The second annual Love Rocks NYC!, a benefit for God’s Love We Deliver, was held at New York’s Beacon Theatre on Thursday night (March 15). It was a star-studded music event with performances by Keith Richards, Billy Gibbons, Ann Wilson, Donald Fagen, Mavis Staples, Emmylou Harris, and many others. The lineup created many opportunities throughout the night for artists to collaborate on different performances. They were all backed by a band that included Paul Shaffer, his longtime bassist Will Lee, who served as the musical director, guitarist Larry Campbell and session drummers Steve Gadd and Shawn Pelton. Whoopi Goldberg served as the host for the evening. The evening raised more than $2 million for God’s Love We Deliver, an organization that prepares and delivers, free of charge, “nutritious, high-quality meals to people who, because of their illness, are unable to provide or prepare meals for themselves. You can learn more about them at their website and see performances from the benefit in the linked article below.
