Demi Lovato Replaces Selena Gomez at Global Citizen Festival

Demi Lovato pairs a cool graphic tee with a gray suit while leaving for the Made For History fashion event in New York City on Tuesday (September 6).

It was just announced that the 24-year-old “Body Say” singer will take over for Selena Gomez at the upcoming Global Citizen Festival.

“The Global Citizen Festival combines music and activism in a way that inspires and affects millions around the world. I am proud to support this amazing organization’s ongoing efforts to improve global healthcare and to end extreme poverty,” Demi shared in a statement.

Global Citizen founder and CEO Hugh Evans added, “Demi has been an incredible ambassador for global health and gender equality campaigns for many years. We are so thrilled to align her artistry and advocacy and have her join us as a headliner at the 2016 Global Citizen Festival in Central Park!”

The festival aims to move world leaders to enact policy changes regarding women’s equality, education, health, water and sanitation, environment, finance and innovation and food and hunger.

If you missed it, Selena is taking some time off to deal with depression.

FYI: Demi recently also announced a concert exclusively for Marriott Reward Members, which is going to take place on Thursday (September 22) at LA Live in downtown Los Angeles. Details HERE!
