    It may surprise some to see a hip-hop icon like Jay Z — the rapper who helped personify the idea of ostentatious wealth — go hard to end world poverty, but that’s exactly what you can expect at the upcoming 2014 Global Citizen Festival.



    The rapper will headline the annual charity event organized by the Global Poverty Project, taking place this year on September 27th on the Great Lawn in New York's Central Park. Of course, Jigga has always claimed that his blinged-out persona was in service of inspiring the less fortunate, and S. Carter is committing to these ideals with his Global Citizen Festival appearance. "Change only takes place when and where there is action," the rapper said in a statement. "I'm joining the 2014 Global Citizen Festival because I believe through actions, whether it be by raising awareness, getting involved or educating ourselves, the goal to end extreme poverty by 2030 is possible."


    But Jay is just one of the megawatt music names slated to perform at this year's festival, which includes country superstar Carrie Underwood, alt-pop hitmakers fun., hip-hop's greatest band the Roots, dance music veteran Tiësto and No Doubt, who will be making their first live appearance as a band following an extended hiatus from performing. "Global Citizen will be the first show No Doubt has played together in two years,"


    Global Poverty Project’s effort to end extreme poverty by 2030 is a cause I strongly support," Tiësto tells Rolling Stone. "I am incredibly honored to be part of this year’s lineup for the the Global Citizen Festival in Central Park and to add my voice and the voices of my fans to those calling on the world’s leaders to throw their weight behind GPP’s efforts. It’s going to be an amazing show in one of the most unique venues in the world." "I love how this year's lineup brings together the king of hip-hop and the king of EDM," notes Global Poverty Project co-founder Hugh Evans. "Jay Z and his Shawn Carter Foundation have been with us on the whole journey, and No Doubt were so excited to do it from day one.

    We also felt like we needed to bring in some country for the first time: Carrie Underwood was the first country artist we reached out to, and she said yes. And personally, I'm such a huge fan of fun. and The Roots, too. The bill truly expresses that Global Citizen is a broad-based, non-partisan movement that crosses cultures and genders. We've always had an amazing diversity of artists each year, and 2014 continues that trend."

    As such, the upcoming festival builds on the template established in its previous incarnations of bringing together the most important musicians of the moment with an undeniable cause. The 2013 edition featured John Mayer, Stevie Wonder, Alicia Keys, Elvis Costello and Kings of Leon; likewise, the debut Global Citizen Festival in 2012 offered sets on the same stage from Neil Young and Crazy Horse, Foo Fighters, The Black Keys, Band of Horses, John Legend and K'naan.

    This year's festival, meanwhile, will add media partners NBC and MSNBC, who will promote the event on flagships like The Today Show and broadcast it to an enormous audience worldwide. "By now, I think we've proved we're not a fluke," Evans says. "We've grown every year. It doesn't get any easier, but the event does get bigger and bigger."

    I love that Carrie will be there representing country music. It's nice they asked her to be a part of it. It sounds like it is going to be a fun event.

    Great news. No surprise that they reached out to Carrie first in the country genre. No matter how much they push other artists in country music---Carrie IS the face of country music. I have been in many places all over the US and abroad and I can tell you that Carrie is the first name mentioned when you talk about the country genre. So sad that the industry she loves does not recognize her more instead of ignoring her and her HUGE popularity. I get the word RESPECT in reference to the mention of Carrie. Makes me proud for sure.

    They talked about this event this morning on the Today show. Apparently you can't buy tickets but somehow you need to earn them or something like that.

    What I find crazy is how everyone but the "country genre" immediately thinks of Carrie first.

    I agree and also think it would be just as great if some in country music would represent her as much as she does them.
