The Lincoln Awards!

“I’ll be performing with Arturo Sandoval a song that I wrote called Liquid Spirit. It’s about the release of energy and love and culture and soul. I’m honored to perform for the helpers of the helpers,” Grammy Award-winning American jazz vocalist, songwriter, and actor Gregory Porter told Hollywood on the Potomac at the All-Star Concert at the John F. Kennedy Center for Performing Arts where the entertainment community gathered to celebrate our military, veterans, wounded warriors, caregivers and military families while saluting the Lincoln Award recipients.

The Lincoln Awards is the first event of its kind to recognize outstanding achievement and excellence in providing opportunities and support to our nation’s veterans and military families. The concert will be broadcast in Spring 2015 to coincide with the 150th Anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s landmark Second Inaugural Address on March 4, 2015, at which Lincoln remarked, “With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation’s wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.”
