On Sunday the 9th of May, 1Magic will be bringing you a concert like no other. Global Citizen will present VAX LIVE: The Concert to Reunite the World, a global broadcast and streaming special that aims to inspire vaccine confidence around the world and help get the COVID-19 vaccines to everyone, everywhere.
The Global Citizen website adds that “VAX LIVE: The Concert to Reunite the World will celebrate hope as families and communities reunite after receiving the vaccine, and call on world leaders to step up for equitable distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine.
The broadcast will be taped before its airing and will comply with the strictest of COVID-19 compliance guidelines. We are working with the LA County Health Department, SoFi Stadium, Live Nation, iCrowd, CrowdRx, CSC Security, CMC Global Event Services, Ticketmaster, and others to ensure that we can host an event that is safe and aligns with state and county guidance.”
“We are working closely with partners to create a limited capacity audience of fully vaccinated frontline workers who will be required to wear masks. We look forward to sharing these plans as they are ready and as the situation in California evolves.”
How does it exactly work?
Hosted by the talented superstar Selena Gomez, the aim of this amazing concert is to make sure that the time we’ve gone through in the world which has never been seen and brought so much pain and struggle to many people’s lives comes to an end soon. Global Citizen will be calling on world leaders to step up and make sure that vaccines are accessible for all so that the pandemic can finally be a thing of the past for everyone, everywhere.
Now, music is the one thing that no matter what happens or where you are, brings people together. In times of sadness and happiness, this is the food to the soul that speaks to everyone in every language so what better way than to have this be the one thing that reunites the world as it’s always done.
Who will be there
Firstly, the campaign chairs, Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. They will also be joined by world leaders, President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden, Vice-President Kamala Harris, President Emmanuel Macron, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and Prime Minister Plenković of Croatia.
