The evening will be hosted by Jessica Alba and will feature special musical guests including Maroon 5, spoken word artists Steve Connell, Sekou (Tha Misfit), Nuttin But Strings, celebrity DJ Samantha Ronson, and surprise guests. The debut of Declare Yourselfs Born Again American song will occur that evening with a sensational live performance.
Born Again American is a specially commissioned song to move all listeners to recommit themselves to American citizenship as we go through these trying but hopeful times together. Born Again American asks citizens to pledge themselves to being their countrys keeper through higher levels of service and civic engagement.
Norman Lear, the TV producer, and founder of Declare Yourself, said, This Inauguration marks an important moment in our countrys history – one that allows us all to be proud of how far weve come and the direction were going. Our event celebrates this moment and helps motivate us all to become more active in our communities on the local and national level by getting involved, giving back, and being proud to be an American, born again.
