Did You Miss It? Chaka Khan, Michelle Williams, Mary Mary, & More Rock CNN’s ‘Juneteenth’ Celebration [Watch]

Published: Tuesday 21st Jun 2022 by Rashad

Queen of Funk Chaka Khan led a royal, star-studded lineup of performers for CNN’s inaugural ‘Juneteenth: a Global Celebration for Freedom’ concert Sunday (June 19).

Airing live from Los Angeles’ famous Hollywood Bowl, the performance roster included the likes of Earth, Wind & Fire, Mary Mary, Michelle Williams, Khalid, Ne-Yo, Bell Biv Devoe, Yolanda Adams, and notably the renowned all-Black symphony orchestra Re-Collective Orchestra (conducted by Thomas Wilkins and Derrick Hodge with musical direction from Adam Blackstone and Questlove).

A most fitting toast to the federal holiday which commemorates the official end of slavery in the U.S., look inside if you missed any of the action when it first aired.

    I don’t see why they can’t add it online or add it to the app. Where are my subscriber dollars going?

    All that marching and this is what the Black Community get…more music and Entertainment. Something BP have had for decades NOW.

    Meanwhile a 21 yr old was shot & killed at a Family gathering on Juneteenth.

    Safer and cleaner communities….something many Black ppl have never grew up in.
