Roddy Ricch & 21 Savage Set to Perform on iHeartRadio’s Living Black!

Roddy Ricch, 21 Savage, Jhené Aiko and Kirk Franklin will be among the performers on iHeartRadio’s Living Black!, which is set to air Feb. 20 on iHeartMedia hip-hop, gospel and R&B broadcast stations, iHeartRadio’s YouTube and Facebook pages and the iHeartRadio app nationwide.

The show, which will air at 6 p.m. ET/3 p.m. PT, will be produced by Rikki Hughes, who has won two Emmys and three Grammys for her work with comedian Dave Chappelle.

Throughout February, which is Black History Month, iHeartMedia national and on-air personalities, including The Breakfast Club (consisting of Charlamagne Tha God, Angela Yee and DJ Envy), Steve Harvey and Big Boy, will honor “trailblazers, modern history makers and future change-makers” of Black culture.

The monthlong celebration will also feature audio tributes to Black trailblazers from top country, pop and rock artists and listeners across 580 iHeartMedia broadcast stations.

“Black culture is American culture and this past year especially has resulted in much needed and long overdue conversations about the role of race in America,” said Doc Wynter, executive vice president of urban/hip-hop programming strategy for iHeartMedia. “iHeartRadio’s Living Black! will use iHeartMedia’s unparalleled reach to help shape these conversations and celebrate Black culture at scale.”
