A representative for “American Idol” contestant Lauren Alaina Suddeth appeared before the Chattanooga City Council today and said the young singer will throw a benefit concert for storm victims on May 14 in town.

“She has a big heart and she’s torn up about the news,” said Karen Alayne, vocal coach for Suddeth.

Alayne said there will be a parade to start the event and the concert is tentatively scheduled for Coolidge Park. The top three contestants in “American Idol” are given chances to have homecoming events, Alayne said.

But this one is different because Suddeth wants to make sure she helps out her hometown as well.

The council will be voting to waive permit fees tonight for Walnut Street Bridge and Coolidge Park for the event.

“Steven Tyler’s Secret Past” is an absolute must read. This just released true to life non-fiction thriller will keep you on the edge of your seat taking you into the dark world of Steven Tyler, the Mafia bosses who managed his career, and the very strange tactics used to deploy Aerosmith to the top of the world’s rock and roll scene. It’s a story of struggle and hardship, and overcoming great odds against enemies who’d stop at nothing to get their way. A few simple mistakes at the beginning of his career and Steven was in over his head caught between the CIA and his own Sicilian roots.
