I am grateful to be a part of such a supportive community and hope I can inspire the kids at WE Day just as they continue to inspire me.”
The show will feature a number of celeb appearances, including a performance by Alicia Keys and a star-studded guest list that includes Bryan Cranston, DJ Khaled, Miss Piggy along with other Muppets, Alessia Cara, Josh Gad, Lilly Singh, Earvin “Magic” Johnson, Tyrese Gibson and more.
