Now that Prince Harry has returned to his home in Montecito, he and his wife, Meghan Markle, are wasting no time getting back to business. And we are finally getting details on their next big event (which is taking place next weekend).
Turns out, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have signed on as the campaign chairs for Global Citizen’s upcoming Vax Live: The Concert to Reunite the World. The star-studded event, which will be hosted by Selena Gomez, is being held in an effort to “inspire vaccine confidence” and help give everyone access to the COVID-19 vaccine.
Global CItizen revealed the news in a tweet on Tuesday, writing, “#VaxLive is almost here! On May 8, join us, @SelenaGomez, Prince Harry and Meghan, Duke and Duchess of Sussex, @JLo, @FooFighters, and more for a show with big names and an even bigger message: everyone, everywhere deserves access to a COVID-19 vaccine.”
According to the website, the concert is “celebrating the hope that COVID-19 vaccines are offering families and communities around the world” and “calling on world leaders to step up to make sure vaccines are accessible for all.”
In addition to the ex-royal couple and Gomez, the event will also include appearances from Chrissy Teigen, Ben Affleck, Olivia Munn and Jimmy Kimmel, with performances from H.E.R., J. Balvin, Jennifer Lopez and the Foo Fighters.
Vax Live: The Concert to Reunite the World will take place on May, 7, at 8 pm EST on select channels and on YouTube.
We’ll be there.
