Miley Cyrus brought a solo performance of the classic Beatles tune “Help!” to an empty Spieker Field in the Rose Bowl for the “Global Goal: Unite for Our Future” concert.
The song title was displayed in large letters throughout the Pasadena, California field. Cyrus’s stage was the dot at the bottom of the exclamation point.
The “Global Goal” was broadcast on Saturday (June 27) to shed light on communities disproportionately affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
In addition to covering the 1965 Beatles single for the event, Cyrus also took time to discuss, as he wrote on social media, “how his generation speaks to demand action and change.”
“My generation is hungry for change and leads that burden in many ways,” said the singer. “I have just been a student, in the last few months and especially during the few weeks in my home country. I have been a student of these organizers and I have been able to learn and educate myself. That is my full time right now, even through from Global Citizen, just educating myself. I think that’s the first step in making the change. “
She added: “Young people are using their voices every day to demand that change, and especially now in this activism, although the change is taking time, we want it to lead to lasting change. Something that has been on my mind was wanting to return to normality, but this ‘new’ normality we don’t want to go back to being like before. We want to go to a more improved and inspired way of life. “
