Everyone in the audience was fully vaccinated. Media and production staff needed to show a negative COVID test before entering the stadium.

“Vaccines are safe. I promise.” Biden, who accompanied in a video message with First Lady Jill Biden, said, “They work.” Both appeared as part of the “We Can Do It” initiative to increase confidence in COVID-19 vaccines.

The president continued: “We are working with leaders around the world to share more vaccines and increase production to make sure every country has the vaccines it needs.” “If we get this done, we won’t have to miss another moment.”

The event was part of a growing choir seeking a wider and more equitable distribution of COVID-19 vaccines.

Global Citizen said $ 53.8 million (197.6 million dirhams) in charitable and corporate commitments helped purchase nearly 10.3 million doses, exceeding the target from the Vax Live campaign.

Prince Harry said getting vaccines available worldwide is imperative, especially those in the poorest countries. He said he was in solidarity with India, which is experiencing a “devastating” second wave of the virus.

“The vaccine must be distributed to everyone, everywhere,” said the Duke of Sussex. He and his wife Megan are leading an effort to raise money for the COVAX Vaccine Sharing Program, which hopes to generate $ 19 billion to pay for vaccines for medical workers.

“We cannot really rest or recover until there is a fair distribution in every corner of the world,” he said. “The virus does not respect borders, and access to the vaccine cannot be determined by geography.”

The event also highlighted the efforts of first responders and healthcare workers during the pandemic. Presenter Selena Gomez described key workers and frontline workers as “trusted” and “brave”.

“Many of us had to stay home, but you had no other choice,” the singer said. “You set an example for all of us, whether in how you remain in the job or that we need to be vaccinated as quickly as possible.”

Every musical performance made things seem almost natural as the attendees stood on their seats side by side while the others danced in their masks. Others hugged with enthusiasm.

Before Lopez’s performance, she told the audience that she was unable to spend Christmas with her mom. The singer continued calling her fully impregnated mother on stage, then the two sang Neil Diamond’s performance of Sweet Caroline.

“When I was thinking about the song I’m going to sing tonight, I remembered the song she was singing to me when I was a kid,” said Lopez, who later sang her 2016 single “Don’t Have Mama”.

Eddie Feder said the concert was the first “taste of life we’ve all lost” for more than a year.

He said, “This is a feeling we haven’t felt in a while.” “There’s a microphone, a crowd. It feels good.”

The Foo Fighters set off with AC / DC captain Brian Johnson while performing the rock anthem “Back In Black”.

“We’re not out of the woods yet. But let me tell you, I’m a firm believer in the idea that music should be shared with people,” said Dave Grohl, captain of VO Fighter’s. “Let’s work as hard as we can to make sure we can do this every night.”

Hugh Evans, founder and CEO of Global Citizen, said he wants to keep the momentum going.

“What we were trying to highlight is that it is clear that we must fight for justice,” he said. “It’s something that shouldn’t require any calculations. The bleeding is quite evident.”
