Concert For America has been announced for June 30, starring Tina Fey, Idina Menzel, Audra McDonald, Chita Rivera, Mandy Gonzalez and more.

Hosted by Seth Rudetsky and James Wesley of SiriusXM, the benefit consisting of music, comedy, and commentary will take place in New York's Great Hall at The Cooper Union. Rudetsky said in a statement, "James and I have been increasingly horrified at what’s going on with these families struggling at the border." He added that the scheduled Concert For America will coincide with the coming day of national protests, and will benefit the non-profits working with families at the southern border.

General Admission tickets are $25, and limited VIP seats are $250, with proceeds going towards Al Otro Lado, Texas Civil Rights Project, ACLU Foundation of Texas, and Florence Project, all groups working to protect the civil and human rights of families on the border. Tickets can be purchased here

The event will livestream on Facebook and at ConcertsforAmerica.com, beginning at 5 p.m., ET on Saturday, June 30.
