And the Kettle Kickoff Talent Is…Enrique Iglesias!

Enrique Iglesias gathers with Salvation Army youth, Board Member Charlotte Jones Anderson, Major George Hood, and Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders.

After hours of build up, we are proud to announce that our featured performer for our 15th annual Red Kettle Kickoff is acclaimed pop artist Enrique Iglesias!

Performing at the Dallas Cowboys halftime show on Thanksgiving Day, Enrique will help us “kick off” the 120th anniversary of the Army’s Red Kettle Campaign. So not only do you get to watch the Cowboys battle the Miami Dolphins, you’ll get to dance off that turkey dinner while Enrique lights up the stage! You won’t want to miss hits from his Euphoria tour, including his newest song about giving back!

“This is a great opportunity – to spend Thanksgiving in Dallas where music, football and helping others truly comes together,” said Enrique.

Fans also have the opportunity to see this entire event LIVE by entering our virtual bell ringer contest! You could win an all expenses paid trip to Dallas for the big game and kettle kickoff. All you have to do is sign up as a virtual bell ringer with The Salvation Army Online Red Kettle campaign! The person who collects the highest number of donors to give to their individual kettle will be eligible to win. Visit to get started today. Don’t wait too long! The contest ends November 18.

After you’ve counted your blessings and eaten turkey to your heart’s content, help us bring in the Christmas season in style by watching the big game and The Salvation Army kettle kickoff halftime show beginning at 3:15 p.m. CST airing on FOX!
