Stevie Wonder and Elvis Costello are among the artists scheduled to perform in New York City's Central Park today as part of the second annual Global Citizen Festival.  If you can't make it to the Big Apple, though, the performance will be streaming online.

The benefit event, which was created to raise money for and awareness about global poverty , can be viewed live via the organization's official website, GlobalFestival.com .  Other performers scheduled to hit the festival's stage include Alicia Keys , John Mayer and alt-rockers Kings of Leon . Things get under way at 4 p.m. ET.

In addition, U2 's Bono is expected to appear, but not as a performer.  Instead, he'll present Liberian president Ellen Johnson Sirleaf with a Global Citizen Movement Award in recognition of her dedication to women's equality issues.

Global Poverty Project founder Hugh Evans , who organized the festival, previously told ABC News Radio, "We've got...incredible headliners that are going to be bringing not just incredible music, but their passion to see an end to extreme poverty."
