Watch Coldplay Perform ‘Paradise’ for Global Citizen’s ‘Global Goal’ Concert

    Yesterday (June 27), a number of musicians and actors including Miley Cyrus, Shakira, Christine and the Queens, Billy Porter, Charlize Theron, Chris Rock, and more performed at Global Citizen’s ‘Global Goal: Unite for Our Future’ concert, which aims “to combat the disproportionate impact COVID-19 has on marginalized communities by committing funds to develop and deliver tests, treatments, and therapeutics.” Coldplay were one of the bands who joined from Los Angeles, and you can watch their perfomance of hit single ‘Paradise’ below.

    Filmed and produced by Impossible Brief, the colourful video kicks off with an inspirational quote by Nelson Mandela that reads: “May your choices reflect your hopes, not your fears.” The animated video also features clips of a young black girl drawing a butterfly which then flies away. The video ends with the words “in memory of Elijah McClain”, in reference to the 23-year-old black man who died after he was restrained with a chokehold and injected with ketamineby Colorado police officers in 2019.
