"Artists at every level are invaluable to society. They entertain, inspire, calm and transform humanity. Many artists put into action the virtue of generosity, 'giving is receiving,' sharing their talents without compensation. Without recognizing and supporting the economic welfare of the giver, the artist, we all lose. Take a moment to imagine a world without music, dancing, singing, paintings, pictures or books in any form," says Hendryx.
U.K. singer/songwriter Bobby Long will also appear.
