Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber are among the stars who’ll perform on a new special airing this Saturday, June 27.

Global Goal: Unite for Our Future — The Concert, a Global Citizen event, will highlight the fact that COVID-19 disproportionately affects marginalized communities, such as people living in poverty, people of color and others facing discrimination.

In addition to Miley and Justin, there will be performances from Coldplay, Usher, Shakira, J Balvin, Jennifer Hudson, Chloe X Halle, and Christine and the Queens.  For Justin’s performance, he’ll be joined by Quavo, which would seem to indicate that they’ll be performing their collaboration “Intentions.”

Dwayne Johnson will host the special, which will also feature appearances from Kerry Washington, Hugh Jackman, Ken Jeong, Olivia Colman, Forest Whitaker, Billy Porter, Charlize Theron, David Beckham, Chris Rock, Queer Eye‘s Antoni Porowski, and Game of Thrones star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, among others.

In a statement, Global Citizen co-founder Hugh Evans explained that the star-studded event will honor doctors, scientists, essential workers, activists and lab workers, who are “racing to not only create the cure for COVID-19, but also to ensure that it’s available for everyone who needs it.”

Global Goal: Unite for Our Future — The Concert will air worldwide on Saturday.  In addition to NBC and YouTube, you’ll be able to watch it on Twitter, Yahoo!, Twitch, MSNBC, TIDAL and iHeartMedia.  Check local listings and for more information.
