In celebration of Juneteenth (June 19th) Alicia Keys and John Legend will be go head-to-head in an epic piano showdown.
Courtesy of the Verzuz show, the two stars will buck the trend of deciding a winner as both artists perform in celebration of today’s significant event in our country’s history. Celebrated by many, the unofficial holiday marks the end of slavery in the United States when word of Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation finally reached Galveston Texas on June 19th, 1865. The news sparked widespread celebrations and church community gatherings that continue today.
Uncertain as to what repertoire each Grammy Award winner will bring to their piano accompanied performances, here’s the event poster for the face-off during tonight’s exciting exhibition.
Since the online Verzuz-sponsored battle series was first launched on April 11th in response to the pandemic lockdown, more than 1.6 million followers have tuned in to watch. Check out the friendly battle between Alicia Keys and John Legend at 8 PM EST tonight on Verzuz’ Instagram channel
