Selena Gomez Is Hosting A Concert To Help Make COVID-19 Vaccines Available Worldwide

The world continues to try to make COVID-19 vaccines more available across the globe, and pop star Selena Gomez is now joining the cause.

The singer announced that she will be hosting a virtual music event dubbed "VAX LIVE: The Concert to Reunite the World," with the goal of helping the poorest countries in the world get 2 billion COVID-19 vaccine doses by asking governments, corporations, and philanthropists to invest $22.1 billion in the Access to COVID-19 Tools (ACT) Accelerator.

"This is a historic moment to encourage people around the world to take the COVID-19 vaccine when it becomes available to them, call on world leaders to share vaccine doses equitably and to bring people together for a night of music in a way that hasn’t felt possible in the past year. I can’t wait to be a part of it," Gomez said in a press release. 

Joining her in the livestream will be Jennifer Lopez, Eddie Vedder, J Balvin, the Foo Fighters, and H.E.R., with special appearances by David Letterman, Olivia Munn, Sean Penn, and others who will soon be announced. 

The virtual show will air on Saturday, May 8, at 8 p.m. ET, and can be watched on ABC, ABC News Live, CBS, and YouTube.
