What better way to spread Christmas cheer during the holidays than giving back to those in need and getting to see one of the biggest pop singers perform just for you! Hundreds of fans did just that for AMP Radio’s annual Toys For Teens benefit concert featuring [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Taio Cruz[/lastfm] at Buena Park Downtown on Saturday.

With the help of our many charitable listeners, AMP was able to fill cartloads full of unwrapped toys and games to brighten up a needy teen’s Christmas morning and have a massive dance party with Taio Cruz to celebrate!
As the crowd packed into the mall’s plaza area, AMP’s own DJs got the party started and the crowd ready for the man of the night. Backed with his three-piece band of a guitarist, keyboardist and DJ, Taio emerged on the festively decorated stage in his trademark sunglasses and leather jacket, and launched into his current club-banging hit “Hangover” to the cheers of screaming fans.
The cheers didn’t stop there as Taio rocked a short but sweet set that included his massive chart topping hit “Break Your Heart” and ending on a high note with “Dynamite.”
To help close the show, Taio enlisted the help of all the great singers, terrible singers and even just the average to sing along to his catchy hook in “Dynamite” — “I throw my hands up in the air sometimes/saying ayo/gotta let go” — while of course throwing hands up high in the air on the cue.
And just like that, the show wrapped up like the many gifts AMP graciously collected for teens in need this Christmas. And with perfect timing too, because rain shortly showered the plaza directly after the show.
The night was full of celebration, festive spirits and fans generously giving back to the community to make someone’s holiday wishes come true, which in the end is really what Christmas is all about!
