If there’s anyone who has managed to capture endorsements from some of the most powerful people in entertainment, it’s Beto O’Rourke. Since electing to run for a seat in the U.S. Senate, O’Rourke has picked up endorsements from both LeBron James and Beyonce. While he did not win, his momentum has continued to move full steam ahead. As he enters 2019, it appears that he may pick up another major co-sign.

The OWN Network has announced that Oprah Winfrey will interview Beto O’Rourke in New York at Times Square next month. Alongside O’Rourke, Oprah will take time to sit down with  actor Michael B. Jordan, philanthropist Melinda Gates, actor Bradley Cooper and Time’s Up President, Lisa Borders. The interview will be a part of Oprah’s SuperSoul Conversations series.
