An Earth Day event at the National Mall in Washington, D.C., Saturday featured a host of big-name talents that had South Korean K-pop artists VIXX and Roy Kim perform on the same stage as Usher, No Doubt, Fall Out Boy and Mary J. Blige.

Kim and the six-member boy band were special guests at Global Citizen 2015 Earth Day, which reportedly attracted a crowd of 250,000.

The concert was live-streamed via YouTube and featured a string of speakers, among them United Nations Chief Ban Ki-moon and World Bank President Jim Yong Kim.

The event was held by the Earth Day Network and the Global Poverty Project.

Earth Day started in 1970. According to TIME, it began “as a casual suggestion by Wisconsin Senator Gaylord Nelson … meant as neither protest nor celebration, but rather as a ‘day for serious discussion of environmental problems.’”
