WASHINGTON - As 500,000 people protest in Washington during the March For Our Lives, several big-name celebrities will be hitting the stage to perform for the demonstrators.
As Saturday’s rally calls for action on gun violence, there will also be plenty of action on stage for the half a million people in attendance.
Confirmed entertainers performing on Saturday include Jennifer Hudson, Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato, Common, Vic Mensa, Andra Day, Miley Cyrus, Lin Manuel Miranda and Ben Platt.
Manuel Miranda and Platt announced they would be performing their song “Found Tonight,” which was inspired by the student-led movement.
Many A-list celebrities have thrown their support behind the movement which is spearheaded by students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. The high school was the site of the deadliest school mass shooting in U.S. history after authorities say 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz opened fire on Valentine’s Day, killing 17 people, including 14 students and three faculty members.
Some of Hollywood’s most powerful names have donated money to the event, including Oprah Winfrey, George and Amal Clooney, and Steven Spielberg. Stars such as Justin Bieber and Harry styles have also encouraged students to participate as well. The cast of hit show "Modern Family" also recorded a public service announcement.
Politicians will also be out in force with the students, as Mayor Muriel Bowser joined in a video with Justin Timberlake to promote the walk and state she would be participating as well.
