Global pop-star BTS on Monday joined world leaders at the United Nations General Assembly in New York and took over the platform by performing on their hit song ‘Permission to Dance’.
Apart from their exceptional performance, the group which was recently named the UN’s Special Presidential Envoys for Future Generations and Culture also addressed the assembly and then showed a video they filmed, in respectful suits, at the iconic building’s auditorium, lobby and front.
“It is an honour to be here today. We are BTS, appointed as special presidential envoys of the Republic of Korea. We are here today to share the stories of our future generations. Before we came here we asked young people in their teens and twenties around the world about the past two years and the world they find themselves in today,” the group’s RM said through a translator.
Convened by Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, the Moment is intended to provide world leaders with a platform to showcase the plans, actions and solutions that are needed to end the COVID-19 pandemic and set the world on course towards achieving the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals).
