Janet Jackson is booked and busy!Array
The formidable Pop force will bring her blazing brand of fierce to the Global Citizen Festival next month and so will a number of other major names – including Cardi B and The Weeknd.
Set to take place September 29th at New York’s Central Park (Great Lawn), the multi-act special will broadcast live on MSNBC.
Hosted by Hugh Jackman and Deborra-lee Furness, the event will also boast performances from Janelle Monáe and Shawn Mendes.
Presenters include Naomi Campbell, Cynthia Erivo, Danai Gurira, and La La Anthony.
As with all things staged by Global Citizen, this year’s festival sets out to raise awareness about extreme poverty around the world and the organization’s aim to eradicate it altogether.
On this occasion, there will be specific focus on ensuring that world leaders deliver on their obligation to the broader cause.
Suffice to say, the line-up looks incredible!
It’s great to see Janet really back out there in a major way and cool to have Cardi bouncing back post-birth of baby.
