HER’s show takes place at the Dunbar Hotel, known in the 1930s and 1940s as a center of black culture in Los Angeles.

The singer, whose real name is Gabriella Wilson, will pay a musical tribute to the famous venue, with performances by the likes of Billie Holiday and Duke Ellington, as she imagines what the Dunbar Hotel would look like if it were still in existence in 2021.

Kid Cudi’s episode features new music from his album Man on the Moon III and a collaboration with the International Space Orchestra.

It is the world’s first orchestra made up of space scientists from the NASA Ames Research Center, the SETI Institute and the International Space University and will serve as the rapper’s backing band.
