While we have time to reflect, we would like to thank all health care workers and those on the front lines helping during this time of crisis.”

Just before the broadcast begins, Eddie Money’s children Dez, Jesse and Julian will provide opening remarks and give an acoustic performance from their home. All three opened for and performed alongside their father on tour.
