Jelly Roll’s Generosity

We all knew Jelly Roll was a good guy, but this is next level.

During a recent free performance in Nashville, Jelly Roll noticed a sign in the crowd. 18-year-old Joy Gadalla had spent the month caring for her grandmother in the hospital, and wanted to see the show for some much-needed emotional release. Joy waited in line for five hours, and was just a couple of feet from Jelly Roll when he started to perform. Jelly Roll then noticed her sign she was holding up on her phone.

“I took like a black picture and then wrote, ‘Please pay my tuition,’ and just held it up.” – Joy Gadalla

Jelly Roll to the time to read the words to the crowd. He then replied, “I’m going to give you the opportunity to change your life right here on this date.” Jelly Roll said that someone from his team would be in touch to learn more about her tuition situation.

“We will help you get through school.” Jelly Roll

What a night and blessing!
