ATLANTA — Recent findings have shown that Black Americans are being disproportionately harmed by the health and financial devastation during the COVID-19 pandemic.
In response to that data, BET is hosting “Saving Ourselves COVID-19” a benefit concert, in partnership with the NAACP, United Way Worldwide, leaders in the African American creative, civil rights, and business communities.
The efforts will provide critical financial, educational, and community support directly to the African Americans hardest hit by this crisis.
“Black-ish” actor Anthony Anderson, Kelly Rowland, Terrence J, and Regina Hall are set to host the televised special.
There will be performances by Alicia Keys, John Legend, Atlanta’s own Usher, Chloe x Halle, Jermaine Dupri, Ludacris, and so many more!
Atlanta Mayor Keshia Lance Bottoms is also set to appear during the broadcast.
The big show will air Wednesday at 8 p.m. on BET.
