Celebrating its 36th season, the UNCF’s An Evening of Stars will be broadcast at 11 p.m. on Saturday, April 25, right here on WCCO-TV.
Hosted for the third year by Anthony Anderson, the program will join the hottest names in entertainment with UNCF’s own “rising star” students to focus attention on the importance of getting to and through college.
The program will also place its focus squarely on UNCF students telling what education and UNCF support mean to them. There will also be presentations of scholarships from UNCF and celebrities that will support students as they follow their dreams through education.
Among the stars on this year’s roster are Toni Braxton, Pharrell, Kevin Hart, Usher, Estelle, Jussie Smollett, Ludacris, Jermaine Dupri, Yolanda Adams, and Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed.
