Steven Tyler hosting Grammys gala for Janie's Fund charity

  Steven Tyler hosting Grammys gala for Janie's Fund charity Steven Tyler is using the 2018 Grammy Awards to host a charity viewing party to benefit his Janie's Fund organisation. The Aerosmith frontman launched the charity, which helps girls who are abused or neglected, in 2015 and now he has teamed up with bosses at Live Nation to launch the inaugural Janie's Fund Gala and Grammy Awards Viewing Party at RED Studios in Hollywood, California on 28 January (18). The evening will also include a dinner, live auction, and a performance by Tyler and his band Loving Mary, all to raise money for the musician's fund, which is named after Aerosmith's hit Janie's Got a Gun. "This gala is more than a night out, it's a break on through to the other side for these girls whose lives have been stunted," reads a statement from Tyler. "It's an opportunity to learn of the valuable work we will be doing to get them there. It's time to bring the awareness out of the darkness and into the light for these girls, for all to see." News of the Grammys gala emerges weeks after the rocker opened Janie's House, a safe haven for abused and troubled girls in Georgia. "It takes young girls in and it's got a staff, and it's got some therapists, and it's got people for them to talk to," Tyler said upon the centre's launch last month (Dec17). "When girls come in and they're broken and battered, it's a place for them to go.

Several boys alleged Bennell had abused them more than 100 times. Bennell gave the boys sports kit and ordered them fast-food takeaways as well as having a pool table and so many gaming machines another boy described the house being like an amusement arcade.

Nor would they tell anyone else, either through fear of not being believed, or because they felt it would jeopardise their chances of fulfilling their dreams of becoming professional players.

The court also heard about boys being abused during a youth squad trip to a Butlins holiday camp in North Wales, where once again they were encouraged to play "follow me".

Abuse also took place at a property the boys called "the haunted house", where Bennell would show the 11 and 12-year-olds horror movies before sexually assaulting them, jurors heard.

After a short recess the jury was shown a television interview in which former footballer Andy Woodward broke his silence about being abused.

It was after seeing this, they were told, that the victim giving evidence decided to come forward to police.

Bennell, who is appearing in court via video-link due to illness, denies 48 counts of child sex abuse.

The trial continues.
