Ozuna performs at Calibash Las Vegas 2020 at the T-Mobile Arena on Jan. 25, 2020 in Las Vegas.

Ozuna is set to perform alongside DJ Cassidy on Jan. 20 for his “Pass the Mic: Inaugural Edition" during the 90-minute inauguration special Celebrating America, joining other artists slated to take the stage including Demi Lovato, Justin Timberlake, Bruce Springsteen, and Jon Bon Jovi, among others.

Tom Hanks will host the primetime special Celebrating America following President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris’ inauguration. Biden and Harris are also set to make remarks.

According to a statement from the Presidential Inaugural Committee (PIC), the artists that “represent the rich diversity and extensive talent America offers” will perform at “iconic locations across the country.”

Throughout the special, Eva Longoria and Kerry Washington will introduce “stories of young people making a difference in their communities” as well as the performers.

“This inauguration presents a unique opportunity to spotlight the resilience and spirit of an America united,” said PIC CEO Tony Allen in a statement. “We have witnessed countless heroes this past year step up to the frontlines and serve their fellow Americans, so we are telling their stories, spreading their collective light, and celebrating the best of our country and its people with this prime-time program. Our first priority is safety, so while many of us will be watching safely from our homes, we are creating real moments of connection that highlight a new inclusive American era of leadership that works for and represents all Americans.”

Celebrating America will air on Wednesday, Jan. 20, from 8:30 to 10 p.m. ET on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, and MSNBC. It also livestream on the PIC’s YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and Twitch accounts. Amazon Prime Video, Twitch, and NewsNOW from Fox will also stream the event.
