Winfrey will interview Johnson in Atlanta, Obama in Brooklyn, Ross in Dallas and Jennifer Lopez in Los Angeles.

“What I know for sure is we can all come together to support a stronger, healthier, more abundant life —focused on what makes us feel energized, connected and empowered,” Winfrey said in a statement. “As I travel the country, my hope for this experience is to motivate others to let 2020 be the year of transformation and triumph — beginning first and foremost with what makes us well. This is the year to move forward, let’s make it happen in 2020!”

More than $1 million of proceeds made from the tour will go to the WW Good, a Weight Watchers Reimagined nonprofit that brings food to impoverished communities.
