Karamo Brownwill have a busy Oscar night…
The 39-year-old part-Cuban American television personality and his Queer Eye co-stars will serve as co-hosts at Sir Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Academy Awards viewing party on February 9.
The legendary performer, who inspired Taron Egerton‘s Golden Globe-nominated performance in Rocketman, has drafted Brown, Jonathan Van Ness, Tan Franceand Bobby Berkto join honorary chairs John and husband David Furnishat the helm, though its unclear where the fifth Queer Eye star, Antoni Porowski, will be.
Also taking the stage will be the British actor, singer-songwriter and Brits Critic Choice Award winner Sam Fender, who has been tapped to perform.
The Oscars viewing party event will once again take place in West Hollywood Park, serving as a benefit for the Elton John AIDS Foundation.
“Each year we are blessed to have incredible artists do what they do best at our party and this year will be another special night not to miss. Given we have some of the wonderful hosts of Queer Eye at our party, we all wanted to use the event to raise funds for our work with LGBT ommunities around the world, many of whom are 20 times more vulnerable to the disease than their straight peers. AIDS isn’t over until no one gets left behind,” John said Thursday in a statement.
