Amazing Tribute
4 June 2008 | by joy-164See all my reviews

A truly amazing tribute to America and the strength and character that made this country what it is today, especially in the wake of 911. The actors and musicians are incredible in their performances and relaying the stories of those heroes that gave beyond what was humanly possible on that day. Outstanding performance by Céline Dion, Bon Jovi, Sting, and Billy Joel. Julia Roberts emotional tribute brought tears to my eyes. And nobody performs "New York State of Mind" like Billy Joel. The audience, who remained silent after each performance couldn't contain themselves when Bill sang this song. They started clapping. They also clapped after Jon Bon Jovi gave his heartfelt performance of "Livin on a prayer." Fabulous DVD. It's the first time I've seen it, and you can be sure I'll watch it again!
