Selena Gomez is organizing a virtual concert on May 8th 2021. Famous singers such as Jennifer Lopez and H.E.R. will be appearing in the live broadcast to raise money for COVID-19 vaccines. This concert is inspired from last year’s fundraiser concert called ‘One World - Together at Home’ in which singers such as Lady Gaga performed from their homes.
This year’s concert being hosted by Selena is called ‘VAX LIVE: The Concert to Reunite the World’. It is being held in collaboration with Global Citizen which is an international advocacy group. The concert has two purposes. Firstly, to raise money for COVID-19 vaccines and secondly, to push the world leaders to provide vaccines to poorer nations.
“This is really an opportunity to call on world leaders to make sure that the 27 million heroic healthcare workers around the world that don’t yet have access to a vaccine can get access over the coming months,” said Global Citizen Chief Executive Hugh Evans.
This is a great initiative that Selena Gomez is hosting. I am really excited for the concert and I hope it is able to achieve its goals of mass vaccination for poorer nations.
