Jackson To Perform At 9/11 Concert

Alan Jackson will perform at the Washington National Cathedral Sept. 11 for  “A Concert for Hope,” marking the tenth anniversary of the September 11 attacks.

R&B legend Patti LaBelle and renowned mezzo-soprano Denyce Graves are also slated to perform. Following the 9/11 tragedy, the National Cathedral was called on to serve as a sacred national gathering place for mourning, reflection and prayer.

Jackson wrote and recorded “Where Were You (When The World Stopped Turning)” in the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks. The song was later released as the lead single from his album, Drive.

The special weekend commemoration will be shared with military men and women deployed across the country and around the world by the Pentagon Channel. “A Concert For Hope” will also air live on numerous ABC affiliates nationwide Sunday, Sept.11, at 8 pm.
