ICYMI, a conclave of socially conscious celebrities and politicians descended on N.Y.C.'s Central Park on Saturday for the fourth annual Global Citizen Festival, part of the UN-backed Global Poverty Project which aims to end extreme poverty by 2030.

Olivia Wilde, Michelle Obama, and Freida Pinto were among the big-name players who spoke out to raise awareness, while Coldplay, Ed Sheeran, Beyoncé, and Pearl Jam provided the bulk of the evening's musical entertainment—interlaced with do-good initiatives (Queen B's performance featured a slew of multimedia bits, with inspiring quotes from poet Maya Angelou and Nigerian novelist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie flashing across the screen).
