A student at Belmont University in Nashville, Tenn., Robert was saddened by the events, but she refused to feel helpless. The singer-songwriter, who’s majoring in entertainment industry studies, went to work organizing a benefit concert, enlisting other Nashville musicians she knows with ties to Boston.
The money is being donated to One Fund Boston, which has raised more than $30 million for the bombing victims, many of whom lost limbs and are facing many months of therapy.
“It was definitely scary,” she said. “A lot of my cousins go to school in Boston, so I was calling them hoping they were all OK.”
In addition to being a full-time student, Robert is working at a record company in Nashville and interning with a music stylist. She also works in the area of brand management and image consultation.
