Thousands attend NYC concert highlighting poverty

By LOU FERRARA | Associated Press – 13 hrs ago

NEW YORK (AP) — Neil Young, the Black Keys, Foo Fighters and others wowed thousands who turned out Saturday night for a free concert in Central Park to call attention to poverty worldwide.

Dubbed the Global Citizen Festival, the concert also featured K'naan, John Legend and Band of Horses, with Young's performance capping off the evening. Video of the event was streamed worldwide as about 60,000 music fans crowded the park's Great Lawn, the midtown Manhattan skyline twinkling behind them.

Legend made a surprise appearance, playing one song "Imagine" at a piano on stage, a short walk from where the song's author, John Lennon, once lived. The five-hour show was a mix of tight sets from the bands, roughly an hour each, mixed with videos and information from guest speakers about global poverty-related problems like infant mortality and polio.

Just like that, all the problems of poverty were solved, at least that's what Libtards would like you to believe. 🙄 A Libtard organization got more pledge money to mismanage, eat up in bureaucratic waste and distribute the scraps to a few scattered regions across the globe. All while standing on their soapbox and feeling morally superior.

The modern definition of ‘racist’ is someone who’s winning an argument with a liberal.
