Gloria Estefan to Perform at Capitol for Memorial Day in D.C.

Gloria Estefan will perform at this year's National Memorial Day Concert on the Capitol lawn in a show hosted by actors Gary Sinise and Joe Mantegna in Washington.

Producers are announcing plans Wednesday for the concert, which honors the nation's veterans and service members. The concert will be broadcast live Sunday, May 24, from 8 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. on PBS stations. Each year, the concert features the National Symphony Orchestra.

Sinise and Mantegna will host the concert for the 10th consecutive year. Both have long been dedicated to veterans and issues facing military service members.

The lineup also includes Colin Powell, actress Stefanie Scott, musician Katherine Jenkins and Tessanne Chin, who won TV's "The Voice'' in 2013. Tenor Russell Watson will perform in concert with the National Symphony Orchestra.
