Tonight's (July 9) virtual fundraiser for presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden will not only feature an all-star roster of artists including Diplo, DJ D-Nice, Jermaine Dupri and DJ Cassidy, but the Sen. Kamala Harris-hosted event will also launch a new evolving Spotify playlist of curated songs on the former Vice President's Spotify channel called "Get Up, Stand Up: Songs for the Soul of America."

The playlist will be continuously updated with songs chosen by Cassidy and other guest curators from now until the Nov. 3 election and it will be available immediately after the event, which kicks off at 7 p.m. ET. “I could not be more honored and excited to be launching Vice President Biden’s official Spotify channel," Cassidy -- who spun at both of Pres. Obama's inaugurations -- tells Billboard exclusively. "Music has always played a significant role in America’s social evolution and now, more than ever, music has the power to inspire, uplift and unite. I hope the playlists on this channel can serve to energize and mobilize us all between now and November."

Check out the announcement of the fundraiser below and the playlist, which includes songs by Stevie Wonder, The Staples Singers, Sam & Dave, The Wailers, Marvin Gaye, Jackie Wilson and many more.
