Stevie Wonder has been added to the list of stars performing around the world during the 24-hour series of Global Citizen Live concerts on September 25.
The 25-time Grammy winner will headline the Los Angeles concert, which will also feature H.E.R., Chloe X Halle and many more.
“It is again my pleasure and honor to join with all of the artists who are using their gift of song to celebrate the Global Citizens’ event by doing our part in working against global warming, starvation and singing for equality around the world,” Wonder said in a statement.
It was also announced Thursday that Nile Rodgers & Chic will perform at the Global Citizen Live concert in London
“I see ‘Global Citizen Live’ as a megaphone that can point the power of the people directly at those with the ability to make the worldwide, systemic changes needed to protect the most vulnerable people and to defend our planet,” Rodgers said. “It’s our job to cry out when promises aren’t fulfilled. We want to encourage our leaders to ensure there are good times ahead for everyone.”
As previously reported, Jennifer Lopez, Lizzo and Meek Mill will be among the artists performing at the New York City concert.
In addition to the LA, London and New York concerts, shows also will be simultaneously held on September 25 in Paris; Rio De Janeiro, Brazil; Sydney, Australia; and Lagos, Nigeria.
ABC News Live will broadcast the full event starting at 12:30 p.m. ET on September 25. Tickets for Paris, New York City, and Los Angeles can be earned by taking action at GlobalCitizenLive.org.
The goal of Global Citizen Live is to encourage people to call upon world leaders, philanthropists and politicians to prioritize vaccine equality, climate change and famine.
