The benefit will provide money for a variety of programs including scholarships for nurses and their children.
Whoopi Goldberg will host the concert with special appearances by Oprah Winfrey and Billy Crystal.
Taylor Swift will donate a signed collectible edition “Folklore” guitar, which will be auctioned for the benefit of the Nurses Heroes Foundation.
The nurses of New York’s Northwell Health will be the first beneficiaries of the concert. The event will also showcase 50 nurses from the hospital in an ensemble performance with several celebrities.
The concert will be produced by Emilio Estefan and Times Square Live Media.
