Global soul star John Legend will be headlining Northwell Health’s upcoming “Side By Side: A Celebration of Service” two-day festival, with Jason Derulo opening the event.
“Side By Side” Festival is Back After Two Years
“Side By Side: A Celebration of Service” will be hosting a benefit concert at UBS Arena on Sunday, May 29. The evening will feature R&B star Jason Derulo as the opening act for the event and John Legend as the headliner.
As part of Memorial Day weekend and the return of New York’s Fleet Week; this year’s fourth annual event builds on Northwell’s commitment to honor the resilience of our nation’s active-duty military and veterans. Also, their families with a one-of-a-kind music experience to thank our heroes for their service.
“Memorial Day weekend is a dedicated time every year to reflect on the sacrifices so many Americans have made in our country’s history;” said Michael Dowling, president, and CEO of Northwell. “We should never take for granted the freedoms we enjoy in this country; or forget our heroes in the armed forces who will stop at nothing to protect those freedoms. We are honored to host ‘Side by Side: A Celebration of Service’ for those very reasons. To honor our service members.”
“We are so excited to host this fun-filled event with a live audience both in the streets of New York City and on the stage of UBS Arena with John Legend and Jason Derulo,” said Juan Serrano, vice president of the health system’s Military Liaison Services and US Marine veteran. “This is a two-day celebration of our country’s military service members, but it also signifies Northwell’s commitment to our veterans for the other 363 days of the year. We will always stand by our heroes in uniform and their families. We owe them our full support and a debt of gratitude.”
