The night will feature performances from renowned artists like Norah Jones, Ellie Kemper, Emily King, Aunjanue Ellis, Daniel Breaker, Ani DiFranco, Elizabeth Stanley, Heather Headley and Branch Woodman as well as inspirational words from leaders like Chelsea Clinton, Linda Sarsour, Marianne Williamson, Melissa Harris-Perry, V (formerly Eve Ensler), Gabby Bernstein, Michelle Hurd, Jacqui Lewis and Paula Stone Williams.

A six-alarm fire early on Dec. 5 destroyed the southeast corner of Second Avenue and Seventh Street, including the neighboring Middle Collegiate Church.   

Church officials have vowed to rebuild their sanctuary.
