Backstory to The Beatles Tribute:  This kid has been waiting six years to do a tribute to The Beatles.  The face of the Foundation, Hudson, who is now eleven years old, will not only be our co-host for the benefit but will also be a featured musician playing drums on five tunes.  He has been singing and playing their music for over half of his life now, but this is the first time he will get to play with other musicians for an audience - no more having to sing from the rooftops!  The Beatles have such a profound way to move all ages and walks of listeners.  We are so excited to finally have this opportunity to bring all of us together to celebrate their music!
