Miley Cyrus performed a cover of the Beatles' Help! in an empty Rose Bowl Stadium in California as part of Global Citizen's 'Global Goal: Unite For Our Future' Livestream event over the weekend.
“For me, the magic of performing is sharing and celebrating music together…being surrounded by people and feeling their energy!", the singer wrote. "During this time of COVID-19, we are coming together in a different way…we are uniting with the goal of ensuring EVERYONE has access to the solutions to end this pandemic."
During the Livestream event, Cyrus also had a conversation with some politicians. “Honoured to join PM Solberg @erna_solberg and @glblctzn to talk about the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on marginalised communities and how our generation is speaking up to demand action and change!”
Watch the powerful performance below:
She said, “My generation is hungry for change and is leading that charge in many ways. I’ve just been a student, over the last few months and especially over the few weeks in my home country. I’ve been a student of these organisers and being able to learn and educate myself. That’s kind of what my time is filled with at this moment, even through Global Citizen, just educating myself. I think that’s the first step to making change."
“Young people are using their voices every day to demand that change, and especially now in this activism, even though change is taking time, we want it to lead to lasting change. And something that has been in my mind was wanting to go back to normal, but this ‘new’ normal of ‘We don’t want to go back to the way things were before. We want to go to a more improved, inspired way of life.’”
