Free Concert To Mark 9/11

Volunteers and members of the 9/11 community will be getting tickets to a free New York City concert planned for this year's anniversary of the attacks.

Organizers announced plans for the concert on Thursday. The event will honor the 9/11 community and volunteers who have joined the "United We Serve" initiative launched by President Barack Obama and his wife.

The tribute at The Beacon Theatre will feature actor Gary Sinise, talk-show host Jimmy Fallon and musical acts including Gavin DeGraw, the Harlem Boys and Girls Choir, and The Roots.

This year is the first time the anniversary is being officially recognized as a National Day of Service and Remembrance.
