of magnificent projects to share with all of their fans. In fact, they even won Macy’s iHeartRadio Rising Star competition and will be making their way on over to Las Vegas to perform at the iHeartRadio Festival. From giving fans unforgettable performances to releasing epic songs and music videos, Heffron Drive was definitely destined to hit it big. With some more music up their sleeves (and a new song just recently finished), we know that Heffron Drive will continue to mesmerize everyone with all of their stupendous work.

Kendall Schmidt dished exclusively to Alexisjoyvipaccess all about what it was like creating the “Hot Summer” music video, what are some other upcoming projects that Heffron Drive is working on that fans can stay tuned for and so much more only in our VIPAccessEXCLUSIVE interview.

T’was a Sunday well spent with one iconic family for a great cause at the brilliant Dee Dee Jackson Foundation’s Celebrity Softball Game that took place on July 29, 2018 in Encino, California. A countless amount of spectacular celebrities gathered together and said batter up!! as they showed their support towards the inspiring and life-changing organization. The Dee Dee Jackson Foundation works endlessly to help youth recover from loss in their lives. The magnificent foundation honors the late Dee Dee Jackson, who dedicated her life to helping others and making a positive impact in the lives of many.

The Jackson family including Tito Jackson, TJ Jackson, Taj Jackson, Taryll Jackson and Prince Jackson as well as other celebrities including UFC legend Chuck Liddell, musician Kendall Schmidt, Terrell Owens, Ser’Darius Blain, Da’Vinchi and many more enjoyed taking a swing at the ball and joining in on an unforgettable day for a remarkable foundation. The event was held in honor of the one and only, Joe Jackson.

All celebrity attendees had a total blast playing ball under the sun. The Jackson family’s team consisting of TJ Jackson, Taj Jackson, Taryll Jackson and Prince Jackson had a triumphant win with a close game of 10-7. Katherine Jackson was also in attendance to cheer on her family’s terrific win.

Taj Jackson talked about how near and dear this foundation is to him and how much it has made a difference in the lives of so many people through community and music therapy. He said, “It’s not only helping children, it’s helping adults too. When we first started, we wanted to focus on children because when we lost our mom, we were young, I was the oldest, I was 21, Taryll was 19, TJ was 16. You don’t really have the tools to deal with that – losing a parent or losing someone you’re close to. We didn’t really have an avenue to reach out and figure it out. We had family and friends that we were lucky to have but we wanted to create something where people have somewhere to go and know that they are not alone, because loneliness is the worst thing. We wanted to create something in that way so that’s kind of what this foundation is. We are doing music therapy for kids and at the same time we are trying to build a community for adults as well. Actually, a lot of people online have come today and are connecting — they have never met and that’s the best for me, where people are helping each other, which is what we need.” (source: press release)

It truly was a special day for everyone – from the incredible celebrities who came out to support this wonderful event to all of the attendees who were able to meet and greet with a legendary family and the many stars who attended.
