In the midst of an unprecedented pandemic, many rituals we hold dear are no longer possible. As we find our footing in this new terrain, faith leaders have enlisted New York City artists and Lincoln Center to offer a weekly Memorial For Us All. Music unlocks thoughts, feelings, and memories that unite and free us. These memorials allow music to begin to heal us all, as it has in so many rituals since the beginning of time.
The eighth community remembrance is led by singer-songwriter Gaby Moreno on Sunday, June 21 at 6:00 pm ET.
Born and raised in Guatemala, Moreno grew up inspired by artists such as Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone, and Aretha Franklin. She immersed herself in blues, R&B and soul and learned to speak English by singing. Her concert features original songs sung in English and Spanish, plus “Yo Vengo a Ofrecer Mi Corazón“ by Fito Páez.
Memorial For Us All is a secular community remembrance, welcoming all to celebrate the lives of those who have left us too soon.
