John Legend to headline Northwell benefit concert

Grammy Award-winning John Legend will be the headliner at next month’s benefit concert hosted by Northwell Health at the UBS Arena in Elmont.

Part of a two-day festival called “Side By Side: A Celebration of Service,” the concert on Sunday, May 29 will also feature singer-songwriter Jason Derulo.

Northwell Health first launched the Side By Side event over Memorial Day weekend in 2019. The festival has helped raise more than $2 million in support of Northwell Health’s Military Liaison Services, which aims to redefine the way those who served are viewed, treated and cared for with medical and behavioral services, employment opportunity and other assistance programs.

“Memorial Day weekend is a dedicated time every year to reflect on the sacrifices so many Americans have made in our country’s history,” Michael Dowling, president and CEO of Northwell, said in a company statement. “We should never take for granted the freedoms we enjoy in this country or forget our heroes in the armed forces who will stop at nothing to protect those freedoms. We are honored to host ‘Side by Side: A Celebration of Service’ for those very reasons – to honor our service members.”
