Goodwill concert gives back



One of those artists is Norman native Maggie McClure. Before she headed out to Los Angeles to pursue her music career she regularly played at venues around Norman. When McClure was asked to be a part of the Peace, Love and Goodwill show for the second time she was ecstatic to come home to Oklahoma for a charitable opportunity.

“I was actually asked to play the benefit concert last year and it was an incredible experience and a huge success,” McClure said. “The other acts of the night were really great and it was just overall an awesome opportunity. I always have enjoyed being a part of events that help different charities and organizations and people in general.”

McClure’s silky vocals and piano skills have landed her music in the movie “Cowgirls N’ Angels,” Oprah Winfry Network’s “Dr. Phil,” MTV’s “The Real World,” “Worst. Prom. Ever.,” “The Hills” and “The City,” as well as CBS’s “The Young and The Restless.” The singer-songwriter has also scored herself a spot in FOX’s “Glee” star Matt Morrison’s new music video coming out in early June. McClure is about to launch a fan-funded campaign with Pledge Music that will hopefully raise $15,000 in 60 days to fund the recording and release of her new EP that would come out in the fall.

McClure’s husband Shane Henry is also on the bill for the night, along with another Norman musician and friend, Kyle Reid.

“Kyle and I have known each other a long time and I’ve always thought he was a great musician and really talented,” McClure said. “I am really excited to see what he has in store for the show because I actually haven’t heard him do his solo stuff before and I’m really excited to see how that is going to end up.”
