Featuring many cast members past and present whose lives were impacted and hearts affected by St. John's friendship and kindness, the tribute will celebrate the late actor's life and the legacy he left behind.

"He carried me. And now, he's gone," shared an emotional Shemar Moore, a former cast member, in a promo for the special. "But I'm gonna try to make him proud."

St. John appeared on the long-running daytime soap opera from 1991 until the time of his death, during which time he was nominated for nine Daytime Emmy Awards, winning two.

His character's final episode, which aired last Tuesday, saw the the characters mourn the loss of St. John's Neil Winters in a somber storyline that featured Winters' passing and included a scene of many of the character's family members somberly embracing in what served as a tribute to St. John himself.
