CHARLESTON - Pop superstar Pharrell Williams is scheduled to perform with a gospel choir Sunday at the South Carolina church where nine black parishioners were shot and killed.
Multiple news outlets report that Williams' appearance at Emanuel AME Church is part of a program on race relations being produced by A+E Networks and iHeartMedia.
Williams plans to speak with community leaders and others affected by the June 17 shooting at the church.
The two-hour "Shining a Light: A Concert for Progress on Race in America" program is scheduled to air November 20. It will also feature a concert to be filmed Nov. 18 in Los Angeles.
A goal of the program is to raise money for the victims of racial violence and for organizations around the country working to promote racial equity.
