From Jennifer Lopez and J Balvin, to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex – aka Harry and Meghan, our favorite A-list Hollywood celebrities, pop stars and US politicians will be gathering for Global Citizen’s Vax Live: The Concert to Reunite the World.
On May 8th 2021, pop sensation Selena Gomez will be hosting the star studded event in a bid to raise money for COVID-19 vaccines and allow for equal and fair access to all.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s participation in the event will see them give a speech about the campaign in the duration of the event that will be televised, as it falls in line with their efforts to lead a charitable cause that helps to raise money for COVAX, a vaccine sharing program.
The fundraising benefit will also see the likes of US president Joe Biden, and Vice President Kamala Harris participating as part of their “We Can Do This” national initiative to increase uptake in the Covid-19 vaccine.
Chrissy Teigen, Sean Penn, David Letterman, Ben Affleck, and many more will also be taking part, and viewers can enjoy performances by the likes of H.E.R, Jennifer Lopez, and J Balvin, with appearances from President Emmanuel Macron of France, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of Canada, and Prime Minister Plenkovic of Croatia.
