The TV personality and actress took to the stage to rile world leaders in to action as she addressed some of the most pressing issues that are affecting the world.
Pearl is an ambassador for Global Citizen, which is an organization that brings together politicians, entertainers and everyday people to address the tough issues that affect our society.
