Alan Jackson To Perform At Washington National Cathedral On September 11th
August 22, 2011 at 2:50 PM (PT)
EMI NASHVILLE artist ALAN JACKSON will perform at the WASHINGTON NATIONAL CATHEDRAL for “A Call To Compassion,” a three-day commemoration of the tenth anniversary of 9/11 on SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 11th. PATTI LaBELLE and DENYCE GRAVES will also perform.
In the days following the 9/11 tragedy, the NATIONAL CATHEDRAL was called on to serve as a sacred national gathering place for mourning, reflection and prayer. As the country marks the tenth anniversary of that tragic day, the CATHEDRAL will once again open its doors to the nation and offer a weekend of programming to “honor the dead, address the continued need for national healing, and foster the desire to create a more hopeful and just world.”
The commemoration will be shared with military men and women deployed across the country and around the world by the PENTAGON CHANNEL. “A Concert For Hope” will also air on numerous ABC affiliates nationwide live on SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 11th at 8p (ET). Check local listings. The events will also be streamed at www.calltocampassion.com.
