Brad Paisley, Carrie Underwood + More to Honor George Bush in Star-Studded ‘Celebration of Service
Brad Paisley, Carrie Underwood, Garth Brooks, Reba McEntire, Darius Rucker, Kid Rock, and Sheryl Crow will all be a part of the Points of Light Institute’s star-studded show, ’All Together Now – A Celebration of Service,’ on March 21 on NBC. The event honors President George H. W. Bush and his work in promoting the value of volunteerism in American life.
The special will take place at the John F. Kennedy Center for Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., and it will include additional performances by Sam Moore and Cee Lo Green. More performers will be named soon.
It will also mark the first time all living former U.S. presidents will be together in one room since President Obama was inaugurated. The past Presidents include Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Jimmy Carter.
“I remain optimistic about America precisely because of the countless Points of Light who give so freely of themselves and claim one of society’s problems as their own, helping make life better for those around them in the process,” President George H. W.Bush says, adding, “The true strength of America has always been, and always will be, our people, and today we can take heart that more Americans of all ages are rolling up their sleeves and joining this movement to serve others.”
Points of Light Institute is also asking Americans to call out someone from their own community who inspires through actions or words. You can post about them on a special tribute wall.
‘All Together Now – A Celebration of Service,’ will air on March 21 at 8PM ET on NBC.
