all right. that was jay-z and beyonce rounding out a third concert here in central park. if you can hear them, my voice is a little hoarse. >> that's maybe because -- >> it's due to an hour of shouting at the top of my lungs. >> shouting all the jay-z lyrics you've always known. we've also been live here on msnbc for the last seven hours, with over 60,000 global citizens celebrating the movement to end -- >> you can see everyone behind. >> this is it! >> fill it up, everybody. >> throw your diamonds in the sky. that was epic. that was epic. that was why we were -- i mean, there were many acts, but really, with queen bee and
jay-z, not a bad look for tonight, saturday night. a lot has been accomplished tonight. much further to go. a big, big night for all of us, especially all of us here at the channel. not usually that we close out a saturday night with the king and queen of rap. >> pretty incredible. it was unbelievable. >> of r&b. >> of american music. >> of music. >> of universal and intergalactic music. >> the other thing i did note here, ending extreme poverty by 2030 sounds like a pipe dream and it is very much not. it is the stated goal of the world bank. it's a completely achievable goal. there is a lot of wealth in this world. a tremendous amount of wealth in this world, a tremendous amount of poverty, and we have it within us, we have it within us to end extreme poverty by 2030. there is transfers that need to happen, developmental issues that need to be worked out, but it is a doable, achievable goal, and a lot of the stuff you saw tonight just reminded you of how achievable that is. of course, you can get a concert like this pulled off in central park, it seems like we should be
able to get the train situation -- >> awareness is a huge part of it. and the beautiful thing about this, it wasn't just about buying a ticket and seeing your favorite rappers, favorite americans, your favorite earthlings, favorite rapper, sting, no doubt, you know, a cast of the finest in music. it was about, you know, it was about the issues. i will say, these kind of concerts usually you do not hear about open defecation as much as we have tonight. are. >> sometimes you do hear about it at concerts, but it's in different context and it's upsetting. >> but the issues were very much woven through this from start to finish for seven hours. it has been awesome. >> and you have all these commitments that are being made. i was struck when the norwegian foreign minister of the danish minister of trade and development was out here making commitment oss on global educat. those countries lead the way in foreign aid as a percentage of gdp. they're near the top ten or top
five. the u.s. is not in the top ten or top five. so this should be a real kind of wake-up call to us as americans. and you saw republican congressmen up here, democratic congressmen. we're a rich country and we can afford to do a lot more than we're doing. >> and we can afford to be more engaged than we already on the issues. this has been a spectacular evening with you, my friends. >> i've enjoyed this. this is the longest time we've been together since college. >> and i don't want to see you for another couple of months. that does it for us on msnbc. >> i'm alex wagner. >> i'm chris hayes. thank you for tuning in. this is our live coverage of the third annual global citizen concert in central park. good night. ♪
your voices will be heard! ♪ your voices will be heard!♪ you fifteen percent or more on huh, fiftcar insurance.uld save yeah, everybody knows that. well, did you know that playing cards with kenny rogers gets old pretty fast? ♪ you got to know when to hold'em. ♪ ♪ know when to fold 'em. ♪ know when to walk away. ♪ know when to run. ♪ you never count your money, ♪ when you're sitting at the ta...♪ what? you get it? i get the gist, yeah. geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance. it's not every day that you find yourself at the corner of "a little flu shot" and "a world of difference." when you get any immunization at walgreens, you'll help provide a lifesaving vaccine to a child in a developing country through the un foundation's shot@life campaign.
>> america's prisons, dangerous, often deadly. there are 2 million people doing time. every day is a battle to survive. and to maintain order. >> down! on your feet! down! >> among the nation's most notorious institutions, san quentin state prison. our cameras spent months documenting life on the inside where gangs, drugs and sheer boredom make up a violent mix. this is "lockup: san quentin, extended stay."
