“Miley might live in Hollywood, but in her heart, she’ll always be our Tennessee girl.”
That's what country music star Jeffrey Steele said of the Disney golden girl -- who is likely to be a billionaire come her 18th birthday -- after Miley jumped on stage in a surprise salute to Steele's son, a 13 year-old local skateboarder from Franklin, Tenn., who died last year after an ATV accident.
The second-annual festival, which Steele started last year, was a benefit for The Alex LeVasseur Memorial Fund at The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee. All proceeds for the night supported the Memorial Fund’s scholarship fund, which focuses on inspiring and encouraging students to succeed academically and behaviorally through skateboarding, while remembering the life of Alex, who was an avid skateboarder.
According to People Mag, Miley asked Steele if they could perform "Simple Song", a tune written by Steele and originally recorded by Miley herself -- and coincidentally was the only song found on Alex’s iPod after he passed away
In addition, Steele and Miley also played a favorite of Miley’s, Steele's "Hollywood Girl".
