On September 23, chart-topping country music star Craig Morgan will host a livestream concert on Facebook to benefit America’s 9-1-1 emergency call takers. 

The concert will be a highlight of NENA Ignite, a virtual conference hosted by NENA: The 9-1-1 Association. The free-to-attend and open-to-all concert will be broadcast live on Morgan’s Facebook page on the 23rd at 4:00 p.m. CST. 100% of funds raised will support education and wellness programs for hard-working 9-1-1 public-safety professionals in communities across the United States.

The concert is presented thanks to a partnership between NENA and DATAMARK, a leading North American business focused on public safety, GIS and Next Generation (NG) 9-1-1 technology.

Morgan is a former Emergency Medical Technician and 17-year U.S. Army veteran whose musical career spans 20 years. His hits include "That's What I Love About Sunday,” which spent four weeks at the top of the Billboard country charts, as well as “Almost Home,” "Redneck Yacht Club,” "Little Bit of Life,” and "International Harvester." His ninth studio album, God, Family, Country, was released in May. 

Morgan is also known for his philanthropy, having supported many causes related to children, veterans, and law enforcement. 

“America’s 9-1-1 workers are the first first responders in the public-safety chain, and we need to salute them alongside other public-safety and healthcare workers,” said Craig Morgan. 

“On behalf of the thousands of 9-1-1 professionals whom we serve, we are grateful to Craig Morgan and DATAMARK for partnering with us on this concert and fundraiser,” said NENA CEO Brian Fontes. “In times like these especially, we need to keep our 9-1-1 professionals healthy and well supported,” Fontes added. 

“DATAMARK is proud to sponsor this event and support the unsung heroes of public safety, America’s 9-1-1 professionals,” said Craig Stein, Director, Strategic Partnerships for DATAMARK.
