A roster of entertainers including Kid Rock, Cee-Lo Green, Carrie Underwood and Reba McEntire is on deck to salute former President George H.W. Bush and the importance of volunteer service on Monday.
The event, themed “All Together Now – A Celebration of Service,” also will feature Garth Brooks, Miranda Cosgrove, Sheryl Crow, Heather Headley, Jonny Lang, Sam Moore, Jim Nantz, Brad Paisley, Darius Rucker and Mavis Staples.
It takes place at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.
Former President Bill Clinton is the event’s honorary co-chair. Since leaving office he and the 41st president have forged a friendship and have teamed up to rally Americans to respond to those in need. They have partnered on efforts such as Hurricane Katrina relief and the U.S. response to the 2004 tsunami, for example.
Former presidents George W. Bush and Jimmy Carter will attend with their wives. President Barack Obama will be out of the country but will participate via video feed, “highlighting the critical role of service in America,” organizers said.
NBC will broadcast the event at 8 p.m. March 28.
