Concert with Long Island music stars to support healthcare workers
For Long Islanders missing their favorite music stars, an upcoming concert event is sure to hit all the right notes.
The News 12 Concert Supporting Health Care Heroes will be broadcast on Sunday, May 31 from 8 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. It’s being presented by the Long Island Music Hall of Fame and will benefit the United Way of Long Island’s efforts with local restaurants to deliver meals to responders at area hospitals.
Many inductees of the Long Island Music Hall of Fame will contribute a performance to the concert, including Blue Oyster Cult, Joan Jett, Richie Cannata, Kurtis Blow, Taking Back Sunday, Gary US Bonds, members of Dream Theater, the Stray Cats, and many more, according to a LIMHOF statement.
“We’re pleased to be the beneficiary of the Long Island Music Hall of Fame concert proceeds,” Theresa Regnante, president and CEO of United Way of Long Island, said in the statement. “Our region is struggling right now, and it is United Way’s obligation to help bring equity to vulnerable populations. Health care responders have been on the frontlines of battling COVID-19, all while putting their own lives, and those of their families, at risk. Together, with the support of the public, we can continue to nourish and give thanks to these heroes.”
The concert will be broadcast on News 12 Plus (Channel 61) and FIOS Channel 530.
