Roger Waters' Stand Up For Heroes Benefit Performance Goes Online

(hennemusic) Roger Waters was one of the featured performers at the 7th annual Stand Up For Heroes benefit as part of The New York Comedy Festival on Wednesday, and video of his appearance is available.

Waters was accompanied by a group of injured soldiers who are also musicians for his full set, which included covers of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah", John Lennon's "Imagine" and Sam Cooke's "A Change Is Gonna Come", before ending with Pink Floyd's "Comfortably Numb."

Organized by the Bob Woodruff Foundation, the event at the Theater at Madison Square Garden raises funds for injured service members, veterans and their families. In its first six years, the event raised more than $16 million to support wounded warriors and their families. Watch the video here.
