Darkness RISING: Live is our annual music and mental health event featuring the Black Broadway community performing inspirational songs for Black mental health, and Black mental health providers as our guest speakers. The concert benefits Darkness RISING Project Nonprofit, a 501(c)3 organization that provides direct mental health resources to the Black community.

DR Live NYC is sponsored by the Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund and Brooklyn Arts Council. DR Live: 6 NC
