Cher teaming with Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Mindy Kaling, Alyssa Milano for International Women's Day celebration
This year’s International Women’s Day is about to become a star-studded event — thanks to a singer we like to call Cher.
VH1 is marking the celebration of all things female with the VH1 Trailblazer Honors, a one-hour special dedicated to some of today’s most respected politicians, entertainers, artists, and activists. At the center of the big event will be four honorees: Speaker Nancy Pelosi, #MeToo movement founder Tarana Burke, director Ava DuVernay, and Handmaid’s Tale author Margaret Atwood. EW can exclusively announce that none other than Cher will be on hand to present to Pelosi — but we can’t confirm whether she’ll arrive via helicopter or not.
The television special, which is set to air Friday, March 8, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on VH1 and Logo, will also feature performances by Rita Ora and Elle King (who will sing “Baby Outlaw” from her latest studio album, Shake the Spirit) and appearances by Anita Hill, Mindy Kaling, Alyssa Milano, and Samira Wiley in addition to the honorees.
Mamma mia indeed.
