A number of A-list stars are coming together just days before the presidential election for the Every Vote Counts: a Celebration of Democracy event on CBS.
The nonpartisan special, set for Oct. 29 at 9:00 p.m. ET, aims to uplift the power of civic action and honor the value of every single citizen’s right to vote.
The nationally-televised and streamed event will air on CBS and iHeartMedia radio stations and app, and will be live-streamed simultaneously via CBS All Access, Apple Music, Apple TV App, NowThis, YouTube, Twitter, TIDAL and Facebook.
“The purpose for this special is to remind and inspire all Americans of the power of their voice and their vote. It’s a challenging time but we have the opportunity to continue to show up and shape the world we want to live in. In a democracy, every vote counts, so we want to encourage and uplift each other and remember we all have a say in the direction of our country because everyone’s participation matters,” host Alicia Keys said in a statement. “Also, for many young people across the country, this is their first time voting so we want to make sure they understand the magnitude of this time and learn why this is one of the most exciting moments in the Democratic process.”
The special will also feature appearances by Amy Schumer, Chris Rock, Cobie Smulders, Coldplay, Condoleezza Rice, Eva Longoria, Jennifer Lopez, John Kasich, Kelly Clarkson, Leonardo DiCaprio, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Natalie Portman, Shaquille O’Neal, Tan France, Wilmer Valderrama and more.
Every Vote Counts will be produced by Live Nation, Global Citizen and Live Animals, and co-produced by Ryan Piers Williams, Chris Stadler, Rick Yorn, AK Worldwide, Harness, Simpson Street and Sunshine Sachs.
