It will be hosted by singer Selena Gomez.

The ‘Lose You To Love Me’ hitmaker says the show is aimed at raising money to ensure equitable vaccine distribution around the world.

“This is a historic moment to encourage people around the world to take the COVID-19 vaccine when it becomes available to them, call on world leaders to share vaccine doses equitably, and to bring people together for a night of music in a way that hasn’t felt possible in the past year. I can’t wait to be a part of it,” she told Global Citizen.
