Harry and Megan join Biden and the stars of art and politics in a ceremony to encourage the distribution of vaccines

The British "Guardian" newspaper said that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex Prince Harry and his wife Megan Markle will join the US President, Joe Biden, in a concert in Los Angeles aimed at increasing the global vaccination efforts.

The newspaper stated that Harry and Megan are "campaign heads" for the high-profile Vax Live event. Selena Gomez will be performing, organized by Global Citizen Foundation, on Saturday 8 May, and will feature musical performances by icons from the world of cinema and politics, such as Jennifer Lopez, Pearl Jam Eddie Feder, and Vu Fighters.

The private broadcast aims to encourage donations to Kovacs, which works to provide vaccines to low and middle income countries.

In a statement, the Sussex family said: “Over the past year, our world has witnessed pain, loss and conflict. Now we need to heal and heal - together. We cannot leave anyone behind. We will all benefit, and we will all be safer, when everyone everywhere has equal opportunity. "To obtain the vaccine, we must continue the fair distribution of vaccines, and then, restore confidence in our common humanity."

Guests, including Ben Affleck, Chrissy Teigen, David Letterman, Jail King, Jimmy Kimmel and Sean Bean, will speak from all over the world.

Biden, along with the First Lady of the United States, Jill Biden, and Vice President, Kamala Harris, will also be shown notably through Global Citizen's partnership with the White House "We Can Do It" initiative, which encourages precautionary measures, including wearing masks. .

Organizers say French President Emmanuel Macron, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Croatian Prime Minister Andre Blinkovic are also due to appear.

A trailer for Vax Live promised that it would contain "big names and bigger message". It will be recorded at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles, and it will broadcast on May 8th across networks including ABC, CBS and iHeartMedia radio stations.

The newspaper said that this announcement comes at a time when the United States is heading to deliver 60 million doses of the AstraZenka vaccine to various countries as part of the global campaign to combat the virus.

Global Citizen calls itself the "Active Citizens Using Their Collective Voices to End Extreme Poverty by 2030". The ceremony was described as a call for world leaders to ensure vaccines are available to all.
