The Spirit of America benefit concert for the Scoliosis Care Foundation was held on March 30 at Caesars Atlantic City. The concert, which was taped for television, starred Daniel Rodriguez, the New York policeman who has sung at the Olympics and the White House, and featured guest performances by recording artist and Broadway star Linda Eder, 4-time Grammy winner Arturo Sandoval, platinum recording artist Phoebe Snow, opera soprano Aprile Milo and a 40-piece orchestra conducted by composer, arranger and producer Tom Scott.
The concert finale was a tribute to attending 9/11 heroes — police, firefighters, nurses and teamsters — who joined Daniel Rodriguez and the other performers onstage to sing America The Beautiful.
