Watch Janet Jackson, Cardi B And More Performances At The Global Citizen Fest 2018

Global Citizen festival will took place on NYC’s Great Lawn in Central Park on Saturday, Sept. 29. The Weeknd and Janet Jackson will be headlining, along with Shawn Mendes, Cardi B, and Janelle Monáe. A special guest performance will be given by John Legend.

Janet Jackson and Cardi B delivered impassioned social messages during their performances at the Global Citizen Festival Saturday (Sept. 29) at New York’s Central Park.

Jackson paused during her set on Central Park’s Great Lawn to tell the thousands of socially conscious music fans in attendance about “the double standards that continue to threat women.”

“Enough injustice, enough bigotry, mistreatment and mindless prejudice has to stop and stop now. Equality is our demand. Action is our answer,” the legendary singer told the crowd. 

Cardi B used her platform to inform fans about the importance of voting. The rapper gave a charismatic speech about the recent presidential election before introducing a pre-recorded video message from Michelle Obama.

“Last election, everybody took it as a joke, even me, I’m not even gonna front, because I thought, ‘Man, that person ain’t gonna win’ — and look where we at now,” Cardi said. “We need someone that’s gonna represent us, that’s gonna protect us, not put us with beef with everybody else.”

The goal of concert was to encourage leaders to reach the U.N.’s sustainable development goals and to end extreme poverty by 2030.
