Lizzo calls for end to institutional racism at Global Citizen Live


Lizzo had an important message for the crowd during her performance at Global Citizen Live on Saturday evening.

Dressed in a hot pink catsuit, the 33-year-old singer hit the stage in New York City’s Central Park to perform a series of her biggest songs, including “Good as Hell,” “Truth Hurts” and “Juice.”

During her set, the Grammy winner also took a moment to address the audience and condemn institutional racism in the U.S. and across the world.

In addition to Lizzo, the Global Citizen Live event features performances from Jennifer Lopez, Elton John, Coldplay, Shawn Mendes and various others.

The 24-hour broadcast from cities around the world is calling on G7 countries and the European Union to share at least 1 billion COVID-19 vaccine doses with those most in need and support calls for a waiver on COVID-19 vaccine intellectual property rights. The campaign is also calling on vaccine providers to share mRNA technology with the new World Health Organization-backed transfer hub based in South Africa.
