‘Vax Live’ Concert Led By Prince Harry And Jennifer Lopez

The Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry joined pop stars including J-Lo in Los Angeles at a star-studded concert on Sunday. The concert aimed at urging faster and even more global vaccinations. Prince Harry voiced support for India during its current devastating Covid-19 outbreak.

The ‘Vax Live’ concert to reunite the world featured pre-recorded messages from the Pope and President Joe Biden.

In-person appearances from Hollywood stars such as Ben Affleck and Sean Penn also lightened up the concert.

They pre-taped the show in front of thousands of fully vaccinated spectators at a vast California stadium on Sunday. The show will air on television and YouTube On May 8.

‘’Tonight, we stand in solidarity with the millions of families across India, who are battling a devastating second wave. The virus does not respect borders, and access to the vaccine cannot be determined by geography,’’ said Prince Harry.

This became the Prince’s first in-person appearance at a major public event in California since moving to the U.S. with his wife, Meghan Markle. Markle however, did not appear at the event at all.

An international organization called Global Citizen organized the event aiming at battling vaccine disinformation. It called on world leaders and corporations to take action and make donations toward the cause.

Thousands of vaccinated spectators filled up the recently completed SoFi stadium named Los Angeles’ giant. However, most of these were frontline medical workers, many of whom were dressed in nurse and doctor uniforms.

Selena Gomez hosted the proceedings and called for ‘’doses and dollars’’ to go to the world’s poorest countries.

A glittering J-Lo confessed to being forced to celebrate Christmas without her mother for the first time in 2020 due to the restrictions.

Prince Harry took to the larger circular stage in the middle of the arena dressed casually in a blue shirt. He described online disinformation about vaccines as a ‘’humanitarian crisis’’ that is ‘’getting worse’’.
