Our 10 favorite moments from The Global Citizen Festival

Written by

On Saturday over sixty thousand supporters rocked out for a good cause at Central Park's Great Lawn for this year's Global Citizen Festival. With musical guests like The Roots, fun. and Alicia Keys, we're not surprised this concert for poverty awareness was a huge success. Celebs like Dianna Agron took the stage, and numerous world leaders including Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and even President Barack Obama via satellite, spoke about our collective move towards ending world hunger. Talk about the power of music. The night was damn near perfect, from Gwen reuniting with No Doubt for an amazing 45 minute set, to the queen of queens Beyoncé's surprise appearance with her "bae" Jay Z for the epic finale. It was so great, in fact, we decided to round up some of our favorite moments.
