The concert was put on as part of United Way’s Shining a Light initiative, which seeks to bring attention to racial inequality in America and provide tools to help communities address the issue.

Held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, the concert featured a diverse lineup of artists, including Pharrell Williams, Bruce Springsteen, Ed Sheeran, and Aloe Blacc. In addition to providing an evening of entertainment, the artists helped raise funds for organizations and individuals who are working to promote racial justice.
