A special benefit concert immediately follows a public talk by the His Holiness the Dalai Lama and features an original song written and performed by multiple artists, especially for His Holiness.

Rahman, Andy Grammer, Matisyahu, Natasha Bedingfield, Swizz Beatz, Cyndi Lauper, Bebe Winans, Angelique Kidjo, Voices of Afghanistan, Souad Massi, Engelbert Humperdinck, Roberta Flack, David Sanborn, Joanne Shenandoah, David Crosby, Nelly Furtado, Andy Madadian and Liel Kolet. Special guests include Whoopi Goldberg, the evening’s emcee, and NBC News’ Ann Curry.
Proceeds from the concert will be used to advance international relief efforts and fund a new scholarship named for Bassel Al Shahade, the SU graduate student killed earlier this year in Syria while making a documentary film on the violence in his homeland.
