Global Citizen has shared a number of mini, live streaming concerts on their official social media platforms, but Saturday’s even will be huge. There are more than fifty singers and musicians scheduled and the line-up is a virtual who’s who in the music industry. Some of the acts Lady Gaga has enlisted include Paul McCartney, Billie Eilish, Taylor Swift, The Rolling Stones, John Legend, Adam Lambert, Sam Heughan, Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes. In addition to musical performances, a slew of celebrities will appear as well.
Here is the official description of Global Citizen’s mission.
“In the face of lockdowns and losses, it’s easy to feel helpless — but there are things we can all do to beat coronavirus. From taking care to wash our hands to staying at home, to calling on governments, big business and billionaires to step up, it’s on all of us to take action. Join us and we’ll follow up with actions you can take to increase your impact.
The first step: stop the spread of the virus. That means keeping yourself and others safe by staying out of public as much as you can. Take the pledge: as a Global Citizen, I’m staying home!”
