Global Citizen Festival Live Stream: Watch Beyonce and More Perform.

Vice President Joe Biden has joined celebrities such as Beyonce, Ed Sheeran and Leonardo Di Caprio in New York tonight for a festival aimed at raising awareness of global inequality.Though the concert was free, in order to obtain a ticket folks had to spread the word about world hunger either by going on social media or writing to a member of congress. “We had to sign petitions and email senators; send things out on Twitter and get the word out that we were trying to end poverty,” she told WCBS 880’s Kelly Waldron. “Rewarding people for doing positive things will definitely make a better generation.” “Just because it’s not something that you deal with, as a society we should care that other people are suffering in the United States and around the world.

Biden, who is still thought to be mulling a late-stage run for the Democratic presidential nomination, used his appearance to call for all people to be treated with dignity and respect. A number of celebrities are also expected at tonight’s event, including Leonardo DiCaprio, Stephen Colbert, Kerry Washington, Katie Holmes, Hugh Jackman and Selma Hayak. That is one of the main reasons I am here tonight because right now 62million girls are not in school and what is important to me is that these are our girls. ‘They deserve the same chance to get an education as our daughters and my daughters and all of our children. Giving them that chance is a crucial target in ending global poverty.’ She then called on people to join her campaign by tweeting a picture of themselves along with the hashtag 62million, explaining what they learned from their experience in school.

More children are going to school, more communities have clean water, and hundreds of millions of people have been lifted out of poverty. ‘When so many families still live in extreme poverty and chronic hunger, when so many mothers still die in childbirth, when so many children still die from preventable diseases – that is a moral outrage. Also delivering speeches were Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, Queen Rania of Jordan, Delaware Senator Chris Coons and Jim Yong Kim, head of the World Bank. They were joined by the likes of Coldplay, who debuted their new single Amazing Day, and rapper Commons, who brought Sting on stage during his performance. DiCaprio’s stance on the issue has been criticized as hypocritical in the past, as he often spends his summers sailing across the globe on a yacht rented from an oil billionaire.
