Gloria Estefan, Sting and other celebs will support India with star-studded event

Gloria Estefan, Sting, Andrea Bocelli, Josh Groban, Yo-Yo Ma, Asif Mandvi, Nishat Kahn, Ranjani Gayatri Sisters and Matteo Bocelli are just a few of those slated to appear for Vax.India.Now.

The event will also spotlight what’s happening on the ground in India and educate viewers on how they can help save lives and make an impact in the region, which has been hard hit by the pandemic.

A second wave of Covid-19 led to India breaking a global record with more than 400,00 cases in one day recently and more than 377,000 dead.

Vax.India.Now is the brainchild of Anuradha Palakurthi, who runs her own foundation out of New England that supports the promotion of Indian culture.

Palakurthi had friends and family in India who contracted the virus and some died. She knew that the only long-term solution was mass vaccinations, like in the US.

Driven by this purpose, she turned to The Giving Back Fund and together the idea for Vax.India.Now was born.

Vax.India.Now will be livestreamed across the globe by CNN and Dreamstage.live.
The event will be available for viewing on both vaxindianow.com and CNN’s YouTube channel at YouTube.com/CNN.

More participants will be announced at a later date.
