Sources from Hollywood Reporter reveal that CBS and the Recording Academy are presenting a two-hour special called United We Sing: A Grammy Tribute to the Unsung Heroes on June 21 at 7:00 p.m. CT on CBS.
The event will feature Harry Connick Jr. and his daughter, Georgia, as they take an RV road trip cross-country from Connecticut to New Orleans. Along the way, they will meet with essential workers and hear their brave stories of fighting on the frontlines during the COVID-19 pandemic.
In addition to Connick, the tribute will also feature Sandra Bullock, Drew Brees, Queen Latifah, Brad Pitt, Oprah Winfrey, and Renée Zellweger as they honor the public service of America's heroes with a special message.
Musicians including Connick, Jon Batiste, Andra Day, John Fogerty, Jamie Foxx, Herbie Hancock, Cyndi Lauper, Little Big Town, Branford Marsalis, Wynton Marsalis, Dave Matthews, Tim McGraw, Rockin' Dopsie, Irma Thomas, and Trombone Shorty will perform at the event as well.
United We Sing endorses charities benefiting underserved children, such as No Kid Hungry and the Ellis Marsalis Center for Music in New Orleans, as well as the MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund, an organization of the Recording Academy.
