Actor Anthony Anderson has been on the media rounds promoting his hosting stint on the United Negro College Fund’s “Evening of Stars” fundraiser that will premiere nationally on January 26 and air on BET on January 27.
The UNCF telecast, which was taped in December 2012 in Pasadena, Calif., features performances and appearances by Chaka Khan, Yolanda Adams, Charlie Wilson, Keyshia Cole, Tyrese Gibson, Melanie Fiona, Trey Songz, Eric Benet, Tracee Ellis Ross, Shaun Robinson, Keenan Ivory Wayans and many more.
The UNCF is the country’s largest and most effective minority education organization, supporting the education of over 60,000 students each year. UNCF’s largest scholarship program, the Gates Millennium Scholars Program, has a 90 percent graduation rate among its 13,000 low-income minority students, a rate significantly higher than the national college graduation rate.
Anderson, star of NBC’s “Guys With Kids,” appeared on shows like “Live with Kelly & Michael” and BET’s “106 & Park” to tout the annual UNCF special.
