Candace Cameron Bure is teaming up with her brother Kirk Cameron to host a benefit concert to “raise spirits” during the coronavirus pandemic.
“My brother called me and he’s like, ‘We got to do this, but with songs that have meaning and purpose and actually give hope from the guy who gives us everything and provides it all and comforts us and helps with our worries,'” Cameron Bure stated. “So, we got on the phone and started calling all of our Christian artist friends.”
The benefit concert will feature performances by Casting Crowns, Mercy Me, Kari Jobe & Cody Caries, Newsboys, Natalie Grant, Matthew West, For King and Country and Gloria Gaynor. Inspirational messages will be provided by Bishop T.D. Jakes, Kristen Chenoweth, Franklin Graham, Lysa TerKeurst and more.
While all the proceeds will go to the non-profit humanitarian work of Samaritan’s Purse, the Fuller House actress made it clear that people of all beliefs are encouraged to tune in.
“It doesn’t matter what denomination you are, it’s just like come listen to this encouraging, great, wonderful music with your family and be lifted, be comforted and strengthened,” she added. “And that’s why we did it.”
