Day 5 – February 22, 2015 – R5
Bert’s Big Adventure is nonprofit organization that provides a magical, all-expenses-paid, five-day journey to Walt Disney World® for children with chronic and terminal illnesses and their families. Yesterday, the 2015 families got the surprise of their life at the happiest place on earth. On Sunday, February 22nd, the organization received a private performance from pop-rock quintet R5 during their annual trip to Walt Disney World®.
The children of Bert’s Big Adventure and their families enjoyed a meet and greet, photo opportunity and private breakfast with the band which included Ross Lynch and siblings Riker, Rocky, Rydel and Ellington “Ratliff”. They also received the opportunity to have their official “Bert’s Big Adventure” t-shirts signed by the entire band.
After an incredible year and a half of touring the globe; playing 150 shows to packed-house crowds from North America to Australia and everywhere in-between (21 countries at last count), R5 played their new single “Let’s Not Be Alone Tonight” during the private performance. R5’s sophomore album is due out this summer.
