Neil Diamond Performs at Parkinson’s Benefit 2 Years After Retiring Due to the Disease
Neil Diamond was back on the stage over the weekend for a very special cause.
The legendary singer and songwriter, 79, performed at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday, where he was honored for his impactful musical contributions to the world at Keep Memory Alive‘s 24th annual Power of Love Gala.
“I’m feeling great,” Diamond boasted at the event, which raised money for crucial funds and awareness for the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health. “This is an important thing they’re doing and I feel honored to be part of it and take part in it.”
This is the singing legend’s first public performance since he retired due to a Parkinson’s diagnosis in early 2018. The disease meant Diamond could no longer tour as he once did, but he is still writing & recording new songs. A new album is slated for an unspecified future date.
