Spending some quality time in the Big Apple for a great cause, Selena Gomez was front-and-center for The Global Citizen Festival in New York City on Saturday (September 29).

The “Love You Like A Love Song” singer looked absolutely stunning, joining fellow celebs Olivia Wilde, Katharine McPhee, John Legend, Peter Nemcova and Michelle Trachtenberg (among others) as a host for the event.

Encouraging her 12 million-plus followers to join her for this inspirational evening, Selena wrote, “Speaking for @UNICEFUSA & kids living in poverty at @GlobalFestival Sept 29 in NYC. Hope to see you there.”

Being dubbed as the largest syndicated charity webcast and broadcast, the festival will be held smack dab in Central Park, and offers performances by Neil Young and Crazy Horse, Foo Fighters, the Black Keys, Band of Horses, and K'Naan.

According to the foundation’s website, “The Global Citizen Festival aims to mobilize more than 50,000 people to take action in support of ending extreme poverty."
