D2D Presents: We Are the World Mini Concert

2020 has been a year full of experiences.  Maybe you’ve been quarantined all spring and attended school online. Maybe someone you care about is an essential worker, or got sick, or lost a job. Regardless of what you have been through, 2020 was a difficult and challenging year for everyone navigating in these uncertain times. 

However, as the year comes to a close, maybe we also have something hopeful as a result of the pandemic - closer relationship with a family member, a new hobby, or a greater sense of community needs.

It is with this sense of hope that we continue to push forward, and as we celebrate the upcoming Christmas season, the “We Are the World” Charity Concert, welcomed 9 musical performers who were past participants of America's Got Talent or The Voice. Using their musical talents, these amazing artists brought hope, courage and positive energy to make our community better while supporting kids at BC Children’s Hospital Foundation and Make-A-Wish Foundation.
