Some of the biggest names in music from around the world are to perform and lend their star power to the Global Citizen Live scheduled for this Saturday.
The event is part of the Global Citizen movement that aims to end poverty by 2030. Global Citizen Live in particular is to raise awareness on climate change, vaccine equality, and famine.
“Across six continents, artists will help rally citizens in demanding that governments, major corporations, and philanthropists work together to defend the planet and defeat poverty,” NGO Global Citizen said in a statement.
The star-studded line-up will use its impact to push for action at the G20 next month and the COP26 climate meeting in November.
Billie Eilish and Coldplay will headline in New York’s Central Park, joined by Jennifer Lopez, Camila Cabello, Shawn Mendes, and Burna Boy, among others. Ed Sheeran will perform in Paris alongside Elton John, with Doja Cat, Black Eyed Peas, and Stormzy supporting.
And then there will be Femi Kuti in Nigeria, Alok in Rio, and Duran Duran and Kylie Minogue in London. Other artists like Metallica and The Weeknd are also involved, through live or filmed performances.
