The Concert during the Lockdown
SABC 3 is proud to announce that the Global Goal: Unite for Our Future—The Concert, will debut on Saturday, June 27 2020 at 21:30 – 23:30.
With venues and bars still under lockdown the SABC 3 brings its viewers this globally televised and digitally streamed special which will highlight the disproportionate impact COVID-19 has on marginalized communities - including people of colour, those living in extreme poverty and others facing discrimination.
The Concert hosted by Dwayne Johnson, will feature performances from Chloe x Halle, Christine and the Queens, Coldplay, J Balvin, Jennifer Hudson, Justin Bieber and Quavo, Miley Cyrus, Shakira, Usher and Yemi Alade. It will also include appearances from Antoni Porowski, Billy Porter, Charlize Theron, Chris Rock, David Beckham, Derrick Johnson, Diane Kruger, Forest Whitaker, Hugh Jackman, Ken Jeong, Kerry Washington, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Olivia Colman, Opal Tometi, Salma Hayek Pinault and more.
The virtual broadcast will celebrate innovators, scientists, health workers, activists and organisations working to develop and distribute COVID-19 tests, treatments and vaccines to everyone and everywhere who need them.
The Global Goal: Unite for our Future campaign was launched last month under the patronage of European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen. The Campaign, also supported by Bloomberg Philanthropies, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the Wellcome Trust, focuses on addressing the pandemic’s impact on the most vulnerable and seeks to build back communities and economies with freedom and justice for all. Calling on individuals to take action, and asking governments, corporate leaders and philanthropists to make their commitments toward the fair distribution of COVID-19 tools and treatments, Global Goal: Unite for our Future aims to strengthen healthcare systems so no one is left behind in this pandemic.
Due to the concert the movie Simply Irresistible which was scheduled to air at 21H30 will not be broadcast.
