Fred Rogers was beloved by millions, his storytelling and gentle presence a familiar comfort on television sets across the country on Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, which began airing in 1962 and went on to be one of the most cherished programs in history.

Rogers’ life and the show left such an indelible mark on society that he has become something of a legend over the years. His legacy was the focus of a fantastic 2018 documentary Won’t You Be My Neighbor? and, now, a star-studded tribute album bringing back several of the songs featured on the program.

In late 2019, a compilation album was released featuring a number of music icons paying tribute to Rogers’ legacy, and Thank You, Mister Rogers is a very warm celebration of Rogers’ timeless presence. It features contributions from Rita Wilson, Lee Greenwood, Sandi Patty, Kellie Pickler, Vanessa Williams, Jim Brickman, Jaci Velasquez, Micky Dolenz (of The Monkees), Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis, Jr. (of The Fifth Dimension), The Cowsills, Tom Bergeron and Jon Secada.
