Global Citizen Live, a 24-hour concert featuring performances from BTS, Jennifer Lopez, Stevie Wonder and Elton John among other dozens of stars, accumulated more than $1.1 billion in commitments and pledges to fight extreme poverty.
The event was broadcasted from in front of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, New York's central park and other major sites around the 6 continents of the globe, reports Billboard.
The stars also secured pledges from France for 60 million Covid-19 vaccine doses for developing countries along with corporate commitments for planting 157 million trees all over the planet.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markel also addressed the crowd of Global Citizen Live at Central Park earlier on Saturday afternoon.
"This year, the world is expected to produce enough doses to meet the target of vaccinating 70% of people in every single country," said Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex.
"But it is wrong that so much of the vaccine supply has only gone to just 10 wealthy nations so far, and not everyone else," she added.
Major philanthropic pledges came from the Lego Foundation, Rotary International, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and Children's Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF).
More than a dozen corporations, including Procter & Gamble, Starbucks, Delta Air Lines, American Express and Citi, joined the Race to Zero Campaign during the event. This campaign promotes and seeks to alleviate net carbon emissions around the earth to zero by 2050.
