The concert features superstars from the world of country music (Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Emmylou Harris, Martina McBride), Broadway (Brian Stokes Mitchell, Laura Osnes, Cheyenne Jackson, Sherie Rene Scott, Montego Glover, and Benjamin Walker), pop (Jennifer Hudson, Carole King, Train’s Pat Monahan), ballet (Marcello Gomes and Luciana Paris), classical (Joshua Bell, Arturo Sandoval), and gospel (Mavis Staples).  The highlights include duets and trios — Staples and King perform King’s “You’ve Got a Friend,” and she is joined by Hudson and McBride for “Natural Woman.”  Haggard and Nelson sing “Pancho & Lefty” and are joined by Emmylou Harris for Haggard’s classic “Ramblin’ Fever.”
