Keith & The Kids

Ever dream of jamming with Keith Urban? Some lucky campers got the chance.

On July 23, Keith, a three-time Grammy award winner himself, headlined the Grammy Foundation's signature benefit Starry Night concert at the LA Tennis Center at the University of California, Los Angeles.

As part of Keith's sold-out, two-hour concert, six Grammy Camp participants were called up to the stage to perform his No. 1 hit "Days Go By." Katie Gavin of Winnetka, Ill., Savannah Meares of Santa Barbara, Calif., and Brenna Miles of La Canada Flintridge, Calif., sang background vocals; India Pascucci of Burbank, Calif., played drums; and guitarist Kristen Castro of Simi Valley, Calif., and violinist Kevin Schwarzwald of Pacific Palisades, Calif., were both featured with solos during the song.

"Having those kids onstage with us on Friday really serves as a reminder of what is possible when you're lucky enough to find your passion," Keith said in a statement after the performance. "I was so impressed by their talent and their obvious love for playing."

The kids first met Keith onstage prior to the concert during his afternoon soundcheck, when he and his band worked with the campers to put the finishing touches on their performance.
