She stars in a hit Nickelodeon television show and just kicked off a multi-city music tour this week.

iCarly star, Jennette McCurdy, performed for about 30 minutes Wednesday evening in front of hundreds of fans at Stoneridge mall.

Dublin resident Janine Thalblum took her seven and eight year old sons to the performance and said they were very excited to meet her.

A fan of the iCarly show, seven year old Jon said, "It's a good thing we weren't wearing stripes!" The character McCurdy plays in the show, Sam, is not a fan of stripes.

McCurdy's tour is called "Generation Love for St. Jude" and following her performance, she signed autographs.

The tour is named for the singer's new single of the same name.

Fans who attended could purchase a charity CD package for a $10 donation with all proceeds benefiting St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

The charity CD package included an 8x10 photo and two songs— "Generation Love" and "Put Your Arms Around Someone", as well as an autograph.

"They both enjoyed her performance and said they couldn't wait to hear her CD in the car on the way home," said Thalblum.

She added: "We did talk about the fact that the proceeds went to St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital and the importance of giving to others. I would say that was the big takeaway from the event."

Organizers say the event raised thousands of dollars for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
