Adrienne and Israel Houghton talk on “The Real” in 2016.

Adrienne Houghton and her husband, Israel Houghton, brought Christmas to Los Angeles early with a benefit concert for their Besos Care Package charity along with the Salvation Army Monday.

The Houghtons hosted the benefit drive at The Belasco Theater in Los Angeles on Monday evening where they raised money and performed songs from Adrienne’s upcoming Christmas album. Adrienne, the co-host of the syndicated daytime talk show “The Real,” worked with her Christian singer-songwriter husband Israel to sell a range of $20 concert tickets to $100 VIP packages that included entry into a gifting suite.

The Houghtons asked people to bring toothbrushes and toothpaste for the care packages that they make for the less fortunate in the Los Angeles area.

“Besos Care Packages is a direct service project to meet the basic human needs of our neighbors struggling in Skid Row Los Angeles,” a description of the Houghton’s Besos Care Packages reads on the Southern California Salvation Army website. “Working alongside The Salvation Army, we aim to build and deliver 500 care packages for women on Skid Row all sealed with a kiss, handwritten notes, and more!”

Israel supported his wife by taking to Instagram to tell the world about the event and how he and Adrienne were partners in purpose.

“It’s so amazing having a PURPOSE PARTNER … This Monday night July 10 we are celebrating Christmas in July @belasco_los_angeles in an event benefiting the homeless of LA through @salvationarmy_entertainmentdiv @salvationarmyus & @besoscarepackages – @adriennebailon and myself will be performing a few songs from her upcoming Christmas album – you really don’t want to miss this special night,” he wrote. “..Let’s make a difference together. #ChristmasInJuly.”
