The Cleveland Police Department was chosen out of 30 first responder agencies to appear on CBS television's “Lip Sync to the Rescue” special broadcast.
The CPD will be the only agency to represent Tennessee.
The CPD's lip sync video to Camila Cabello's song, "Havana," was a sensation when it was entered in a nationwide lip sync "battle" last year.
So far, the video has received over 1,181,424 views on YouTube. Will Vest and Zach Camp filmed the video.
No information has been relayed concerning the end of the voting period; however, a recent email from CBS revealed that 1 million votes have already been received to date, according to Sgt. Evie West, CPD's public information officer.
The program will be filming in Los Angeles this summer.
West said the voting process will narrow the list of qualifiers to 10, with the finalists appearing on the special, where they will be narrowed to two. From there, the public watching the TV special will vote to break the tie.
“There is no cap on the amount of times a voter can cast a vote, so we are asking our friends, family and brothers and sisters from other agencies to please cast multiple votes,” West said.
The top vote getters will be featured in the CBS special hosted by Cedric The Entertainer.
"We are so excited about this show and want to celebrate the #LipSyncChallenge that took the country by storm, and honor our first responders through this medium," West said.
The CPD is asking residents to post the link listed below to their social media accounts.
“Let’s join together to spotlight our great state of Tennessee and the tremendous effort we are making to engage communities locally, nationally and globally,” West said.
