Priyanka Chopra will join Hollywood stars Hugh Jackman, wife Deborra-Lee and Salma Hayek as the host of an anti-poverty concert which is being headlined by Metallica, Rihanna and Selena Gomez in New York.

TV host Chelsea Handler, Neil Patrick Harris and Seth Meyers are among the other hosts for the fifth annual Global Citizen Festival that will take place on September 24 in New York’s Central Park.

The evening, which has been billed as a free-ticket event to help raise awareness for the Global Goals set by the United Nations since its inception, will also see performances by artistes like Kendrick Lamar and Major Lazer.

The glittering event will have guest performers in Chris Martin and Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder. Usher, Ellie Goulding, Yandel, and Yusuf/Cat Stevens round out this year’s performers.

The 34-year-old actress, now, a known face internationally, met the “U Remind Me” hit-maker for an upcoming event Global Citizen Festival, which the duo is hosting.

Priyanka took to Twitter to share a photo of herself posing with Usher.

“So fun “ushering” in the day with you! Lol! Super proud to be hosting #GlobalCitizen with @Usher and so many others!” the “Quantico” star captioned the picture.

The pair will be seen on American talk show, “Today,” where they will talk about the festival.
