Night of Covenant House Stars is a concert event that will raise funds for Covenant House, an international nonprofit that provides housing, food and health care to children and youth who are facing homelessness. Tony Award winner Audra McDonald and 60 Minutes correspondent John Dickerson — both members of the Covenant House board of directors — are teaming to co-host the concert. This year’s theme is “Stand Up, Stand Strong,” and the program will celebrate the resilience of young people and the heroism of front-line workers who have been providing service for them during the pandemic.
Night of Covenant House Stars will be streamed on CovenantHouse.org, Amazon Prime Video, Broadway on Demand, Facebook, YouTube, WNBC and via TodayTix.
“All of our Covenant House shelters and programs in 31 cities across six countries have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Covenant House president Kevin Ryan. “But with all the challenges we have remained open 24/7, creating new protocols to keep our resilient young people and our heroic front-line staff safe and healthy, maintaining critical services to support youth’s mental health and emotional health during the pandemic and serving over 1.8 million meals to young people experiencing homelessness. These stars have stepped up because they recognize that our young people don’t have the option to shelter at home without a home.”
