Alan Jackson’s “Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning)” resonated throughout the nation on Sunday, as well as in the aftermath of the devastating events of September 11th (2001). The country superstar took part in A Concert for Hope, performing “Where Were You” right before President Obama addressed the nation on the 10th anniversary of 9/11. The concert, which took place at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. (it was originally scheduled to originate from the National Cathedral), was the finale for “A Call to Compassion,” a three-day event which began on Friday.
- R-&-B legend Patti LaBelle and renowned opera star Denyce Graves also performed during the special tribute.
