Billie Eilish, Coldplay & Many Others Sign Open Letter Urging World Leaders To End Extreme Poverty

Billie Eilish and Coldplay were among a number of musicians, artists, and entertainers around the world that have signed an open letter demanding world leaders take measures to end extreme poverty.

Focusing on the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on efforts to eliminate the causes and consequences of extreme poverty, the letter calls on wealthy nations “to close the financing gap” of $3.5 trillion in annual funding to achieve the United Nations’ Global Goals.

The open letter was announced at the inaugural Global Citizen NOW thought leadership summit in New York City on Sunday, and is in support of Global Citizen’s year-long End Extreme Poverty NOW – Our Future Can’t Wait campaign.

The musicians who signed the letter also include 5 Seconds of Summer, Adam Lambert, Chloe x Halle, Duran Duran, Femi Kuti, FINNEAS, Nile Rodgers, Ricky Martin, and Shawn Mendes.

Dozens of artists and entertainers also are signatories to the open letter.
