We start with "Southern Jamboree." Wynton Marsalis plays New Orleans jazz; Marc O'Conner plays country fiddle with Faith Hill; then B.B. King, Al Green, and the Pointer Sisters perform R&B. Detour a bit farther south for the Miami sound by Gloria Estefan, Tito Puente and Sheila E. Then to Little Richard for more straight-ahead southern rock 'n' roll. Finally, all the musical styles collide for a jam session with some heavy influence from zydeco.
That's collide, literally. The acts are going to move around the stadium on floats that will park together for the finale.
With that segment done, many of the same artists will return to a main stage to join Stevie Wonder for what Shaffer told the Hollywood Reporter will be "a more informal concert...a party for the athletes for all their years of training and weeks of competing. We will rock the house."
