Eva Longoria is hosting an event ahead of President brack Obama's inauguration, in which top Latino entertainers will gather for performances at the Kennedy Center.

George Lopez, Mario Lopez and Rita Moreno are among the performers for "Latino Inaugural 2013: In Performance at the Kennedy Center," which is scheduled to take place on Jan. 20.

Longoria, a co-chair of Mr. Obama's inauguration festivities, is serving as the host.

The Latino inaugural gathering is driven in part by organizers of The Futuro Fund, which helped mobilize Latino support for the Obama-Biden re-election.

The Kennedy Center is presenting the event free of charge in two of its large theaters.
