Singer Hailey Knox and chef Jennifer Hill Booker to host 'Musically Mastered Menu' in Atlanta


BY MELISSA RUGGIERI/AJC Music Scene

VH1 Save the Music Foundation has cooked up an interesting pairing.

For the second stop of the organization’s 2017 “Musically Mastered Menu,” fledgling pop singer Hailey Knox and Atlanta chef Jennifer Hill Booker will team for a cozy dinner fundraiser April 26 at Westside Cultural Arts Center.

The event will benefit VH1 Save the Music’s efforts to restore music programs in America’s public schools; the foundation has provided 14 grants to schools in the area, including Atlanta Public Schools, City Schools Decatur and Rockdale County School District and for the 2017-18 school year will provide one Keys + Kids piano grant to an Atlanta-area school.

Tickets for the fundraiser, which runs from 7 p.m.-10 p.m., are $50 and available here.

In addition to her performance, Knox, who opened for Charlie Puth at the Tabernacle last fall and has released her debut EP, “A Little Awkward,” will assist Hill Booker in the kitchen to prepare the dinner.

The “Musically Mastered Menu” evening will be hosted by Atlanta fashion blogger Coco Bassey, who will also curate the event’s décor.

The 2017 series to benefit VH1 Save the Music Foundation kicked off in Miami and will also stop this year in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago and Boston.
