A day before Juneteenth was commemorated as a federal holiday for the first time in its 156-year history, ABC celebrated the occasion with a stirring tribute TV special – “Juneteenth: Together We Triumph – A ‘Soul of a Nation” (June 18).
The two-hour televised event – which featured appearances from the likes of former President Barack Obama, Michael Strahan, Leslie Odom, Jr., and many more – also was rocked by roof-raising performances from the likes of Chloe (of Chloe x Halle fame) and H.E.R.
The latter – hot on the promo trail in support of her long-awaited debut album ‘Back of My Mind’ – delivered a particularly riveting performance of her Academy Award-winning song ‘Fight For You’ (which was originally featured on the ‘Judas & the Black Messiah’ soundtrack).
Look inside to see how she fared.
