iHeartRadio’s Living Black! celebration is back for another year to “celebrate the boldness and beauty of black excellence.”
Lizzo will headline the month-long celebration at the iHeartRadio Theater in Los Angeles on Feb. 23.
This year’s celebration will also include performances by Big Sean, H.E.R., Moneybagg Yo, and Ari Lennox. While not set to perform, stars like J.Cole, Alicia Keys, John Legend, and more are slated to make special appearances.
iHeartRadio’s Living Black! is a bold celebration of Black culture and showcases the beauty and influence of the Black experience,” iHeartMedia’s Thea Mitchem said in a statement.
“We’re thrilled to build upon the Living Black! foundation in our second year and excited to once again work with Magic Lemonade on this wonderful celebration.”
The live concert will be broadcasted on TikTok across iHeartMedia radio stations and the iHeartRadio app.
Throughout February, iHeartRadio stations will also “feature conversations that educate, inspire, and celebrate the Black experience through a mix of custom audio tributes from artists, influencers, and thought leaders.”
“We are thrilled to once again honor Black History Month and Black culture through ongoing and informative discussions about race and some very special performances during this year’s iHeartRadio Living Black,” iHeartMedia president of hip hop and R&B programming Doc Wynter said.
“We can’t think of a better way to spotlight our community than partnering with these incredible artists and trailblazers, as together we celebrate the impact that Black lives have on American culture with a month-long celebration that will culminate with a special event across iHeartRadio’s stations nationwide and on TikTok,” Wynter added.
