Afrobeats artist, Yemi Alade, is one of the A-list musicians from across the world selected to perform at the ‘Global Goal: Unite for Our Future – The Concert’ scheduled for Saturday, 27th of June.

The concert is backed by the Global Citizen and the European Commission as part of the efforts to fight against COVID-19 and expected to be globally televised and live-streamed.

With the negative effect of the global pandemic with infections exceeding 9 million and heavy restrictions on social gatherings, music has become a great tool to comfort and encourage people against the virus.

Like the Africa Day concert that hosted various African artists with an outstanding delivery of Afrobeats songs to raise funds for communities affected by COVID-19 in Africa, the Global Goal concert aims at raising billions of dollars in private and public donations to help lessen the impact of the pandemic on those living in extreme poverty and communities facing discrimination.

 “Global Citizens around the world are calling for systemic change, change that brings about justice for everyone, everywhere, regardless of where they were born or the color of their skin,” co-founder and CEO of Global Citizen Hugh Evans said. “If we are to end COVID-19 for all, we need our world leaders to commit the billions of dollars needed to equitably deliver testing, treatments, and vaccines.”

The show will be hosted by Hollywood actor Dwayne Johnson ‘The Rock’.  The concert will feature performances by Nigeria’s Yemi Alade, Chloe x Halle, Christine, and the Queens, Coldplay, J Balvin, Jennifer Hudson, Justin Bieber, Quavo, Miley Cyrus, Shakira, and Usher. Yemi Alade is the only Afrobeats artist on the list of performances. Chris Rock, Hugh Jackman, Kerry Washington, Charlize Theron, Forest Whitaker, David Beckham, Salma Hayek Pinault, Billy Porter, Diane Kruger, Antoni Porowski, Ken Jeong, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Olivia Colman are also expected to make appearances at the show.
