Also performing are Christine and the Queens, Coldplay, J Balvin, Jennifer Hudson and Yemi Alade.

"Global Citizens around the world are calling for systemic change, change that brings about justice for everyone, everywhere, regardless of where they were born or the color of their skin,” said Hugh Evans, Co-Founder and CEO Of Global Citizen. If we are to end COVID-19 for all, we need our world leaders to commit the billions of dollars needed to develop and equitably deliver testing, treatments and vaccines."

The concert, which follows Global Goal: Unite for Our Future—The Summit, will also be streamed on Apple, Roku, TIDAL, Twitch, Twitter, Yahoo! and YouTube. The Summit will feature panel discussions and interviews with experts and thought-leaders moderated by journalists Katie Couric, Mallika Kapur, Morgan Radford, Isha Sesay and Keir Simmons.  http://globalgoalunite.org.
