CLEVELAND — LeBron James will be paying tribute to the Class of 2020 by hosting a one-hour special.

The Graduate Together: American Honors the High School Class of 2020 will feature LeBron James, Bad Bunny, Charli D'Amelio, Dixie D'Amelio, Chika, YBN Cordae, Loren Gray, H.E.R., the Jonas Brothers, Brandan Bmike Odums, Ben Platt, Henry Platt, Jonah Platt, Megan Rapinoe, Yara Shahidi, Lena Waithe, Pharrell Williams, Malala Yousafzai, and more.

ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC will simultaneously air the special along with Complex Networks, Facebook, Instagram, PeopleTV, Snapchat, TikTok, and YouTube.

“We learned early on in our work with students and families in Akron that education is so much more than academics. It’s about a shared experience, a journey we’re all on together—students, parents, educators, community members, and everyone around them. With that not being possible right now, we’ve been working to find ways to help families get through this really difficult time,” said James. “These students have worked incredibly hard for this and there’s no way we can let that go unrecognized. While this won’t be the graduation experience they were supposed to get, we hope we can still give them something special because they deserve it.”

The special will air May 16 at 8 p.m.
