“After 15 months of virtually no live music, we couldn’t be happier and more excited to bring a world class benefit concert like LOVE ROCKS NYC back to New York City, and to host and livestream it from the famed Beacon Theatre,” says Love Rocks NYC co-executive producer Greg Williamson. “To make it even more special, the fact that this show benefits God’s Love We Deliver, is super special and very gratifying.”
Executive produced by international fashion designer John Varvatos and prominent benefit concert producers Greg Williamson and Nicole Rechter, the concert to be hosted by Jeff Garlin, Michael Imperioli and Bernie Williams, with special guest Tina Fey, supporting and honoring the work of the New York-based not-for profit-organization, which is celebrating its 36th anniversary.
This year’s concert event will also pay tribute to the frontline workers who have played a critical role in supporting New York City during the pandemic. God’s Love We Deliver, which was founded during the AIDS pandemic in 1985, has been an essential services provider during COVID-19, and its staff and volunteers have worked tirelessly to continue to cook and home-deliver medically tailored meals to its clients living with severe illness, meeting the ever-growing demand for its services.

Since launching in 2017, the annual LOVE ROCKS NYC concerts have brought together an astonishing lineup of musical talent and have helped raise more than $13 million dollars to date and have helped to fund more than 1.3 million meals to New Yorkers in need. The benefit concert highlights the charity’s continued success of providing life-sustaining meals and nutrition counseling for people in the New York Metropolitan area living with severe illness.
