Global Citizen Live 2021: Jennifer Lopez brings the world to her block - New York Post

A month later, on a sun-drenched Saturday, there was no such drama for Global Citizen Live NYC‚ which was just one of a 24-hour festival across six continents — from London and Paris to Rio De Janeiro and Lagos, Nigeria — raising voices for the hunger crisis, climate needs of developing countries and COVID-19 vaccination distribution.

After a shout out from Mayor Bill de Blasio — who, just as at the Homecoming Concert, was once again greeted by a chorus of boos — Lopez cranked out a medley that included her hits “If You Had My Love” and “Love Don’t Cost a Thing.” Then she delivered an age-defying re-creation of the “Flashdance”-style choreography from her “I’m Glad” video.

It was just one highlight of a seven-hour concert that, although somewhat slowed by the speakers appearing between each performance setup, reminded us about the power of live music to transport and transcend even in — make that, especially in — the toughest of times.

Another New York native, Cyndi Lauper, provided an early highlight by, appropriately for the occasion, adding some world-beat feels to her 1984 classic “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.” She then brought out Jon Batiste for “True Colors,” which she described as a “healing song” before delivering the spare ballad with a voice that has lost none of its quirky power.

And Prince Harry and Meghan Markle received a rock-star welcome when they took the stage to speak about COVID-19 vaccination distribution across the globe
