CONNICK TOURS THE U.S. TO MEET HEROES FOR CBS SPECIAL

The Recording Academy and CBS will celebrate essential workers across the U.S. in United We Sing: A Grammy Salute To The Unsung Heroes that will air 6/21. Harry Connick Jr. is the host.

Connick and his filmmaker daughter, Georgia Connick, take a road trip across the nation in an RV to thank and celebrate essential workers who risk their own lives on a daily basis to keep the country safe. 

Connick highlights the contributions of these everyday heroes with the help of friends such as Sandra Bullock, Drew Brees, Queen Latifah and  Oprah Winfrey. The show will feature performances by Connick, Jamie Foxx, John Fogerty, Little Big Town, Branford Marsalis, Wynton Marsalis, Andra Day, Trombone Shorty, Irma Thomas, Tim McGraw and others.

The special, produced by Renato Basile and Ann Marie Wilkins and executive produced by Connick and Ken Ehrlich, will invite donors to contribute to charities that support underserved children, such as No Kid Hungry and the Ellis Marsalis Center for Music in New Orleans, as well as to the MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund.

 

The Connicks' journey begins at their home in Connecticut, and after stopping in various cities along the way, they reach their final destination of Connick’s hometown, New Orleans. At each stop, father and daughter listen to the stories of essential workers in healthcare, food preparation, sanitation, law enforcement, trucking and more.
