In remembrance of the horrific September 11th attacks 20 years ago, a commemorative charity concert has been planned in New York.

The one-night event, titled the “Never Forget Concert,” is scheduled for August 21st at the Jones Beach Theater. The show boasts a star-studded lineup featuring The Chainsmokers, Wyclef Jean, Journey, Steve Miller Band, and Ann Wilson of the legendary rock band Heart, among others.

Proceeds from the concert will benefit the Tunnel to Towers Foundation, a nonprofit that builds mortgage-free smart homes for catastrophically injured veterans and first responders. The organization will donate tickets to 9/11 first responders, military personnel, and Gold Star families.
