Event producers at Macy’s have announced their roster of music artists who will perform at their world famous Thanksgiving Day Parade this year when the annual New York event takes place on Nov. 22 next month. The televised event has become known for its live performances that take place on both passing floats and right in front of the famous retail store’s Manhattan location near Herold Square. The 92nd running of the Thanksgiving Parade this year will feature performances from Diana Ross and Family, John Legend, Rita Ora, Kane Brown, emerging pop artists Bad Bunny and Ella Mai, country artists Martina McBride and Sugarland, American a cappella group Pentatonix and Tony Award-winner Anika Noni Rose, just to name a few.
“High School Musical” actress Ashley Tisdale, rock band Barenaked Ladies, Bazzi, Brynn Cartelli, Carly Pearce, Jack & Jack, Leona Lewis and Mackenzie Ziegler & Johnny Orlando are also a few of the 19 total performers scheduled to appear at this year’s Parade. Fans can click here for more details as to where and when each group or artist will be performing along the Parade route.
Diana Ross will reportedly perform holiday tunes alongside some of her family members, actress Tracee Ellis Ross and Evan Ross. Legend will also perform some holiday tunes, presumably from his recently released holiday album, A Legendary Christmas.
One of the notable things to take away from the performance lineup announcement is the diversity of artists. While Thanksgiving is strictly an American holiday, a variety of performers including Bad Bunny, Barenaked Ladies, Ella Mai and Leona Lewis will all represent their home countries outside of the U.S. Fans can tune into to watch all the highlight performances when the Parade airs live on Thanksgiving morning via “Today Show” on 9 a.m. EST.
