Scottish singer songwriter Amy Macdonald is playing five gigs across Scotland on Tuesday in a fund-raising event for the STV Appeal.
The East Dunbartonshire performer, best known for her hit This Is The Life, is playing in Aberdeen, Dundee, Stirling, Edinbugh and Glasgow in a special one-day Scottish tour.
Her Aberdeen performance at The Lemon Tree venue got under way at 8.30am, and her final show takes place in Glasgow at 11pm.
She has just released her third album Life in a Beautiful Light, and has been performing tracks from this collection along with hits like Mr Rock 'n' Roll
Speaking ahead of the shows, she said: "This will be the first time I'll be playing some of my new songs live in the UK so I can't wait to see how they go down.
"Plus every single penny we raise through the five gigs will go towards the STV Appeal, helping children living in poverty across Scotland."
The STV Appeal 2012 is raising funds to help children and young people in Scotland who are affected by poverty. The appeal works with major charities and local initiatives in tackling the problem which affects one on four children in Scotland.
Last year the appeal raised almost £1.3m which was distributed to charities and projects across Scotland.
