Sarah McLachlan to Perform at Flight 93 Memorial Dedication
Sarah McLachlan has earned the honor of performing at the dedication ceremony for the Flight 93 Memorial in Shanksville, Penn., the National Park Foundation said today in a press release.
The Grammy-winning singer will perform on September 10, one day before the 10-year anniversary of the September 11 attacks. The dedication is open to the public, and additional speakers and performers will be announced soon.
“We are honored to have Sarah McLachlan perform at the dedication of the Flight 93 National Memorial,” said Neil Mulholland, president and CEO of the National Park Foundation. “Her music will complement the commemoration ceremony as we memorialize the passengers and crew of Flight 93 and all of the heroes of September 11.”
The memorial is near the site where United Airlines Flight 93 went down, killing 40 passengers and crew members after several people attempted to stop terrorists who took control of the plane.
McLachlan's emotional ballad 'Angel' would seem to be a likely choice to play at such a somber ceremony. She has won three Grammys, for her hits 'Building a Mystery' and 'I Will Remember You.'
