“It’s been amazing to see the public’s incredible response to Love Rocks NYC and to our beneficiary, God’s Love We Deliver,” Love Rocks NYC co-executive producer, Greg Williamson, said in a statement as per Rolling Stone. “There is no roadmap for putting on a concert of this kind. It comes down to a terrific team, a wonderful charity, very hard work and everyone being in it for the right reasons. It’s been an honor, a privilege and a game changer for me to be involved in this project on an annual basis.”
“When we started Love Rocks NYC four years ago, there was never a thought that it would become one of the most anticipated concerts of the year,” added co-executive producer John Varvatos. “All of these incredible artists give their time, talent, passion, and hearts for this amazing cause. Music is a connecter that brings the artists, fans, and people in need together.”
