1,000 Musicians Join Forces To Honor David Bowie With ‘Rebel Rebel’ Cover [Watch]

first_imgLast year, an ensemble called the Rockin’1000 made an impassioned rock and roll plea for the Foo Fighters to come to Cesena, Italy on their tour of Europe. The video naturally went viral and wound up being successful, as the Foos added a performance at Carisport on their Sonic Highways tour.When you have a thousand musicians already assembled, the next step is to put on a performance with all of them. That’s just what the Rockin’1000 did, when they hosted the “That’s Live” performance at Orogel Stadium last weekend. The band, split up into singers, guitarists, bassists, and drummers, performed a revue of rock and roll history.Among that revue was the song “Rebel Rebel,” played as a tribute to the late great David Bowie. Watch the video of that tribute below, as shared by the band.last_img read more

Bread of Life has been looking to expand for some time, and we were thrilled to have the opportunity to acquire a location so close to our long-term home at 700 East Randall Street. The new building will provide immediate storage relief for the thousands of pounds of food rescued by the organization every month.In 2011, Bread of Life partnered with Gleaners Food Bank, allowing the organization to receive donations of excess food that might otherwise go to waste from local businesses such as Walmart, Aldi, and Thrive Market. Bread of Life also regularly utilizes unused food from Greensburg Community Schools, KB Foods, Pizza Hut, and Subway in the service of our clients. We are extraordinarily blessed to live in such a generous community, where we receive such an incredible level of support.The purchase of the Meyer Building is a critically important step in the advancement of the mission of Bread of Life, which is to fight hunger in our community by providing a free, nutritious meal to anyone in need; provide a safe haven, where all are free of judgment; and help those in need, in the hope that they will in turn give back to the community. “We left it in God’s hands to meet our needs and He never disappoints when you wait on His guidance. We are so thankful!” states Melissa Foist, Executive Director of Bread of Life.If you would like to support the Greensburg Community Bread of Life, we always accept donations of both food and cash, and are always in need of volunteers to help prepare and serve meals.
