INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) — President Joe Biden spoke about the COVID-19 vaccination being safe, Prince Harry urged for the vaccine distribution everywhere and Jennifer Lopez embraced her fully-vaccinated mother on stage during one of the largest concert gatherings in Southern California since the pandemic rocked the world more than a year ago.
Celebrities and political leaders gathered Sunday night to talk about the importance of vaccine equity at Global Citizen’s “Vax Live: The Concert to Reunite the World” at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California. The taped fundraising event will air May 8 on ABC, ABC News Live, CBS, YouTube and iHeartMedia broadcast radio stations.
The concert included performances by Lopez, Eddie Vedder, Foo Fighters, J Balvin and H.E.R.Ben Affleck, Chrissy Teigen, Jimmy Kimmel, Sean Penn and David Letterman appeared as special guest speakers.ADVERTISEMENTEveryone in the audience was fully vaccinated. Media and production staff needed to show a negative COVID test before entering the stadium. headtopics.com
“The vaccines are safe. I promise you. They work,” said Biden, who was accompanied in a video message with first lady Jill Biden. Both appeared as part of the “We Can Do This” initiative to increase confidence in COVID-19 vaccines.“We’re working with leaders around the world to share more vaccines and boost production to make sure every country has the vaccines they need,” the president continued. “If we get this done, we won’t have to miss another moment.”
The event was part of a growing chorus seeking wider, more equitable distribution of COVID-19 vaccines.Global Citizen said $53.8 million in philanthropic and corporate commitments helped procure nearly 10.3 million doses, exceeding the goal for the Vax Live campaign.
Prince Harry said providing vaccines across the globe is imperative, particularly those in the poorest countries. He said that he is standing solidarity with India, who is experiencing a “devastating” second wave of the virus.“The vaccine must be distributed to everyone everywhere,” the Duke of Sussex said. He along with his wife Meghan are leading an effort to raise money for the vaccine-sharing program COVAX, which hopes to produce $19 billion to pay for the vaccines for medical workers.
“We cannot rest or truly recover until there is fair distribution to 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 first responders and health care workers efforts during the pandemic. Selena Gomez, the show’s host, called essential and frontline workers “reliable” and “brave.” headtopics.com
“Many of us had to stay home, but you all didn’t have a choice,” the singer said. “You set an example for all of us, both in how you stayed on the job and that we need to get vaccinated as soon as possible.”ADVERTISEMENTEach musical performance made things seem almost like normal with attendees standing at their seats side-by-side while others danced with their masks on. Some hugged each other with enthusiasm.
H.E.R. performed on a small stage outside the stadium with a group of people playing their guitars.Before Lopez’s performance, she told the audience that she was unable to spend Christmas with her mother. The singer went on to invite her fully-vaccinated mom on stage, then the two sang their rendition of Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline.”
“When I was thinking about what song to sing tonight, I remembered the song she used to sing to me as a baby,” said Lopez, who later performed her 2016 hit single “Ain’t Your Mama.”Eddie Vedder said the concert was the first “taste of the life we’ve all been missing” for more than a year.
“This is a feeling we have not had in some time,” he said. “There’s a microphone, a crowd. It feels good.”Foo Fighters rocked on with AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson during a performance of the rock anthem “Back In Black.”“We ain’t out the woods yet. But let me tell you, I’m a firm believer and idea that music should be shared with people,” Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl said. “Let’s work as hard as we can to make sure we can do this every night.” headtopics.com
Hugh Evans, founder and CEO of Global Citizen, said he wants to keep the momentum going.“What were trying to highlight is the obvious that we should be fighting for equity,” he said. “It’s something that shouldn’t require any arithmetic. It is absolutely bleeding obvious.”Read more: The Associated Press »
Retired circus elephants get new home with plenty of room to roam
After years of entertaining fans under the big top -- and a few years in retirement -- in Central Florida, a herd of former circus elephants is settling into their new home at a wildlife refuge.
Whipped Ginger Harry Here in colombia AlvaroUribeVel and IvanDuque block the internet, sent the police and army to shoot civilians that are peacefully manifesting all over the country. WE NEED HELP. Please spread the word🙏🏿 SpreadTheWord HelpColombianPeople HELP I will tell you but hopefully you'll see this Harry and President Biden I believe now that the shots are going to be the what beats this covid-19 I took my first one I was scared to even get it I was thinking not to get it but I did wait to do my second one then I'll be fine
Dont mind bro Amazing how after a year of lockdowns and dying, they still need to “sell” getting these vaccines to the public. 👀 they can eat the entire world's ass Its embarrassing Poor guy obviously still in mourning after killing off his family My name is the Prince of Woke. One was by far the biggest name in the line up
And what’s this concert for? I don’t get it.
Prince Harry, Jennifer Lopez make voices heard at Vax LivePresident Joe Biden and Prince Harry were among several big names advocating for vaccine equity at “Vax Live: The Concert to Reunite the World.” Tôi là người vui vẻ hoà đồng dễ gần ...tim ng yeu lau dài ...fem ..!! Nuremberg2 VaxLive Vaccines Forced or coerced vaccination is a violation of: -Nuremberg Code -UNESCO Universal Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights -UN International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights -UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights - Declaration of Helinski 😂🤣😂
Harry probably wouldn't get a 'Vax Live'-like standing ovation in the UK anymore via mercnews Looks like he’s doing about as much as the Royal Family does... ProstituteArchetype.... OR Harry Has not done His Homework‼️ Not a royal fan, but I love this guy. If there was anything as the president of the world, he'd get my vote!!
What does this really add? It ais all happening without his tuppence worth. And i wonder how many celebs there have used nepostism to get their vaccination? I'm sure the sentiment is tehre, but the cynic in me wonders how many celebs do this fir their profile..... Given his life choices maybe Mr Markle is not the best advocate.
The state of it: “Vax Live: The Concert to Reunite the World.” An opportunity for the world’s narcissists to parade their repulsive, nauseating, virtue-signalling on a global stage. VomitFest GlobalSwitchOff 🤮🤮🤮 Left one cult for another...will this 'Prince' deny Snow White a kiss and force her to live a life of eternal slumber? Stay tuned for more who gives a rats ass news.
DiJohnson15 Make the vaccine recipes available for everyone. That’s equity. Not profit. Go4Zero
Prince Harry, Jennifer Lopez, Dave Grohl push for vaccine equity at SoFi Stadium concertCelebrities were out in force to urge vaccine equity at 'Vax Live: The Concert to Reunite the World' at SoFi Stadium on Sunday. 'The resources we don't own should be distributed more equally!' He’s not a Prince anymore ! He is an Amzon driver now... Cuz sheee didn’t like being a Duchess... Total bullshit again...
thk you president trump With all its wealth perhaps the US could simply donate more of its ventilators and vaccines to suffering countries, instead of singing about it. Meaning the US should release restrictions on the patents for our vaccines and help ensure the entire global population gets them asap.
Let's not kid ourselves, no matter WHO was on this show/concert; Prince Harry WAS the draw, so happy he appeared as a global citizen. AND I hope whoever has not gotten vaccinated yet, do so. Two & done ... well until the booster at whatever point! vaccinateAmerica I thought he was just Harry now... Two people, both very famous. Both closely associated with organisations rumoured to be infested with paedophilia.
Got a warm welcome may I add just to make the racists jealous 🤣 Harry!!! Global Citizen. Gallant Soldier. Humanitarian. Husband. Father. love him !!! Yesss we are Global! Well done PrinceHarry and everyone involved
Jennifer Lopez Showed Off Her Abs From Every Angle At 'Vax Live' Concert RehearsalsNot to mention, her outfits from the ✨official✨ performance look 🔥🔥🔥.
Well done Harry. I think Harry should go by ‘Harry Mountbatten-Windsor’ since he’s no longer a prince. harry got it! william Since when does America have royalty? I’m not down to give the ex prince and MeAgain any platform. They should get to work and have the private life they said they wanted. I think I’ve written more content than Harry has in the past month without the millions of dollars.
TJMonticello UN_Liberia Ruptly IntlCrimCourt Americans cry abovt racial injvstice bvt eat vp vvhat British Royals responsible for institvtional racism in America are selling Americaiskapvt He stands on his own and doesn’t need the title.

Jennifer Lopez shares a sweet duet with her mom on stage at ‘Vax Live’ concertThis isn't the first time J.Lo's mom has joined her on stage. I hope she treats her Mom better than the people who work for her.
Preaching to the choir! 😆 You should asked how much they've received from pandemic creators& those foundations behind vaccination The More you are famous the more you can influenced the more you can brainwashed the innocents the more money you get from vaccine Foundation $20mil vaccineSideEffects
bannerite Who knew ~ Prince Harry could sing?! 😉 The combination of Prince Harry and Jennifer Lopez somehow doesn't sound right ? He is no longer a Prince, He's a joke. The big losers from the Royals’ alienation of Harry and Meghan are the UK and the Royals, who missed their chance to invigorate the monarchy for modern times. They should have squeezed Charles and William to step aside, and let ERII pass the throne to Harry now.
Prince Harry 🤔..shouldn’t it just be Harry now that he’s left the monarchy. Hey Harry Don't Let Them Get U Down. people say Alot, Throw Mud, and then Discover they Need the Shack. How much was Harry paid? When Vaccines is talked about everywhere&they're distributing around the 🌍its sad how the majority of the advanced nation not felt suspicious, brainwashed, manipulated by media Those big names never took real1 & wont advised their children to have1 RFIAfrique _AfricanUnion
Jennifer Lopez Brings Her Mom on Stage to Sing During VAX LIVE ConcertThe singer took the stage just ahead of her friend and former flame Ben Afflek's appearance at the star-studded benefit event. 👀👀👀👀 He's banging her. Oh how fast she moves on. But once an ex always an ex, should stay that way Who’s more thirsty?!
🖕both of those liberal communist Very cool. Harry is glowing and the Brexiters are having a meltdown because they are now stuck with Prince William and Prince Andrew. Keep being you Harry Mad_Houri Loving everything about this!! Was nice waking up to see this plastered all over the news on a rainy bank holiday weekend. Hope and Love is in the air!
Soon in your city! Enjoy! AP writing new headlines in sleep without any critical analysis is the absurdity of a press that’s bought and sold by the west 👀🤡 Damn I knew nothing about this.
It amazes me that some folks are willing to listen to celebrities, but not scientists! Really?! LMFAO! 🤔 What does that mean? Everyone has access to vaccines. Obviously, he's using his opportunities to advocate for the health and welfare of everyone. Not quite sure what the goal of all his online critics and bullies is...🤔
Joe Biden and who ? Prince Harry ? in USA doesn't live or exist P. Harry, and his wife control him, the UK tax $$$ and her babies $$$$, she hit the Mega billions in USA, she didn't even pay for the Wedding. She should. Just shows how gullible people are that they can be persuaded to be injected by a experimental vaccine just because someone else endorsed it.
Hope everyone there had their vaccination. 🤷🏻♀️ Mackingday I really don’t understand the madness caused by jealousy is transmitted among Brits. Is it a virus or is it in the water? Who? I love American Civilian Prince Harry.
I guess being a celebrity is better than being a prince Oh spare us ... Shocked to see how many people were in the audience. Vaccinated or not. What a strange news piece, look at how many vcn news you post recently? This is typical of an imperialist approach to PR. If King Leopold were alive today he’d be running an event called Supporting and Uplifting Families on the Banks of the River Congo.
This is a joke, the main vaccine hoarders asking for equity in the distribution of vaccines. Cynical. The bad thing is that there are still fools who believe them. Harry just living his 'normal, quiet life' publicist is doing a fine job With respect, but, Prince Harry?
Yawn. Prince Harry needs Democratic remittances! The Democratic Party needs Prince Harry to be politically correct. To vomit. if only this joe biden guy was in a position to do something about that
