The Global Citizen Live event took place over the weekend spanning across 8 cities with performances from all the artists you could imagine for 24 hours. The event aimed to unit the world to defend the planet and defeat poverty. The broadcast featured artists, celebrities and world leaders coming together to create change and impact climate and poverty. Those who were part of the line up include: Black Eyed Peas, H.E.R. Coldplay, Stevie Wonder, Stormzy, Shawn Mendes, Camila Cabello, Ed Sheeran, and more!
With performances from all over the world, including: Lagos, London, Los Angeles, New York City, Paris, Rio de Janeiro, Seoul, and Sydney, Global Citizen Live is part of Global Citizen’s 2021 global campaign, a Recovery Plan for the World. The Recovery Plan focuses on five key objectives: ending COVID-19 for all, ending the hunger crisis, resuming learning for all, protecting the planet, and advancing equity for all.
Check out some of the performances from Black Eyed Peas and H.E.R.
BEP performed their set live from Paris and you know they had to sing their unity anthem “Where Is the Love.” J Rey Soul and apl.de.ap killed the set and it’s just so nice to see live shows happening again.
They had a full set and performed some of their hits like “Pump It,” “Let’s Get It Started,” “Hit It,” and tons more!
On the West Coast, H.E.R. performed an inspirational set with tracks, “Hold On,” “Fight for You,” which is an Oscar winner for Best Original Song, and “We Made It.”
A surprise we did not see coming, but needed was H.E.R., Stevie Wonder, and Sheila E. finally meeting each other. Stevie Wonder praised H.E.R. for her rendition of “Love’s In Need of Love Today” during the CNN event, “Shine a Light.” We need some sort of collaboration soon!
