As live music sees yet another month of silence, the new normal of digital concerts has already set in with fans all around the world.
Global Citizen is presenting a massive concert—Global Goal: Unite for Our Future—for you to wind down to on Sunday (06/28). It features the likes of Chloe x Halle, Christine and the Queens, Coldplay, J Balvin, Jennifer Hudson, Justin Bieber and Quavo, Miley Cyrus, Shakira, Usher, Yemi Alade, and hosted by Fast & Furious star Dwayne Johnson. They will also be joined by Ken Jeong, David Beckham, and Hugh Jackman, who are set to make guest appearances during the event.
Part of Global Citizen's goals to provide equal treatment to all citizens regardless of their nationalities, races, or social status who have been hit by COVID-19, Global Goal: Unite for Our Future aims to champion this mindset through the livestream concert.
