On September 27, SM Entertainment announced that they would be organizing the “2020 Global Goal Live: The Possible Dream“, a large-scale charity concert on five continents!
This project by Global Citizen is a long-term campaign that brings together the leaders, governments, charities, and private organizations of 193 UN member states around the world. Its goal is to solve world problems such as climate change, extreme poverty, and inequality by 2030.
SM’s founder Lee Sooman will produce this charity performance, held simultaneously in Asia, North and South America, Europe, and Africa. The host cities that have been announced so far are New York (USA) and Lagos (Nigeria).
The show will be broadcast live worldwide on September 26, 2020 and it is supposed to be a momentous 10-hour global media event!
The first lineup for the “2020 Global Goal Live: The Possible Dream” includes:
- Alicia Keys
- Billie Eilish
- Cyndi Lauper
- Janelle Monae
- Miley Cyrus
- Pharrell Williams
- Red Hot Chili Peppers
- Shawn Mendes
…and more! The second lineup will be announced on December 13.
It is still uknown whether more SM groups will be added in the future (like NCT 127, who are scheduled to perform at the 2019 Global Citizen Festival tomorrow and other U.S. events later this year) and whether EXO includes the whole group or just units/soloists, but we’ll make sure to keep you posted.
