“This past year brought a lot of frustration, grief, anger — and there were times when it was easy to feel powerless,” Justin captioned a January 13 Instagram clip. “This song was our way of doing what little we could to encourage everyone to stay hopeful… and keep working towards a better, more equal future. I’m very honored to announce we will be performing this song on January 20th for the Presidential Inauguration. We have a long way to go to fix, undo, and rebuild this country… but I hope now, despite the past four years, we are on our way.” Frontline workers, healthcare workers, teachers, and other heroic Americans will be honored during the broadcast, per the official synopsis, while even more A-list performers are slated to be announced.

Celebrating America will air on January 20 at 8:30pm on multiple platforms, including ABC, CBS, CNN, NBC, and MSNBC.
