The mission’s director of outreach James Macklin spoke about the day in a press release.

“Chris Martin proved once again the power of one person to make a difference through The Bowery Mission. As the temperatures drop and we serve thousands of lonely people during the holidays, Chris has lifted our spirits today.”

Chris raised $4,300 for the shelter with the impromptu concert and has set up a donation campaign as well.
