Viral sensation, country singer Karen Waldrup launches VIRTUAL SPIRIT WEEK


Karen Waldrup is constantly pushing the boundaries and has always committed to innovation in her career and she’s stepping it up even more during this pandemic.

The songstress announced on Facebook live the first ever “Waldrup Worldwide” digital spirit week.

It will be just like those spirit weeks in high school or college but digital and worldwide.

Waldrup is asking her fans to dress up as a certain theme each day including repping a favorite sports team, favorite concert tee and throwing in some western flair on Wild West Waldrup Wednesday. (See the graphic for each day’s theme.)
“My single 'Me Again' is about love and support healing a broken spirit and that’s what spirit week is. Trying to uplift people’s spirits in a lonely time - but from home," Waldrup said.  "We got creative and remembered that most people have some old Halloween costumes and a favorite sports jersey.  Why not lift spirits together online. I feel like I’m supposed to bring light to peoples lives through this dark time. That’s the purpose of #waldrupworldwidespiritweek."
The viral sensation will wrap spirit week with the first ever digital pep rally featuring music, inspirational stories, a big announcement, a cheer or two and lots of camaraderie and encouragement.

Up to 100 of Karen’s fans will be featured on the pep rally that will be broadcast live on her Facebook page here.
