Global Citizen Live is back with another benefit concert—this one lasting a full 24 hours.
This weekend, Global Citizen Live will host a fundraising show dedicated to COVID-19 relief. Taking place across six continents, the 24-hour event comes under Global Citizen's Recovery Plan for the World, a campaign dedicated to kick-starting equitable global recovery from COVID-19. The idea is to bring together governments, philanthropists, and private sectors to work toward financial contributions that will "[end] the hunger crisis, [resume] learning for all, [protect] the planet, and [advance] equity for all," per the organization's website.
"The COVID-19 pandemic has pushed millions of people into hunger, forced more than a billion children out of school, made communities more vulnerable to climate change, and deepened inequalities," the site outlined. "Equitable recovery is key to ensuring the world doesn't undo years of progress in the fight to end extreme poverty."
Celebrities appearing for the cause include Jennifer Lopez, Doja Cat, Lizzo, Billie Eilish, Meek Mill, H.E.R., Camila Cabello, Shawn Mendes, BTS, Black Eyed Peas, Coldplay, Demi Lovato, and more. Special guests also include Alessia Cara, Burna Boy, Cyndi Lauper, Jon Batiste, and Lang Lang. To tune in at home, read on for more details on how to livestream the benefit concert.
