Check out the new promo for Fox’s upcoming musical event of the spring, “The Passion” hosted by Tyler Perry. The two-hour program will tell the 2000 year-old-story of the last hours of Jesus Christ‘s life on earth and will air live from New Orleans. Special musical guests include Trisha Yearwood as Mary, Chris Daughtry as Judas, Prince Royce as Peter and JenCarlos Canela as Jesus.

Set in modern day, “The Passion” will follow the dramatic and inspirational story of Jesus of Nazareth, as he presides over the Last Supper, and then is betrayed by Judas, put on trial by Pontius Pilate, convicted, crucified and resurrected. The story will unfold live at some of New Orleans’ most iconic locations, while featuring a procession of hundreds of people carrying a 20-foot, illuminated cross from Champion Square outside the Superdome to the live stage at Woldenburg Park on the banks of the Mississippi River.

“The Passion” airs on Palm Sunday, March 20 at 8:00 p.m. EST on Fox.
