On Friday, April 8, numerous musical artists will come together to take part in the day-long, digital Stand Up for Ukraine rally, which is part of Global Citizen’s campaign to support those in need of aid in Ukraine as well as other countries.
The star-studded list of performers includes Elton John, Bruce Springsteen, Metallica, U2, Jon Bon Jovi, Pearl Jam, The Weeknd, Billie Eilish, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Billy Joel, Stevie Wonder, Jon Batiste, Green Day, Ozzy Osbourne, Weezer, Radiohead, Jonas Brothers, Celine Dion and more.
These mega performances will run throughout the day on Friday, April 8 and takes place just a day before a “pledging summit” to aid displaced Ukrainians. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and European Commission President Ursula von Der Leyen organized the summit.
In a recent Tweet, Elton John wrote, “I’m devastated to see Ukrainians suffering - including the over 1/4 of a million people living with HIV there. Join @ejaf & @GlblCtzn as we #StandUpforUkraine to show our leaders we need to support Ukrainian refugees. Take action at http://globalcitizen.org/ukraine.”
