From Patti Smith Covers the Beatles Classic ‘She’s Leaving Home’ – Rolling Stone, March 16, 2023:
Patti Smith wasn’t part of the official bill, but she came out midway through the night to deliver a stunning rendition of “She’s Leaving Home.” It was her first time performing the 1967 Beatles classic, and she added to the song’s poignancy by tacking on a new verse delivered from the perspective of the young girl that runs away from home, leaving her parents emotionally shattered. “Dear mother and father,” she sang. “I’m sorry if I hurt you/But I had to leave to find what you already have/Companionship, love/To find laughter/To find freedom/And to find, most of all, myself.”

A DAZZLING ARRAY OF A-LIST ARTISTS COME TOGETHER TO PERFORM
THE MUSIC OF PAUL MCCARTNEY AT CARNEGIE HALL
MUSIC IMPRESARIO AND PHILANTHROPIST MICHAEL DORF’S 18nd ANNUAL MUSIC-OF TRIBUTE HAS CUMULATIVELY RAISED OVER $1.6 MILLION DOLLARS FOR MUSIC EDUCATION PROGRAMS FOR UNDERSERVED YOUTH
The 18nd Annual Music Of fundraising performance, produced by Michael Dorf Presents, will spotlight the work of Paul McCartney and take place March 15, 2023 at one of the world’s most venerated venues, Carnegie Hall. McCartney’s music has been bringing people together for decades as a member of the Beatles, Wings, and an acclaimed solo artist. His tender ballads, frisky rockers, and his always reflective and deeply insightful lyrics have soundtracked the lives of many generations over six decades. The Music Of Paul McCartney will feature a gathering of iconic family and friends who will celebrate McCartney’s legacy while also raising funds to support music education programs for underserved youth. VIP packages with the best seats in the house include the afterparty, among other perks. This magical night of McCartney’s music is now on sale at musicof.org.
The era-defining two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and singer-songwriter’s astounding career includes having written or co-written a record 32 songs that have topped the Billboard Hot 100. The Music Of Paul McCartney will feature Lake Street Dive, Allison Russell, Bettye LaVette, Peter Asher, Ingrid Michaelson, Glen Hansard, Lyle Lovett, The Cactus Blossoms, and Shovels & Rope among others, each performing a song from the vast catalog of this prolific songwriting legend.
“What an honor to work with one of the greatest singer/songwriters in history and have him interested in our annual show at Carnegie Hall. We have missed doing this during the pandemic and looking forward to this special night. Of course, we will miss Rita Houston of WFUV, our longtime MC who passed from a battle with cancer and to whom we will also be paying tribute this year. Christine Stone of SiriusXM will be joining us this year,“ said Michael Dorf.
Previous Music Of tributes have spotlighted the work of Carly Simon, Prince, Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, the Rolling Stones, Aretha Franklin, Van Morrison, REM, and David Byrne, among others. Every year, the tributes have sold out and contributed 100% of the net proceeds—approximately $100,000—from the evening to the following non-profit organizations: Music Will (formally Little Kids Rock), Young Audiences NY, FIXS, Church Street School of Music, The Center for Arts Education, D’Addario Foundation, Sonic Arts for All, Save the Music, Midori & Friends, Grammy in the Schools, the Orchestra Now, and the Newport Jazz Kids.
