It goes without saying that a great concert will leave any music lover feeling good. That goes double for anyone attending the October 4 show at Radio City Music Hall featuring Paul Simon, Edie Brickell, James Taylor, Stevie Wonder, Tina Fey, Sting, and a variety of other talent. And not just because the slate of talent is so impressive—attending the show (tickets are available here) is also a good deed, considering the concert benefits Children’s Health Fund, Simon’s 25-year-old charity.
“When I started Children’s Health Fund with Paul Simon in 1987, we didn’t know how long we would need mobile medical clinics to care for underserved children. While we have made major strides and have provided almost 3 million medical encounters to children, there is still much to be done,” says Dr. Irwin Redlener, Children’s Health Fund co-founder and president. “We are truly grateful to the incredible line up of talent assembled for this concert, and know the funds raised through this event will allow us to do even more in the future.”
In addition to live performances, the show will also serve as a celebration of the awards given out beforehand to both American Idol founder Simon Fuller and David Pulman, PhD, president of Global Manufacturing and Supply, GlaxoSmithKline, for their support of the cause.
While the tunes are sure to be great, this night at Radio City will give any music fan plenty of reasons to feel good.
