United Nations virtual concert unites Pacific in the fight against COVID-19

The United Nations in the Pacific’s ‘Pacific Unite: Saving Lives Together’ is a first-of-its-kind televised and digitally streamed concert that calls on leaders and citizens across the region to work together and with the rest of the world in the fight against COVID-19.

The concert pays tribute to essential workers across the Pacific for the work they’ve done so far to prevent transmission and save lives and a call, through music and art, for continued solidarity in the fight against COVID-19. It is also a reminder that as we rise up as a family of nations, we must seize the opportunity to build a more inclusive and resilient Pacific and a more sustainable and equitable world.

Hosted by Aunty Tala from the Laughing Samoans, the virtual concert features performances from Jah Boy (Solomon Islands); Jay Hoad (Australia); Juny B (Kiribati); Justin Wellington (PNG), Kendal T (Palau), Mia Kami (Tonga), Nem & Talei (Fiji), Paulini (Australia), Poly Flavour (Samoa); Skillz (Fiji); Stan Antas (Vanuatu), Te Vaka (New Zealand); Tiki Taane (New Zealand), Tropikana Breeze (Tuvalu), Vanessa Quai (Vanuatu), Yosh (Vanuatu), UN Messenger of Peace Yo-Yo Ma (USA), and more.

The feature includes messages from global leaders Prime Minster Jacinda Ardern from New Zealand, His Royal Highness Prince Charles and Fijian Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama.
