How Love Rocks NYC Pivoted at the 11th Hour In the Face of Coronavirus

Tanya Blount-Trotter, Michael Trotter Jr., Joss Stone, Marcus King, Cyndi Lauper, Susan Tedeschi, Karen Pearl, Jimmie Vaughan, and Jimmy Vivino perform onstage during the Fourth Annual LOVE ROCKS NYC Benefit Concert For God's Love We Deliver at Beacon Theatre on March 12, 2020 in New York City.


"What we did last night was unprecedented."

That's how Greg Williamson, one of the masterminds behind the charity show Love Rocks NYC, described their latest iteration. Held Thursday (March 12) night at New York's Beacon Theatre and benefiting the charity God's Love We Deliver, the all-star concert put in place plans to livestream the proceedings and forgo an audience in the face of New York's recently announced ban on mass gatherings in the face of the coronavirus.
