John Mayer organizes, sings at MT benefit concert
Singer/songwriter John Mayer performed in his first concert in nearly two years, a fundraiser he helped organize to benefit the firefighters that helped save his and other homes in Montana's Paradise Valley from an 8,500-acre wildfire last summer.
Mayer started with his first live performance of "If I Ever Get Around to Living," at a concert in Bozeman Wednesday night that included Zac Brown and raised more than $100,000.
At the time of the late August fire near Livingston, Mayer was in Los Angeles receiving treatment for a growth near his vocal cords. In May, a second granuloma was removed. Mayer says Botox injections used to keep his vocal cords from pressing together while they heal have limited his ability to hit high notes.
