The live stream will have a text-to-donate campaign to raise money for the Boston Resiliency Fund, Feeding America, and the Greater Boston Habitat for Humanity.

Dr. Jeffrey Leiden, the CEO of Vertex Pharmaceuticals, has been tapped to help the city distribute millions of dollars through the fund to nonprofits providing immediate support to Boston residents.

Special guest Bruce Springsteen will also join DKM remotely.

The group’s first live stream concert, “Streaming Up From Boston”, was held on St. Patrick’s Day and was watched more than 13 million times. During that event, more than $60,000 was raised for the Boston Resiliency Fund.
