“The funds and awareness we will raise on May 22 will help Covenant House provide high-quality care to the thousands of youth who will come through our doors this year, and to advocate at every level of government and society for solutions to the root causes of youth homelessness,” said Covenant House President and CEO Bill Bedrossian.

This year’s gala will feature a special music performance from Grammy nominated Tank and the Bangas. The New Orleans-based band is known for their vibrant blend of R&B, funk, hip-hop, gospel, and spoken word poetry. After winning the 2017 NPR Tiny Desk Contest, the band was nominated in the Best New Artist category for the 2020 Grammy Awards. The band’s third studio album, Red Balloon received a nomination for “Best Progressive R&B Album” at the 2023 Grammy Awards.

Eric Hutcherson, Executive Vice President and Chief People and Inclusion Officer at Universal Music Group will receive the prestigious Covenant House Board Service Award for the time and talent he has given as a true champion for youth experiencing homelessness.

Delta Air Lines will be honored by Covenant House for ten years of commitment and support of youth experiencing homelessness, not only through much-needed funding but by providing job training and placements for young people overcoming homelessness.

“Night of Covenant House Stars is a powerful evening where we bring together our biggest supporters and showcase why our work remains critical in cities around the globe,” said Bedrossian. “We are so grateful to our partners at Delta Air Lines and to all our celebrities and supporters who believe with us that no young person should experience homelessness.”
