As previously reported, Oklahoma country music star Blake Shelton performed Friday night at PepsiCo’s Super Bowl XLVIII #PEPCITY concert for military veterans. The concert benefited the Bob Woodruff Foundation, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting post-9/11 service members and their families. PepsiCo donated $1 million during the special event, which was hosted by Jon Stewart.

Additional guests in attendance included Aaron Rodgers, AJ Green, Antrel Rolle, Barry Sanders, Brandon Marshall, Derrick Brooks, Drew Brees, Eddie Lacy, Emmitt Smith, Giovani Bernard, Jeff Gordon, Jerry Rice, Joe Theismann, John Lynch, Keenan Allen, Kirk Cousins, Larry Fitzgerald, Marcus Allen, Marshall Faulk, Mike Ditka, Nick Mangold, Shane Vereen, Tiki Barber, Troy Aikman, and Victor Cruz, according to a news release.

#PEPCITY is PepsiCo’s unique Super Bowl venue in New York City’s Bryant Park. Designed to serve as a large-scale “thank you gift” to New York, the activation spans 10,000 square feet and is enclosed by an 80-foot-wide-by-40-foot-high dome.

The event was livestreamed on www.pepsi.com, and included a click-to-donate button to support the Bob Woodruff Foundation and its efforts on behalf of America’s military veterans.
