The one-hour special from the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles will be presented commercial-free. The event is designed to raise awareness for the fight against cancer. “It seems like everyone has been touched by cancer these days,” Carrie says, “whether it be a personal experience, a family member or friend, or their families. If by participating in this charity effort, I entice just one person to give funds for cancer research, then it will be so worthwhile.” Sugarland is also scheduled to perform on the star-studded TV special.
