LIVE STREAM: The Concert For Valor
The first-ever Concert for Valor takes place in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday, and Gossip Cop has a live stream!
Held on the mall in the nation’s Capitol and free to the public, the celebration is in honor of Veteran’s Day, and all of the nation’s veterans. The event is officially described as “a first-of-its-kind concert” that will give a “national stage for ensuring that Veterans and their families know that their fellow Americas’ gratitude is genuine.” The goal, say organizers, is “raising awareness for veterans service organizations dedicated to education, wellness, reemployment and reintegration.” The concert will be broadcast on HBO, the network’s Twitter page, and UStream, along with an audio simulcast through iHeartRadio.
There will be an all-star list of performances and presenters to rival any awards show. Music acts taking the stage include Bruce Springsteen, Carrie Underwood, Rihanna, Eminem, Jennifer Hudson, Metallica, The Black Keys, Dave Grohl, Jessie J, and Zac Brown Band. Jamie Foxx, Jack Black, Bryan Cranston, George Lopez and John Oliver will also appear. Taped tributes are said to include Oprah, Tom Hanks, Will Smith, Meryl Streep, Reese Witherspoon, and Steven Spielberg.
The three-hour concert begins at 7 p.m. Eastern. Go to theconcertforvalor.com.
