The goal is to reach 500,000 eligible voters through performances from a variety of hip hop, R&B, and gospel artists. Unregistered voters can find voter registration information through the event.
Making appearances are Kerry Washington, Tracee Ellis Ross, Tom Hanks, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Janelle Monae, Chris Paul, and more. Performers include H.E.R., Lil Baby, Roddy Ricch, Sza, Kirk Franklin, and D-Nice.
