TORONTO -- Kelly Clarkson will host the 10th annual We Day in Toronto.

Organizers of the Sept. 28 youth-empowerment event say speakers and performers will include Hedley, Vanessa Hudgens and Shawn Hook, Andre De Grasse, Mia Farrow, Ban Ki-Moon, and Lilly Singh.

Event co-founder Craig Kielburger says We Day is about celebrating "a generation of empowered youth, who have come together in the hope that the world can be better a place."

Other participants this year include Sabrina Carpenter, Sofia Carson, Rick Hansen, Gaten Matarazzo, Penny Oleksiak, George Takei, Jacob Tremblay, Alexandre Trudeau and Spencer West.
