American singer Andra Day and a variety of Latinx artists will stand up against xenophobia and fear-mongering when they perform at a historic Univision- and Fusion-produced concert on the U.S.-Mexico border later this month.
Rise Up As One is set for October 15 at the Cross Border Xpress, an airport terminal and bridge on the outskirts of San Diego that provides access to Tijuana. Besides Day, performers include Columbian singer Juanes, Mexican singer Julieta Venagas and norteño band Los Tigres del Norte.
Described by Univision as ”a celebration of music, diversity and unity,” the concert will be broadcast in Spanish on Univision and English on Fusion. “Hamilton” star Lin-Manuel Miranda, who narrated the concert promo above, co-chairs the event alongside a diverse group of creators including director Ava DuVernay (“Selma”), author Junot Díaz (“This is How You Lose Her”), musicians Gloria and Emilio Estefan and actress America Ferrera (“Superstore”).
