Sunday afternoon’s (Nov. 5), Vegas Cares show will honor the victims and first responders of the tragic gun massacre on Oct. 1. It will be unprecedented in our city’s entertainment history. It’s almost a “Night of 100 Stars.”

Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Jewel has been added to the roster of all-star performers that now also includes comedian Brad Garrett, David Copperfield, Human Nature, Lance Burton, Kendra Wilkinson and co-star Jai Alexander, Mike Tyson, Penn & Teller, Blue Man Group and Cirque du Soleil’s Treasure Island cast of “Mystere,” Rich Little, Tom Green and the Vegas Golden Knights.

There also will be a reunion of the former “Jubilee” dancers in a routine that salutes Elvis Presley and “Viva Las Vegas.” In addition, Miss Universe, Miss USA and Miss Nevada, Lauren York, will appear in advance of their 66th annual pageant here on Nov. 26, plus longtime residents and The Mirage headliners Siegfried & Roy will make a special appearance.

“Nowhere will you find a better example of Las Vegas community pride than within our entertainment industry,” said Ken Henderson, CEO of BESTAgency, which is producing the benefit. “We were all looking for a way to be part of the healing process and there’s no better way than for each of these incredible entertainers to share their gift with our city.”

Other stars will form men’s and women’s chorales with Keith Thompson, formerly “Jersey Boys” conductor as the show’s men’s choir musical director and pianist Bill Fayne as the women’s musical director.

“It’s safe to say you will see collaborations between these artists that you’ve never seen before and will never see again,” Ken added. “It will be a performance to remember.”
