The special will also be available on iHeartMedia radio stations and its app, Apple Music, Apple TV App, Amazon Music, Twitch, NowThis, YouTube, Twitter, TIDAL and Facebook, and more to be announced.

Hosted by Keys, America Ferrera, and Kerry Washington, the show brings together artists, musicians, performers, and community leaders for a nonpartisan celebration of American democracy, with the goal of uplifting the power of civic action and celebrating the precious value of every single citizen’s right to vote.

“The purpose for this special is to remind and inspire all Americans of the power of their voice and their vote,” said Keys. “It’s a challenging time but we have the opportunity to continue to show up and shape the world we want to live in. In a democracy, every vote counts, so we want to encourage and uplift each other and remember we all have a say in the direction of our country because everyone’s participation matters. Also, for many young people across the country, this is their first time voting so we want to make sure they understand the magnitude of this time and learn why this is one of the most exciting moments in the Democratic process.”
