Alex Wagner and Chris Hayes anchored MSNBC’s coverage from Central Park, with Ronan Farrow doing live interviews backstage and around the festival. Over 60,000 people gathered on the Great Lawn, all earning their tickets by accruing points for engaging in various activities aimed at defeating global poverty. The concert brought together music headliners including, Jay Z, Beyoncé, No Doubt, Sting, fun., Carrie Underwood, Alicia Keyes, and The Roots with celebrity hosts and presenters including Hugh Jackman, Olivia Wilde, Jessica Alba, and Ryan Reynolds. Influential world leaders were also present, pledging their support to end extreme poverty. Prime Minister Narenda Modi of India announced his pledge to provide toilets to all the citizens of India by 2019 and Prime Minister Erna Solberg of Norway pledged $1.2 billion to provide vaccinations to poor countries over the next six years. Other messages came from Samantha Power, the American Ambassador to the UN, Jim Yong Kim, The President of the World Bank and, by video, President Barack Obama who said, “You are now part of the global fight to end extreme poverty, and this is a fight we can win”.  Altogether, the Global Citizen Festival affected the lives of 259 million people living in extreme poverty.
