Christian musicians have announced that a special benefit gala honoring Israel will take place this spring at Carnegie Hall.
Award-winning and well-respected artists Dino, Larnelle Harris, Sandi Patty, and Robert Stearns will gather on April 11, 2013 during the "Honoring Israel at Carnegie Hall" event.
Pianist Dino Kartsonakis and his wife Cheryl are hosting the special evening.
"Anti-Semitism is on the rise, and Israel is now surrounded by nations committed to her destruction," said the artist in a press release. "Cheryl and I have always prioritized praying and working for the peace of Jerusalem. My friends, it is vital that we stand together."
The concert will commence at 8 p.m. at the world famous venue. The night will also see performances from the Philadelphia Boys Choir, Denver and the Mile High Orchestra, and The Christian Cultural Center Chorale, in addition to the musical talents of Stearns, operatic tenor Daniel Rodriguez, and Grammy Award-winning singer Patty.
Furthermore, Stearns, who founded Eagles' Wings, added that "Honoring Israel at Carnegie Hall" will pack a huge punch.
"The evening of music will celebrate our nation's longstanding and unbreakable bond with Israel as one of Manhattan's most prestigious venues," said Stearn, a global leader in Jewish-Christian relations.
"There has never been a time in our nation's history that our public and private bond with Israel has been more critical," he continued. "With this historic event, we hope to make it clear that New York stands with Israel."
All proceeds from the event will go toward "Hope for Zion," a humanitarian non-profit that benefits hungry Jews, Arabs and Druze in Israel, and toward helping to build a study and prayer center in Migdal Arbel, Israel.
