The annual Variety Kids Telethon happens this weekend on Channel 7, and once again this year, there will be a special "Concert With The Stars" at Riviera Theater the night before to kick off this great fundraiser that has done so much for so many in Western New York.

One of the faces/talents appearing this year is rising country music star Lyndsey Highlander. We spoke to her about coming to Buffalo!

I have been watching the Variety Kids Telethon as long as I have been alive. Being a part of the action behind the scenes has allowed me to witness the hard work and time that goes in to putting on such a great production. It has also given us a chance to meet new stars like Lyndsey! I love her spirit and dedication to causes such as this, and it's a real treat to me someone so passionate about country music!
