Global Citizen Live! is an evening of advocacy, music, and impact bringing together world leaders, activists, influencers and some of the biggest artists in the world to amplify cutting-edge solutions to the world's greatest challenges. On Monday, September 18th, Global Citizen Live! will support Global Citizen’s campaigns and catalyze our global community of advocates, activists, private sector and NGO partners. The night also will feature the presentation of the 2nd Annual George Harrison Global Citizen Award, a humanitarian honor presented to an artist who has demonstrated excellence and sustained commitment in music and activism, blending art with advocacy for social good impact.
In 2016, Global Citizen, together with Paul Simon, Dhani Harrison, and Olivia Harrison, presented the inaugural award to Dhani and Olivia Harrison to honor George Harrison in recognition of his groundbreaking work at The Concert for Bangladesh in 1971 - The first ever benefit concert to address a grave and exigent humanitarian crisis. Alongside the presentation of the Harrison Award.
