The Concert to Face Addiction

Posted by WVIA Admin on

Airs Thursday, November 3rd at 8p on WVIA-TV

On October 4, 2015, tens of thousands of people came to the Nation’s Capital for a remarkable concert to raise awareness for addiction and recovery. It was the first time major musicians, politicians, athletes, journalists and authors came together in support of the 45 million Americans and their families affected by addiction to alcohol and other drugs.

The Concert to Face Addiction–on the National Mall at the foot of the Washington Monument–featured passionate and unforgettable performances from Joe Walsh, Steven Tyler, Sheryl Crow, Jason Isbell, The Fray, Jonathan Butler, John Rzeznik and Tommy Sims, with special messages from President Obama, Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr. Major funding support to bring this special to life was provided by the Morgan le Fay Dreams Foundation.
