Charlottesville Unites for Concert
Last night at UVA’s Scott Stadium, our community came together for the Concert for Charlottesville to celebrate unity and love. Thousands of people attended the concert hosted by Dave Matthews. At the beginning of the concert, Matthews presented Susan Bro, the mother of Heather Heyer, the protester killed on August 12th in Charlottesville.
During the event, attendees enjoyed performances by Pharrell Williams, The Roots, Ariana Grande, Justin Timberlake, Chris Stapleton, Brittany Howard of Alabama Shakes and Cage The Elephant. Coldplay’s Chris Martin and Jonny Buckland and Stevie Wonder also made surprise appearances on the stage.
The evening was filled with amazing talent and a feeling of community as concert attendees lit up the sky with their phones, swaying to the performances. All proceeds from the concert will be donated to the Charlottesville Area Community Foundation. If you would like to make a donation, click here. We are so thankful to have been able to be a part of such a wonderful and positive event.
