Ahead of her 2020 American Music Awards hosting gig on Nov. 22, the actress puts together a list of poignant songs by Mary J. Blige, Stevie Wonder & more.
Taraji P. Henson's first order of business before hosting the 2020 American Music Awards later this month is to get people pumped for Tuesday's election through music.
She curated a voting playlist on Election Day Eve (Nov. 2), mixing classics such as Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On" and Nina Simone's "Mississippi Goddam" with new-age protest anthems such as Lil Baby's "The Bigger Picture" and H.E.R.'s "I Can't Breathe."
Henson also showed love to her friend and I Can Do Bad All by Myself co-star Mary J. Blige, whom she presented the Icon Award to at the 2017 Billboard Women in Music event, by including her 2001 hit "No More Drama."
