Kickstarter Helps Kenny Loggins Fan Realize His Dream

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

All right, our last word in Business today is the story of a music fan - a serious music fan.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

A man.

INSKEEP: A plan.

GREENE: And 30 grand.

INSKEEP: Erick Sanchez just wanted to make his dream come true.

GREENE: To fly soft-rock legend Kenny Loggins and his Blue Sky Riders to Washington, D.C., and have them play a 75-minute acoustic set in his living room.

INSKEEP: (Singing) I'm all right - so Sanchez launched a kickstarter campaign. And within 10 days, he reached his $30,000 goal.

GREENE: Who wouldn't want to support that dream? Even Kenny Loggins himself pitched in.

INSKEEP: (Laughter).

(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "DANGER ZONE")

KENNY LOGGINS: (Singing) Highway to the danger zone.

INSKEEP: That's the Business News on MORNING EDITION from NPR News. I'm Steve Inskeep.

GREENE: And I'm David Greene. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
