Hosted by Hollywood Legend Tom Hanks, Celebrating America is a post-inauguration concert with a difference.
With performances from ‘iconic venues around the country’, it will be on display, among other things Jon Bon Jovi, Foo Fighters, John Legend, Eva Longoria, Demi Lovato, Bruce Springsteen and Kerry Washington. Ant Clemons and Justin Timberlake are also lining up to sing their collaboration ‘Better Days,’ in what Timberlake described as “our way of doing the little we could to encourage everyone to stay hopeful and keep working towards a better future. “
A few months ago @AntClemons and I wrote BETTER DAYS. This song was our way of doing the little we could to encourage everyone to stay hopeful and keep working for a better future. I am honored to announce that we will be running it for the inauguration. pic.twitter.com/aes5gXdEww
