Global Citizen Live will call on leaders to deliver several goals by September 1st, including one billion trees planted and preserved to help prevent global temperatures from rising, one billion vaccines to the poorest countries, and meals for the 41 million people on the brink of famine.
“Over the last year and a half, we’ve seen music bring communities together and inspire action during one of the most challenging times of our generation,” Katie Hill, SVP, Head of Music, Entertainment and Artist Relations, Global Citizen, said in a statement. “We’re excited to join these incredible artists to unite people across the globe on September 25th as we hold world leaders and business leaders accountable to rectify the damage caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. As we carefully resume Global Citizen’s live events, we couldn’t be more grateful to each of these artists for donating their time and performances to make an impact through this urgent campaign.”
