The 31-year-old will be headlining the third annual Live. Life. Love: A Concert for Suicide Prevention, presented by Journeys. The lineup also includes Jon Bellion, Louis Tomlinson, LovelyTheBand and Chelsea Cutler.
A portion of the proceeds will reportedly go to To Write Love on Her Arms, a nonprofit organization based in Melbourne, Florida.
“In the past two years, our Live. Life. Love. concert has raised over $30,000 for To Write Love on Her Arms to support the incredible work they do in saving lives across America,” said Jonathan Shuford, program director for 107.5 The River, according to Fox17.
“With a bigger venue in 2019 and a list of incredible artists and human beings that have agreed to come and advocate for mental health, love and acceptance, I have no doubt that this year’s edition will be the best yet. A huge thank you to the artists, managers and labels who believe in what we’re trying to accomplish,” Shuford added.
Lizzo seems to be by far the most popular artist to perform at the show. Previous performers include, Why Don't We, Dan + Shay, Lauv, Jake Miller, Kim Petras and Caroline Kole, 107.5 The River reported.
In 2017, Fitz & The Tantrums, Bea Miller, For King & Country, Tyron and Whitney Woerz took the stage, according to Nashville Guru.
Lizzo’s single, “Truth Hurts,” is currently No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. The single has been at No. 1 for six consecutive weeks, according to Billboard.
Lizzo was recently in Nashville for a tour performance, with her set lasting 90 minutes, the Tennessean reported.
Other pop and R&B artists, like Solange, Beyoncé and SZA have done charity concerts for a variety of causes, Blavity reports. Lizzo is said to be involved in another charity concert called the Global Citizen Festival in September 2020, NME reported.
