On Wednesday (October 9), the “Bad Guy” singer was announced to perform a special acoustic show at the annual event, taking place on October 26 at Kimpton La Peer Hotel in West Hollywood. The shindig is organized for UNICEF Next Generation, a diverse group of philanthropic young professionals (ages 21 to 40) committed to improving the lives of children.
In speaking of Eilish’s involvement, UNICEF Next Generation managing director and founder Casey Rotter gave Billboard the following statement:
"UNICEF NextGen has celebrated the incredible influence that young people have all over this country for nearly a decade. For Billie Eilish, the definition of influence in our culture, to lend her voice to our landmark fundraising event is a dream come true. We are so grateful to combine Billie’s fierce and unforgettable style with UNICEF’s mission of doing whatever it takes for children everywhere. Billie is a perfect example of what NextGen stands for, how all of us, no matter what we do in our every day lives, can make a difference in the world and use our power and influence for good.”
The Masquerade Ball is 21 and over — tickets can be purchased here.
Eilish’s upcoming acoustic set at the philanthropic ceremony comes weeks after the “Lovely” singer-songwriter announced her “Where Do We Go? World Tour,” set to launch in March through July 2020.
In addition, Eilish will perform at the 2019 iHeartRadio Jingle Ball Tour presented by Capital One, kicking off on December 1 in Tampa, Florida, and will continue across the US throughout December including Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, New York, Boston, Washington DC, Chicago, Atlanta, and Miami.
