A Celebration of America’s Unsung Heroes with Special Guest Appearances

It’s a Thanksgiving holiday special like no other when ABC News anchor Robin Roberts canvases the country in search of America’s unsung heroes and celebrates them with surprises that will profoundly change their lives as part of “Thank You America!” airing Thanksgiving evening, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 27 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

Perfect for the whole family to gather and watch this Thanksgiving holiday, “Thank You, America!” shines a light on the American spirit of gratitude. From a sanitation worker, who, along with his wife, founded a food pantry that feeds countless of homeless people to a couple who have foster parented more than 90 children throughout the years – transforming lives and giving young people a new lease on life – “Thank You, America!” recognizes ordinary people doing extraordinary things in their communities.

“Thank You, America!” includes a special tribute to the me-n and women of The United States Armed Forces, many of whom are separated from their families and loved ones during this time of the year. Additionally, global music superstar Taylor Swift talks with Robin Roberts about Thanksgiving and all that she is thankful for this holiday season, and Jimmy Kimmel (ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live”) joins Roberts to help surprise a deserving – and unsuspecting audience member – in Los Angeles, California.
