New York, NY (Top40 Charts) GRAMMY-winning artist Meghan Trainor will light up the New York City skyline with an Empire State Building music-to-light show on "Friends Day" for the world premiere of her cover of the show's theme song, "I'll Be There for You," on Sunday, September 22, at 8:30 p.m. ET - the exact time Friends debuted on September 22, 1994.

In addition, the song will be synced live on iHeartMedia's Z100, New York's #1 hit music station, at the same time.
Following its exclusive premiere on Z100, the song will be available to download on iTunes and other digital retailers beginning at Midnight Eastern Time on September 23.

The 103-story world-famous building is one of eight of the world's tallest and most iconic landmarks to be illuminated in the familiar red, yellow and blue primary colors of the Friends logo. The can't-miss light show at The Empire State Building is designed by lighting designer Marc Brickman and is timed to Trainor's version of the theme song.

The Empire State Building tower lights will shine from dusk until 2 a.m.
"I can't believe Warner Bros. asked me to do this," said Meghan Trainor. "I'm so honored! I'm so excited that I get to be a part of celebrating such a legendary and iconic show like Friends!"

Meghan Trainor first made history in 2014 with her diamond-certified smash single "All About That Bass." The GRAMMY® Award-winning singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist stands out as "one of only five female artists to achieve a diamond certification from the RIAA" — an honor bestowed upon only 15 other singles to date. Thus far, she has garnered a GRAMMY® Award and achieved eight multi-platinum singles and two platinum albums, sold out three world tours, penned multi-platinum hits for peers across pop and country, and received countless industry awards and nominations. Expanding her influence, she starred on FOX's hit series THE FOUR: Battle for Stardom for two seasons. Following 2018 anthems "No Excuses" and "Let You Be Right," she celebrated Valentine's Day 2019 with the love-themed six-song The Love Train EP, and to kick off the summer, she collaborated with dance music titan Kaskade for their song "With You," paving the way for more surprises to come.

Below is a complete list of participating locations that will light up around the world at 8:30 p.m. (the time the series debuted on September 22, 1994) local time:
