The event, which takes place at the White House Ellipse, will also feature performances by veteran singer Patti LaBelle, vocal group The Tenors, R&B star Ne-Yo, and Country singer Chely Wright.

Artist Steve Miller, pop group Fifth Harmony, and duo Nico & Vinz will also be on stage Dec. 4.

This year’s lighting marks the 92nd year of the tradition, which was started under President Calvin Coolidge.

Hanks was a top donor and fundraiser for Obama’s presidential campaigns.
