Craig Morgan and American Idol winner Laine Hardy will give virtual performances during a special WABC-TV 7 broadcast of the New York City Veterans Day Commemoration on Nov. 11th. The New York City Veterans Day Parade first marched in 1919 and is historically the largest commemoration of service in America.
Craig said, “We owe so much to our veterans, the men and women who serve or have served our country. It’s so important that, even with the challenges of 2020, we are still able to recognize the sacrifices of the U.S. Military in a big way, and I’m honored to be a part of that.”
Laine said, “I have such a huge appreciation for the veterans who have done so much for our country. My Grandfather served in the Army. So to be able to honor him and service members like him, means so much to me."
This year’s commemoration will be largely a virtual event, with a symbolic presence on New York City’s Fifth Avenue.
