Billie Eilish, John Legend, The Chicks, Billy Porter, and Common are among the artists announced to appear at this week’s Democratic National Convention.
Other artists to perform include Leon Bridges, Jennifer Hudson, Maggie Rogers, Prince Royce, Stephen Stills. Their performances will range from the national anthem to classics from the American songbook.
The Democratic National Convention will take place over four nights, starting tonight, August 17 with live programming airing from 9:00-11:00 PM Eastern.
“It will truly be a convention across America, and these incredible artists will help us tell the story of where we are as a country today under Donald Trump’s failed leadership, and the promise of what we can and should be with Joe Biden as president,” said Stephanie Cutter, 2020 Democratic National Convention Program Executive. “These artists are committed to engaging with, registering and mobilizing voters to get us over the finish line in November.”
Former Vice President Joe Biden will formally accept his party’s nomination on Thursday, while his running mate Kamela Harris will accept her nomination on Wednesday night.
Hilary and Bill Clinton, and Barack and Michelle Obama are scheduled to make addresses as well.
