Musician and Radio Talk Show Host Continues Using Music to Make a Difference
Phoenix, Ariz. - Since 2012 Scott Helmer’s concerts have helped raise more than $2 Million Dollars for good causes across America ranging from military veterans and their families, equine and pet rescues, food banks, non-profit theatres, suicide and crisis prevention, special needs children and adults, high schools and colleges, and more. Helmer’s 2017 tour continues his mission of using music to make a difference. Beginning in May and running through December 2017, event organizers, venues and good causes can book Scott Helmer's “World’s Greatest One-Man Rock & Roll Show” to benefit their own cause.
Helmer has opened for iconic acts like Heart, Eddie Money, Jeff Bridges, 3 Doors Down, Eric Burdon and the Animals, and more, and his newest live show consists of rock & roll and country hits, in addition to his own music. Helmer’s upbeat and energetic 2-hour performance finds him moving from acoustic to electric guitars, to piano, and even to the drums. Audiences of all ages are guaranteed to be entertained, on their feet, and singing and dancing in the aisles, all while helping support important causes within their community. Causes get to keep 100% of the proceeds and can even elect to have "The Scott Helmer Show" broadcast live from their event.
To elevate events to the next level and gain support from; active-duty military, veterans, first responders, families and more, event organizers can elect to also raise money and awareness for Veterans For Child Rescue, a cause that is very important to Helmer. Led by former Navy SEAL, Sniper and TV Star, Craig "Sawman" Sawyer, Veterans For Child Rescue plans to expose and stop child sex trafficking rings across America. Sawyer appeared on Helmer's worldwide broadcast, "The Scott Helmer Show" April 10, 2017, to explain how these rings include members from every level of our society and involve unthinkable trauma inflicted upon innocent babies and children - the soul of our nation. Sawyer stated, "this abuse must first be brought to light before it can be cleaned up. Veterans For Child Rescue was created to shine that light!" "We will expose this crisis through joint operations with law enforcement and by sharing the truth in an unflinching television documentary series for the world to see."

Why would someone continue devoting their life to initiatives like this? In 2008 as the world economy was spiraling out of control, Scott Helmer sat alone in his car on a deserted mountain road in Northern Arizona with a gun in his mouth, ready to take his own life. After making a series of serious mistakes he ended losing everything including his family, all of his possessions, his career and most importantly his self-respect. In the seconds before pulling the trigger Helmer cried out to God for help and said, ‘I don’t want to do this. If you help me through this I won’t give up and will use all of this bad stuff to help others and to make a difference, so that no one else has to go through what I am going through right now." Helmer then put the gun down, decided to never give up, picked up his guitar and began to keep the promise he made that fateful day.
