Elton John will perform at an event taking place at the White House this Friday (September 23.)

Per CNN, the event is called “A Night When Hope and History Rhyme” and is a collaboration between A&E Networks and The History Channel. The event will air at a yet-to-be-determined later date. President Joe Biden and first lady Dr. Jill Biden will speak at the event.

CNN cites a release for the event saying it will “celebrate the unifying and healing power of music, commend the life and work of Sir Elton John, and honor the everyday history-makers in the audience, including teachers, nurses, frontline workers, mental health advocates, students, LGBTQ+ advocates and more.”

The event marks the second time Sir Elton will perform at the White House. John performed at the famed residence in 1998 as part of a State Dinner when then-British Prime Minister Tony Blair visited the White House.
