Chelsea Clinton is lending a hand to help rebuild East Village’s historic Middle Collegiate Church after it burned down last December.

Clinton will join artists and leaders including Tamika Mallory, Marianne Williamson, Melissa Harris-Perry, Norah Jones, Ellie Kemper, Aunjunaue Ellis, Heather Headley and Ani DiFranco for “March to Rise: A Benefit Concert for Middle Church” on March 25.

Titus Burgess and Bevy Smith will host the live fundraiser from Bloomingdale’s Studio 59 and tickets are “pay-what-you-can.”

Over a century old, the church was destroyed when a massive fire spread from an abandoned building on East 7th Street on Dec. 5.

The iconic New York Liberty Bell in the church tower survived the fire. The progressive reformed protestant church preaches “just love,” and opens its doors to everyone.

“I’ll be blunt: We need your help. Though the news cameras have left, our sanctuary still lies in ashes. And this beautiful congregation deserves resurrection,” senior minister Rev. Jacqui Lewis said.
