The benefit concert, which aims to raise awareness to end poverty and improve the planet, will take place on the Great Lawn of Central Park on September 26 in New York City.
“I am honored to be a part of the Global Citizen Festival,” Beyonce said in a statement. “It has always stood for improving the lives of people everywhere, but this year is especially rewarding as we all join focuses and utilize our talents for one goal: to end extreme poverty globally.”
The event is ticketed but is free – you can earn a ticket by completing an “action” of calling the U.S. State Department and asking them to set aside 50% of the U.S. foreign aid budget towards ending poverty. Find out more at the Global Citizen website.
The concert will air live on TV and will be broadcast on YouTube.
