A national nonprofit is honoring America’s veterans with an exclusive virtual concert this week. Musicians on Call has teamed up with Wrangler to host Concert For Veterans Presented by Wrangler, for veterans in all Veterans Affairs facilities nationwide for Veterans Day.
This Veterans Day, Musicians On Call is delivering hope and appreciation to our nation’s Veterans and caregivers through the healing power of music. Concert For Veterans Presented by Wrangler features performances and messages of gratitude from some of the best and brightest artists in music.
The concert features Wynonna, Peter Frampton, Darius Rucker, Sara Evans, Lainey Wilson, Michael Ray, Striking Matches, Jameson Rodgers, Caylee Hammack, Sarahbeth Taite, Catie Offerman and more, and is hosted by Big Sky Music Group recording artist Stephanie Quayle from the world-famous The Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, Tenn.
“This year has been especially hard on hospitalized Veterans and their caregivers who have had to go without the regular support of their loved ones and volunteers in the hospital due to the pandemic,” said Musicians On Call President & CEO Pete Griffin. “Musicians On Call’s live music programs have always meant a lot to our VA partners and, while we’ve missed visiting with the Veterans in person, we are glad to have remained connected during this hard time through our virtual programs.”
Some of the top names in bull riding also made an appearance from the Pendleton Round-up in Oregon, and Michael Ray performed for Veterans and staff at the Phoenix VA Medical Center during a virtual program in honor of Veterans Day.
Citi will provide special access to highlights from the concert to its card members through its website.
“The pandemic has impacted all of us,” said Citi Interim CMO Tina Davis, “but it has disproportionately impacted vulnerable groups, including our country’s hospitalized veterans and their caregivers. Citi is deeply proud to help spread the healing power of music this Veteran’s Day to all those who tune into the virtual concert.”
Concert For Veterans Presented by Wrangler is also sponsored by Citi, Rip It Energy, Electronic Express and Gibson Gives.
