Dwayne Johnson will be hosting the Global Goal: Unite for Our Future – The Concert special, which is part of a campaign meant to shine a light on the impact of COVID-19.
The Global Goal: Unite for Our Future campaign launched last month and is focusing on addressing the way the coronavirus pandemic has impacted vulnerable communities. The campaign is being put on by Global Citizen and the European Commission.
It also encourages individuals, leaders, governments, and corporations to commit to being fair with the distribution of COVID-19 tools as well as the treatments that are given.
For this there will two events acting as a continuation of the campaign being the Global Goal: Unite for Our Future – The Concert hosted by Johnson and the Global Goal: Unite for Our Future – The Summit.
The concert will feature performances from Chloe x Halle, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Coldplay, Usher, Shakira, Jennifer Hudson, and more.
The concert will also include appearances from Hugh Jackman, Antoni Porowski, David Beckham, Ken Jeong, Billy Porter, Charlize Theron, Olivia Colman, Chris Rock, Kerry Washington, Forest Whitaker, and others.
To be apart of this concert experience hosted by Dwayne Johnson mark the date as it will be airing on Saturday, June 27th, worldwide on several networks and platforms such as NBC, MTV, Twitter, and YouTube, alongside many other broadcasters. It can also be streamed on Apple, Brut, Roku, Insight TV, TIDAL, Twitch, and Yahoo.
“Global Citizens around the world are calling for systemic change, change that brings about justice for everyone, everywhere, regardless of where they were born or the color of their skin. If we are to end COVID-19 for all, we need our world leaders to commit the billions of dollars needed to equitably deliver testing, treatments, and vaccines,” Global Citizen co-founder and CEO Hugh Evans said in his statement.
“Global Goal: Unite for Our Future—The Concert will bring the centuries-old concept of music as a motivator for change and unity, together with science and data, to honor the problem-solvers — including doctors, scientists, lab workers, essential workers, and human rights advocates — who are racing to not only create the cure for COVID-19 but also to ensure that it’s available for everyone who needs it,” Hugh Evans added.
Dwayne Johnson said, “I’m proud to join Global Citizen and the European Commission to host the Global Goal: Unite for Our Future concert. The event aims to lift the global community that is tackling equitable access to healthcare and other enormous injustices facing our world. This critical moment in history requires all of us — so let’s join together to chart a better future, for everyone.”

The concert hosted by Johnson follows Global Goal: Unite for Our Future — The Summit, which will be streamed on social media platforms and can be accessed at http://globalgoalunite.org.
That event will feature world leaders, corporations, and philanthropists announcing their commitments in helping develop a fair distribution of COVID-19 tests, treatments, and vaccines. As well as to rebuild communities that have been badly affected by the pandemic.
Like Dwayne Johnson, many will be involved in the Global Global Goal: Unite for Our Future campaign and it’s good to know that people all around the world are actively working towards making it a little more bearable.
