Grammy winners James Taylor and Carole King are announcing that they have raised more than $1.5 million in charitable donations so far on their "Troubadour Reunion" tour.

Taylor and King are holding a news conference Sunday before their show at the TD Garden in Boston to present donations raised through the halfway point of the North American leg of the tour to the Natural Resources Defense Council, Alliance for the Wild Rockies and other charities.

The $1.5 million raised so far is 50 percent more than the singer-songwriters had anticipated.

The money is being raised through special packages offered to fans, including stage seating, pre-show soundcheck sessions, private VIP receptions and a commemorative tour book.
