Taylor Swift and Khalid, who are both honoured on the 2019 Time 100 list, will perform at the celebratory gala on April 23, according to the publication.
“Taylor makes the job of creating music for millions of people look easy,” Shawn Mendes writes of Swift for the Time 100 list. “It all comes from her — her belief in magic and love, and her ability to be as honest and raw as possible. She’s the master of putting the perfect amount of thought into not overthinking, and that’s why her music connects so well.”
Khaid, who recently performed at Coachella, was tribute by Alicia Keys for the list.
“He’s a beautiful writer with the ability to take human concepts and make you understand and feel them,” Keys writes. “He has a full, powerful voice that is somehow unassuming and smooth at the same time. He’s accessible — almost like you’ve met somebody like him before, although there’s nobody else like him.”
Jennifer Lopez and Shawn Mendes performed at last year’s gala.
