Grammy Award-nominated and multi-platinum singer-songwriter Ellie Goulding will perform live at AT&T Stadium during the Cowboys game against the Buffalo Bills on Thanksgiving Day.

The kickoff performance is a Cowboys tradition, sounding the call for Americans to donate to the iconic Red Kettle Campaign, which helps provide shelter and meals for the homeless and hungry, Christmas toys for children and social service programs to millions of people in need year-round.

During a recent visit to The Salvation Army’s New York Temple Corps soup kitchen, Ellie Goulding witnessed the impact of The Salvation Army’s services on people’s lives, funded by critical donations made during the Red Kettle Campaign and throughout the year.

“I am honored to perform at the Dallas Cowboys halftime show and kick off The Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign.” Goulding said. “With so many people in need, I believe it’s our duty to help, and I encourage everyone to donate to The Salvation Army. The money they raise during the Red Kettle Campaign will change lives for the better all year long.”

Charlotte Jones Anderson, the Cowboys’ executive vice president and chief brand officer said the team couldn’t have found a better fit.

“Ellie Goulding’s infectious energy and generous spirit is a perfect match to kick off the campaign,” she said. “We are so excited to have Ellie on our national stage for another incredible kickoff performance this year.”

The Red Kettle Campaign, which begins on Thanksgiving Day and runs through Christmas Eve, is the largest and longest-running fundraiser of its kind. It raised $142.7 million during the 2018 campaign.
