Top Artists Band Together To Benefit God’s Love We Deliver at the Beacon
ZEALnyc, February 20, 2017
God’s Love We Deliver, New York City’s leading provider of life-sustaining meals and nutrition counseling for people living with severe illnesses has been offering their services for 31 years, and now it’s time to celebrate! Leading artists from all across the board are coming together to present LOVE ROCKS NYC! A Change Is Gonna Come: Celebrating Songs of Peace, Love and Hope, the first-ever benefit concert for this worthy organization. The concert will be held at the historic Beacon Theatre on Thursday March 9 and will support and honor the work of the cherished New York-based not-for profit-organization. All proceeds of the concert will directly benefit God’s Love We Deliver.
The current list of artists scheduled to perform include: Joe Walsh, Mavis Staples, Jackson Browne, Cyndi Lauper, Warren Haynes, Michael McDonald, Gary Clark Jr., Susan Tedeschi, Aaron Neville, Derek Trucks, Dr. John, CeCe Winans, Keb’ Mo, Marc Cohn, The Blind Boys of Alabama, Sam Moore, William Bell, Lisa Fischer, Anthony Hamilton, Joan Osborne, Amy Helm, Catherine Russell, Jackie Greene, Marcus King, Tash Neal, and more will be announced.
Drawing inspiration from iconic musical pioneer Sam Cooke and his legendary hit, “A Change Is Gonna Come,” this marquee event will unite new and existing supporters of God’s Love We Deliver in their mission to change the lives they serve for the better together through music — the universal language that speaks to all. It will also highlight the charity’s continued success of providing life-sustaining meals and nutrition counseling for people in the New York Metropolitan area living with severe illness. All of the agency’s services are provided free of charge, and throughout its history, God’s Love We Deliver has never had a waiting list.
In addition to all the talent scheduled to perform, the “house band” will include such luminaries as musical director Will Lee (The CBS Orchestra), Paul Shaffer (The CBS Orchestra), Steve Gadd (James Taylor, Eric Clapton), Shawn Pelton (Saturday Night Live), Eric Krasno (Soulive, Phil Lesh & Friends), Larry Campbell (Levon Helm, Bob Dylan) and Jeff Young (Jackson Browne).
