Vax Live concert to be hosted by Selena Gomez, with Jennifer Lopez and Foo Fighters among performers

Singer Selena Gomez is set to host “Vax Live: The Concert to Reunite the World” on May 8.

Some of music’s top stars will come together in harmony for a special concert in support of COVID-19 vaccines.

Selena Gomez is set to host “Vax Live: The Concert to Reunite the World,” with the Foo Fighters, Jennifer Lopez, H.E.R., J Balvin and Eddie Vedder slated to perform, organizers announced.

The event, which will air May 8 across numerous networks and platforms, is being put together by the advocacy group Global Citizen.

Organizers hope the concert will “inspire vaccine confidence worldwide and help get the COVID-19 vaccines to everyone, everywhere,” a press release says.

They are also urging philanthropists and corporations to make donations in order for front-line health care workers to be vaccinated.

Gomez, 28, said she’s “honored” to host the special event.

“This is a historic moment to encourage people around the world to take the COVID-19 vaccine when it becomes available to them, call on world leaders to share vaccine doses equitably and to bring people together for a night of music in a way that hasn’t felt possible in the past year,” Gomez said in a statement. “I can’t wait to be a part of it.”

Networks that will broadcast the concert — which is being taped at SoFi Stadium, home of the NFL’s Los Angeles Rams and Chargers — include CBS, ABC and FOX.

The event will also stream on ABC News Live, iHeartRadio and YouTube.
