A number of A-list stars are coming together just days before the presidential election for the Every Vote Counts: a Celebration of Democracy event on CBS.

The nonpartisan special, set for tonight (Oct. 29) at 9:00 p.m. ET, aims to uplift the power of civic action and honor the value of every single citizen’s right to vote.

The nationally-televised and streamed event will air on CBS and iHeartMedia radio stations and the iHeartMedia app. Following tonight's broadcast, the special will be available to watch on Friday (Oct. 30) at 9:00 p.m. ET on Apple Music, Apple TV App, NowThis, YouTube, Twitter, TIDAL and Facebook.

Alicia Keys, Kerry Washington and America Ferrera are set to host the event, with Keys also scheduled to perform. Additional performers include Shawn Mendes, Brandi Carlile, Dan + Shay and Offset.

“The purpose for this special is to remind and inspire all Americans of the power of their voice and their vote. It’s a challenging time but we have the opportunity to continue to show up and shape the world we want to live in. In a democracy, every vote counts, so we want to encourage and uplift each other and remember we all have a say in the direction of our country because everyone’s participation matters,” host Alicia Keys said in a statement. “Also, for many young people across the country, this is their first time voting so we want to make sure they understand the magnitude of this time and learn why this is one of the most exciting moments in the Democratic process.”

The special will also feature appearances by Sen. Bill Frist, Billie Eilish, Gov. John Kasich, Lizzo, Salma Hayek Pinault, Tan France, Sen.
