Selena Gomez is ready to step back into the spotlight for a good cause.
The 26-year-old singer will be joining a slew of stars, including Natalie Portman, Meghan Trainor, Hailee Steinfeld, Mahershala Ali, Chance the Rapper, Joe Jonas, will.i.am, Bill Nye and more, for WE Day on April 25. The event, deemed the "the greatest celebration of social good," will be hosted by Neil Patrick Harris and take place at The Forum in Los Angeles.
WE Day is to be filled with "unforgettable performances and motivational speeches" and is a day Gomez looks forward to.
“Every year, WE Day leaves me feeling inspired and hopeful," she said in a statement. "The youth have an incredible positive and passionate attitude for making real change in the world. I'm so proud to celebrate young people's year of social change and to remind them that together, we are an unstoppable movement dedicated to a brighter and better tomorrow."
WE Day is connected to the free service WE Schools, which is designed to enhance a school or community’s existing social initiatives or spark new ones. This is a cause that is very close to Gomez's heart.
"As maybe some of you know, I had a kidney transplant this year and so many people from across the country reached out and they offered their support," she shared at the time. "And others told me how hearing my story helped them find their own courage and helped other people want to get involved and donate. They reminded me how lucky I am to have a platform where I can share with you guys and I can pay the love forward."
Gomez also reunited with her pal Jennifer Aniston at WE Day last April. Check it out:
