    The Washington National Cathedral announced plans for "A Call to Compassion," a three-day commemoration of the tenth anniversary of 9/11. On Sunday evening, Sept. 11, country music superstar Alan Jackson will be performing at the Cathedral as part of "A Concert For Hope," along with R&B legend Patti LaBelle and renowned mezzo soprano Denyce Graves. In the days following the 9/11 tragedy, the National Cathedral was called on to serve as a sacred national gathering place for mourning, reflection and prayer. As the country marks the tenth anniversary of that tragic day, the Cathedral will once again open its doors to the nation and offer a weekend of programming to honor the dead, address the continued need for national healing, and foster the desire to create a more hopeful and just world.

    This special wee-end (Sept. 9-11) long commemoration will be shared with military men and women deployed across the country and around the world by the Pentagon Channel. "A Concert For Hope" will also air on numerous ABC affiliates nationwide live Sunday, Sept.11, 8 PM – 9 PM EST. Check local listings.

    People across the country and around the world may participate in any of the events, which will be streamed live and available to watch online here.
