Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will host the “Global Goal: Unite for Our Future” concert Saturday, June 27 to shed a light on communities disproportionately affected by the coronavirus pandemic with the help of a few stars.
Miley Cyrus, Shakira, J Balvin, Justin Bieber and Quavo, Jennifer Hudson, Coldplay, Usher, Christine and the Queens, Chloe x Halle and Yemi Alade will take the virtual stage, with Billy Porter, Hugh Jackman and more household names making appearances in the live stream.
The concert supplements the Global Goal: Unite for Our Future campaign, designed by Global Citizen and the European Commission to coordinate the development of COVID-19 tests, treatments and vaccines. Musicians like Cyrus will tap their mics to sing and sound off during the international pledging summit with governments, corporate leaders and philanthropists committing to combatting coronavirus by distributing much-needed tools and treatments.
“This moment requires all of us to act. As Global Citizens, we’re calling on leaders around the world to combat the disproportionate impact COVID-19 has on marginalized communities by committing funds to develop and deliver tests, treatments, and therapeutics,” Cyrus said in a press statement. “Because of this global effort, we will be more able to ensure that everyone, everywhere has access to COVID-19 testing and treatment, regardless of their income or where they live.”
The concert will simulcast digitally across Global Citizen’s Facebook, Twitter and YouTube accounts as well as Apple (Apple Music and Beats 1), Tidal, Vogue Paris, Twitch, Yahoo, LADBible, and Brut. In the U.S., the “Global Goal: Unite for Our Future” concert will broadcast on NBC, MSNBC, MTV, Bloomberg Television, Apple TV, Roku, Insight TV and Deezer networks at 8 p.m. ET. Listeners can also tune in on iHeart Radio and SiriusXM from 8 to 10 p.m. ET.
