Oprah Winfrey, Brad Pitt, Sandra Bullock, Little Big Town, Tim McGraw, and many more celebrities and performers are set to appear on United We Sing: A Grammy Salute To The Unsung Heroes, a new special hosted by singer and actor Harry Connick, Jr., celebrating essential workers across America. The show will air on Sunday, June 21 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
Connick, Jr. and his filmmaker daughter, Georgia take a road trip in an RV to thank and celebrate essential workers who risk their own lives on a daily basis to keep us safe during the special, which will include performances by Jon Batiste, Connick, Jr., 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. The Connicks’ journey begins at their home in Connecticut, and after stopping in various cities along the way, they reach their final destination of Connick’s hometown of New Orleans.
The special will invite donors to contribute to charities that support underserved children, such as No Kid Hungry and the Ellis Marsalis Center for Music in New Orleans, as well as to the Recording Academy’s MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund.
