This will mark the second time that Osteen and his wife, Victoria, have hosted "America's Night of Hope" at the current Yankee Stadium. In April 2009, a near-capacity crowd took part in a celebration of faith in what was the first non-baseball event ever hosted at the venue.

"Victoria and I love the people of New York," said Pastor Joel Osteen. "We're excited to be at Yankee Stadium again, and we believe people will be uplifted and filled with an expectation that their best days are still to come."
