Foo Fighters and Jon Bon Jovi are among the artists who will perform in a televised event for the opening of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris this coming Wednesday (January 20). “Celebrating America” will be hosted by Tom Hanks and will include additional guest appearances by Bruce Springsteen, John Legend, Justin Timberlake, Ant Clemons and Demi Lovato, as well as actors Eva Longoria and Kerry Washington.
Longoria and Washington will present segments throughout the night, ranging from stories of young people making a difference in their communities to musical performances. Foo Fighters, Legend and Springsteen will perform from iconic venues across the country.
“Celebrating America” will air from 8: 30-10: 30 pm. ET / PT on January 20 and will showcase the endurance, heroism and unified commitment of the American people to come together as a nation to heal and rebuild. The show will feature commentary from Biden and Harris and will include commentary, performances that represent the rich diversity and vast talent America offers, and American heroes who are helping their fellow citizens overcome this crisis.
The show will be broadcast live on ABC, CBS, CNN, NBC, MSNBC and PBS. It will be broadcast live on the Presidential Inaugural Committee (PIC) social media channels: YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and Twitch. PIC’s streaming partners, including Amazon Prime Video, Microsoft Bing, Fox NewsNOW, and AT&T DIRECTV and U-verse, will also stream the show live.
Over the course of five days of programming, “America United” activities will honor our traditions while allowing more Americans than ever before to participate from their own homes. These activities include “United We Serve,” a National Day of Service on January 18, Martin Luther King Jr Day; a National COVID-19 Monument to Lost Lives on January 19; and the official Opening Ceremonies, a wreath at Arlington National Cemetery, and a “Parade Across America” on January 20. The events will culminate with the “Celebrating America” program. The PIC will also install an extensive public art exhibit, a “Field of Flags,” which will span the National Mall to 13th Street, to represent the American people who cannot travel to Washington, D.C.
The 2021 Presidential Inaugural Committee (PIC) is a 501 (c) (4) non-profit organization and a separate entity of the Biden-Harris Transition charged with planning and executing activities related to the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris.
