A virtual event raising awareness and funds for Epidermolysis Bullosa, a rare genetic condition that causes easy blistering of the skin, will see two new songs by Pearl Jam’s frontman Eddie Vedder. The event, organized by Eddie and Jill Vedder, will host a series of big names to help to fight the incurable disease. Vedder will play two new songs during the show.
Among the stars who will appear in the event are Billie Eilish, Chris Hemsworth, Judd Apatow, Bradley Cooper, Laura Dern, Adam Sandler, and Willie Nelson. The event will be an hour-long show and it will take place on Wednesday, November 18th. It will stream for free on Pearl Jam’s site, their YouTube channel, and their Facebook page.
Jill Vedder thanked the artists contributing to Venture Into Cures and said that the event will educate the public about the hardships that kids and families who deal with EB are facing. “EB Research Partnership’s mission is to find a cure for EB, and this event will help bring us one step closer to making that mission a reality by adding momentum to the work being done,” said Vedder.
