The evening will be hosted by Whoopi Goldberg, Jeff Garlin, Ellie Kemper and Paul Shaffer at the Beacon Theatre in New York on March 12. Additional performers include Chris & Rich Robinson of The Black Crowes, Warren Haynes, Joss Stone, Macy Gray, Jimmie Vaughan and Marcus King.
Love Rocks NYC will benefit non-profit God’s Love We Deliver and is executive produced by international fashion designer John Varvatos and real estate broker and God’s Love We Deliver Board of Trustees member Greg Williamson.
God’s Love We Deliver cooks and home-delivers nutritious, medically tailored meals for people too sick to shop or cook for themselves. Founded in 1985 as a response to the AIDS pandemic, the non-profit now serves people living with more than 200 different diagnoses.
Since launching in 2017, the annual sold-out Love Rocks NYC concerts have helped raise more than $9 million dollars to date, according to the producers. The concerts have also helped to fund approximately one million meals to New Yorkers in need.
The lineup, led by music director and band leader of the CBS Orchestra Will Lee will also include Ivan Neville, Pedrito Martinez, The War & Treaty, Jimmy Vivino, Emily King, Sue Foley and special surprise guests.
Ticket sales go live at 10am ET on Friday. Since the Steven & Alexandra Cohen Foundation has underwritten all concert expenses, 100% of proceeds from the event will directly benefit God’s Love We Deliver.
