Pharrell, Big Sean, Miguel, Sia, John Legend, Ed Sheeran and are coming together for a good cause. The aforementioned artists are part of a larger list of talents enlisted for a forthcoming benefit special intended to place the spotlight on racial issues in America and ignite a “constructive dialogue about race relations in America”. The two-hour event is dubbed Shining a Light: A Concert for Progress on Race in Americaand will air on November 20 via A&E channels and iHeartRadio stations. In a statement about the event, &E and Lifetime’s Exeutive Vice President and General Manager Rob Sharenow had this say:

“Race is … not an easy thing to talk about and sing about…the artists that are coming forward see it as a unique opportunity to engage in a conversation that’s often not talked about. It’s become more than a concert. Based on the artists’ reactions, particularly Pharrell, we’ve expanded it to include conversations on race in places all over the country where we bring people in the community together … with the artists to talk about their experiences. I don’t think anyone has ever attempted to put together something quite like this, on this scale.”
