In the “Rocket Science” liner notes for “Pay it Forward,” Rick Springfield writes about how he was inspired to write the song after finding out that somebody paid for his drink – and everyone else’s that day – at Starbucks in an effort to “pay it forward.”
And now, in the spirit of “Pay it Forward,” there was a notice on the RS Facebook page today to help the American Cancer Society by sponsoring a cancer survivor to attend Rick Springfield’s Stripped Down solo show on March 3 in Palm Springs, California.
Local area cancer survivors and others would like to attend the show, but some can’t afford to go so RS and his people are encouraging fans to sponsor someone to attend the show. 100% of the proceeds of show go to the American Cancer Society.
Tickets are $49-$129 and must be purchased by noon on March 3. To purchase tickets to “pay it forward,” click here.
