Jelly Roll Is Finally Going International After Previous Felony Restrictions Prevented Travel

Jelly Roll has become a household name in America but singing abroad has proven a bit more complicated for the singer.   Due to his past arrests and various felonies, travel visas were not easily attainable.  However, Jelly Roll has booked his first performance in Canada set for July 8th of this year.   The very next day, he’ll be performing at Ottawa’s Bluesfest, which includes Carly Rae JepsenNoah CyrusNickelback and Maroon 5.

The first performance is an extra special one for Jelly Roll because it will be held at the Meridian Center in St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada in support of the Heather Winterstein Foundation.    The Foundation’s executive director Jennifer Dockstader said in a statement to Billboard: “His dedication to raising awareness, sharing his story of healing and supporting substance use disorder treatments are a beacon of hope for Indigenous and non-Indigenous people alike across Turtle Island. His message brings the struggles of our loved ones into the open and helps us celebrate the healing journeys of our relatives in our community, offering opportunities for equity and reconciliation.”
