Third Consecutive Year as Host

NBC and dick clark productions announced today that Kelly Clarkson will return once again to host NBC’s three-hour live telecast of the “2020 Billboard Music Awards” on Wednesday, April 29 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. This will mark Clarkson’s third time hosting the hugely popular award show after receiving unanimous acclaim as host in 2018 and 2019.

The “2020 Billboard Music Awards” will be broadcast live from Las Vegas and feature the year’s hottest musical acts, unexpected collaborations and buzzworthy moments.

As host, Clarkson has helped create many iconic Billboard Music Awards moments, including unexpected cameos by surprise guests. Her opening performances, where she puts her own vocal spin on the year’s top hits, have become a can’t miss moment on the show and are widely anticipated by fans.

“I’m thrilled to be back with my Billboard family,” Clarkson said. “I love being part of an event that celebrates our greatest artists and entertains our fans. This a night of music that you won’t want to miss!”

Clarkson serves as a coach for season 18 of NBC’s multi-Emmy Award-winning musical competition series “The Voice” and hosts her own daytime program, “The Kelly Clarkson Show,” which was the fall season’s #1 new syndicated show. She is among the most popular artists of this era with total worldwide sales of more than 25 million albums and 40 million singles.

Clarkson is the recipient of an array of awards, including three Grammy Awards, four American Music Awards, three MTV Video Music Awards, two Academy of Country Music Awards and one Country Music Assn. Award. She has notched three #1 songs on the Billboard Hot 100, among 11 top 10’s and 27 total appearances. She has also tallied three #1 albums on the Billboard 200, among eight top 10’s in11 total appearances. Her versatility has also resulted in seven #1 singles on the Dance Club Songs chart; four on both the Pop Songs and Adult Pop Songs charts; three on Adult Contemporary; and one on Hot Country Songs.

To date in her career, she has drawn 61 billion in cumulative radio audience and 2.8 billion on-demand U.S. streams and sold 14.6 million albums in the U.S., according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.

The “2019 Billboard Music Awards” averaged a 2.1 rating in adults 18-49 and 8.0 million viewers, according to “live plus same day” Nielsens, delivering NBC’s best in-season Wednesday in 18-49, excluding Olympics, since 2016. The awards telecast jumped +110% above NBC’s Wednesday season average in the 18-49 demo and was up +1.5 million persons in total viewers to top every Big 4 entertainment telecast over the prior seven weeks in 18-49.

“Billboard Music Awards” nominees and winners are based on key fan interactions with music, including album and digital song sales, streaming, radio airplay, touring and social engagement, tracked by Billboard and its data partners, including Nielsen Music/MRC Data. The awards are based on the chart period of March 23, 2019 through March 14, 2020. Since 1940, the Billboard charts have been the go-to guide for ranking the popularity of artists, songs and albums, and are the ultimate measure of success in music.

Pro Jam Mondays at Beerhaus Fosters
Unique Community for Musicians

 Lovers of live music are invited to rock out at Beerhaus at The Park as local musicians join forces with music industry veterans to present Pro Jam Mondays. The weekly event is complimentary and open to the public, and kicks off at 9 p.m.

Creator Ben Carey, a seasoned professional musician who’s been a part of notable rock bands such as Savage Garden and Lifehouse, delivers veteran performers to the stage alongside select local artists, hand-picked by Carey himself. Far from an open-mic night, the collision of musical styles and a wealth of experience creates a contagious excitement that keeps fans on their feet all night.

“Pro Jam Mondays is sparking the creation of a musical community at Beerhaus each week, bringing incredible musicians from the Las Vegas area together who perform locally and worldwide,” said Carey. “Fans get to witness first-hand the passion and love for music from all of the musicians, and what they learn from each other as they perform.”    

Touring veterans who have taken the stage since the show’s recent debut include Chris Lukes, former drummer for Kelly Clarkson and Enrique Iglesias; and Danny DeMorales, former bass player for Dionne Warwick. The list will continue to expand each week as more musicians join the community.

About the Hollywood Foreign Press Association
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) was founded in 1943 as the Hollywood Foreign Correspondents Association (HFCA) by a group of entertainment journalists representing world media in Hollywood, who realized the need to unite and organize to gain the recognition and access to studios and talent accorded to the domestic press. All qualified journalists were accepted, with the bold goal of “Unity Without Discrimination of Religion or Race.” A year later, the HFCA created the Golden Globe Awards which, to this day, the entire membership selects, votes on and awards every year for outstanding achievements in motion pictures and television. This year, the HFPA will celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Golden Globe Awards. Members of the HFPA represent 56 countries with a combined readership of 250 million in some of the world’s most respected publications. Each year, the organization holds the third most watched awards show on television, the Golden Globe® Awards, which has enabled the organization to donate $30 million to entertainment-related charities, scholarship programs and humanitarian efforts over the last 25 years. Last year, the HFPA distributed $3 million in grants through their Charitable Trust to a diverse group of organizations and institutions within the entertainment industry.

Fremont Street Experience to Host Gary Sinise & The Lt. Dan Band
Salute To The Troops Free Concert

Disabled Veterans Travel to Vegas from Walter Reed at Naval Support Activity Bethesda & Fort Belvoir


 Fremont Street Experience will host, for the third year, a special post-Veterans Day free concert featuring actor/humanitarian Gary Sinise’s Lt. Dan Band. Gary Sinise & The Lt. Dan Band’s “Salute To The Troops” concert at Fremont Street Experience will be Saturday, Nov. 14, at 7:30 p.m. on the 1st Street Stage The event will kick off with the Nellis Air Force Base Color Guard and Lt. Daniel Vargas singing the National Anthem.

A program of the Gary Sinise Foundation, the Lt. Dan Band has a singular mission when it puts on a concert: Honor. Gratitude. Rock and Roll. It’s a high energy performance as the twelve-member group covers hits from classic to contemporary, featuring the songs of Stevie Wonder, Kelly Clarkson, Adele, the Zac Brown Band, and more – there are even swing tunes from the 1940’s. You name it, there’s something for everyone. Whether boosting morale on military bases at home and abroad, raising awareness at benefit concerts across the country, or headlining a Gary Sinise Foundation Invincible Spirit Festival, the band entertains and inspires and it is Gary’s mission to deliver a message of giving back to our defenders wherever the band performs.

In addition to the Gary Sinise Foundation, this year’s event is made possible thanks to sponsors American Airlines, MGM Resorts International, USO Metro, Fort Worth Airpower Foundation, and Fremont Street Experience.

“Every year we like to show our gratitude for all that our active and retired military have sacrificed and continue to sacrifice for our country, said Tom Bruny, Director of Marketing of Fremont Street Experience. We are thrilled to have Gary Sinise & The Lt. Dan Band return to Fremont Street Experience for the third year and be a part of this special tribute to our soldiers. We are also honored that we could welcome affected soldiers from around the country to enjoy this special concert.”

Sinise, who played Lt. Dan Taylor in the movie Forrest Gump and starred on the long running TV show CSI: NY, is founder of the Gary Sinise Foundation, an organization dedicated to helping and honoring U.S. service members, veterans, first responders and their families. His band has performed for troops all over the world. The concert is free and open to the public. A VIP area will be set up in front of the stage to be exclusively used by approximately 150 disabled veterans from both Walter Reed at Naval Support Activity Bethesda & Fort Belvoir. This trip is sponsored & produced by American Airlines, which charters a plane to fly the disabled veterans to Las Vegas.  The Mirage is their host hotel while in Vegas and Landry’s Bubba Gump restaurant at Planet Hollywood will be hosting them for a pre-concert dinner.

About Gary Sinise and Gary Sinise Foundation
Actor/humanitarian Gary Sinise has been actively and tirelessly supporting the troops for over thirty years.  Among his numerous film and television roles, it was his portrayal of Lt. Dan Taylor in the landmark film Forrest Gump which formed an enduring connection with servicemen and women throughout the military community.  After several USO handshake tours in 2003, Sinise formed the “Lt. Dan Band” and began entertaining troops serving at home and abroad. Performing pop hits to classic rock staples, the 12-member cover band has played for over half-a-million troops and their families. His endless work on behalf of those who’ve served has earned Sinise many distinguished awards including The Bob Hope Award for Excellence in Entertainment from the Medal of Honor Society, the Spirit of the USO Award, The Ellis Island Medal of Honor, the Spirit of Hope Award by the Department of Defense, and most recently the Dwight D. Eisenhower Award from the National Defense Industrial Association. He is the 2015 recipient of the Sylvanus Thayer award from the West Point Association of Graduates and in 2008 he received the Presidential Citizens Medal, the second-highest civilian honor awarded to citizens for exemplary deeds performed in service of the nation, only the third actor ever to receive this honor. He was named an Honorary Chief Petty Officer by the United States Navy and an Honorary Marine by the United States Marine Corp.

In 2011, Sinise started the Gary Sinise Foundation with a mission to honor defenders, veterans, first responders, their families and those in need by creating and supporting unique programs designed to entertain, educate, inspire, strengthen and build communities. These include its R.I.S.E. program (Restoring Independence and Supporting Empowerment), whose flagship initiative is a specially adapted custom Smart Home building project for severely wounded veterans.  Each home is customized to ease daily challenges and help restore independence with features like retractable cook tops, cabinets and shelving, elevators and more, all accessible via an iPad.  The Gary Sinise Foundation is constructing these one-of-a-kind homes all across the country, each for a wounded hero, their caregivers and family. Other programs include Relief & Resiliency Outreach, Soaring Valor, Invincible Spirit Festivals, and Arts & Entertainment Outreach.  Over the years, the Foundation has formed numerous corporate partnerships that support many of the Foundation’s programs.

The Gary Sinise Foundation (Federal Tax ID 80-0587086) is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charity as defined in sections 509(A)(1) and 170(B)(1)(A)(VI) of the Internal Revenue Code. Combined Federal Campaign, CFC #27963. For more information, visit garysinisefoundation.org.
