To reunite the world as we are finally seeing a promising light at the end of this dark pandemic-tunnel, and in continued efforts to fight COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy, Inglewood’s SoFi Stadium played host to Global Citizen’s Vax Live concert.
The concert, packed with celebrity guests, was taped in front of a limited, fully-vaccinated audience, and will premiere on ABC, CBS, Fox, and YouTube on May 8. Vax Live is a celebration of science and the COVID-19 vaccine, and it’s a call for equitable distribution world-wide, because ensuring that everyone has vaccine accessibility is how we will beat this pandemic. The production will be both entertaining, and informational. Between musical sets, health and government officials will be addressing the world encouraging vaccinations and debunking vaccine disinformation that, unfortunately, has been spreading at a rapid pace.
Hosted by Selena Gomez, with special performances from Jennifer Lopez, H.E.R., J Balvin and more, tune in to Vax Live on May 8. Other appearances include L.A. County Department of Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer, Inglewood Mayor James Butts, California Governor Gavin Newsom, The Duke of Sussex Prince Harry, Chrissy Teigen and more.
