In 2009, the David Lynch Foundation staged the Change Begins Within benefit concert at New York’s legendary Radio City Music Hall. The show helped raise funds to teach at-risk children to meditate to change their lives from within.
Hosted by David Lynch and Laura Dern, it was a star-studded sold out evening that featured unique performances from a cast including Sheryl Crow, Donovan, Eddie Vedder, Moby, Ben Harper, Angelo Badalamenti, Betty LaVette, Jim James and Jerry Seinfeld. The culmination of the evening saw sets from Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr before they joined forces for a grand finale.
The once-in-a-lifetime show is now available to own with the aim to continue raising funds and awareness for the Foundation’s mission to heal suffering from post-traumatic stress amongst veterans, survivors of domestic violence, and at-risk children.
In the videos below, Paul McCartney talks to David Lynch about his experience with transcendental meditation and the Foundation’s mission.
