Since the COVID-19 pandemic caused all venues to close its doors, experiencing live music has become a rarity, which is why performers are now taking their talents online.

Country music singer Ben Klick and New Country 100.7 and 103.1 are teaming up to create Virtual Music Fest MS in support of #WeChallengeMS during MS Awareness Month will take place on May 24.

On Sunday, May 24, 2020, at 1 p.m. Pacific Time, Ben Klick is taking the festival online to YouTube. Due tp COVID-19 complications, the event has been re-worked to be watched from the safety and comfort of your own home. Families can gather together at home and watch the show on the computer, phone, tablet, or TV.
