“Queen of Country” Reba Headlines Our 34th Annual Benefit Gala

CHRISTUS Health Foundation – Southeast Texas is thrilled to announce that Reba will headline the 34th Annual Gala, set for April 26, 2014 at the Beaumont Civic Center.


One of the most successful female recording artists in history, Reba has sold over 56 million albums worldwide and is a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame. She has won 15 American Music Awards; 13 ACM Awards; 9 People’s Choice Awards; 7 CMA Awards; 2 GRAMMY Awards; an ACM Career Achievement Honor; and is one of only four entertainers in history to receive the National Artistic Achievement Award from the U.S. Congress.

Reba’s reign of #1 hits spans four decades and Billboard, Country Aircheck and Mediabase recognized her as the biggest female hitmaker in Country music history. She earned her 64th Top 10 hit and her 35th #1 with “Turn On The Radio,” from her most recent album, ALL THE WOMEN I AM. Reba’s run of sales successes has garnered her in the upper echelon of #1 albums in the Country genre.

During her ALL THE WOMEN I AM TOUR, both Pollstar and Billboard’s Boxscore (the touring industry’s leading trade outlets) named Reba the #1 female Country touring artist, selling a combined total of over 9 million tickets.

The Oklahoma native is also an acclaimed actress with 11 movie credits to her name, including Tremors, North & The Little Rascals. In 2001, she made her Broadway debut in Irving Berlin’s Annie Get Your Gun which the New York Times hailed, “without qualification the best performance by an actress in a musical comedy this season.” She has also starred in the eponymous sitcom Reba, which ran for 6 seasons on the WB Television Network/The CW, and Malibu Country on ABC.

The black tie benefit provides an opportunity for an intimate evening of entertainment starting with cocktails at 7 p.m. followed by a gourmet meal at 8 p.m., all leading to Reba’s performance at 9:30. Tables for eight start at $3000. Seating is limited and expected to sell out quickly. To learn more or to receive a personalized invitation, please call (409) 899-7555.
