Selena Gomez will join an all-star lineup of talent at the Global Citizen Festival.
Here at Buzzworthy, we’re major supporters of Musicians Making a Difference (which is not to be confused with our other favorite fictional organization, Musicians Who Swim With Sea Animals). I mean, really, if you’re gonna be in the limelight 24/7, you should probably do something productive and charitable with all that fame, right? And on that note, we’re sooo excited that Selena Gomez will be leading an all-star lineup of musicians who are banding together to help end poverty at the Global Citizen Festival, held in New York City’s Central Park, produced by AEG Network Live, and streamed live in a special webcast. So… obviously we’ll be watching, and we expect you will be too. Ending world hunger plus star-spotting opportunities! Biggest win we can think of.
Representing the U.S. Fund For UNICEF (she’s their ambassador!), Selena will be joining Katie Couric, Jeffrey Sachs, Jack Dorsey, Minka Kelly, Sophia Bush, Olivia Wilde, Katharine McPhee, and Erin Heatherton at the festival along with TONS of performers, including Neil Young with Crazy Horse, Foo Fighters, The Black Keys, Band of Horses, and K’naan. OK, sold. So where can we watch?
The Global Citizen Festival will broadcast live from Central Park on Saturday, Sept. 29, at 4 p.m. E.T. Watch it live on Palladia, MTV.com, and VH1.com.
