There was plenty of star power and rock royalty abound at the Global Citizen Festival, but the true belle of the ball was Suri Cruise, who got the exciting chance to come up onstage with her mom!
Katie Holmes, 36, spoke as one of the hosts at the Global Citizen Festival, and her appearance was made that much more special by sharing the stage with her adorable daughter, Suri Cruise, 9. Suri got up before thousands of adoring fans and had a beautiful moment in the sun!
It’s rare to see Katie and Suri out in public together, so it was even more of a delight to see that Katie had brought her kiddo as her special date to the Global Citizen Festival. Katie was one of the hosts of the event, which aims to bring awareness to social issues such as rampant poverty — through the power of amazing musical acts of all different genres playing together for one beautiful day in Central Park.
Katie took to the stage in front of tens of thousands of festival attendees to address the crowd about the fest’s very important message and meaning. But she didn’t do it alone; cutie pie Suri came up onstage with mom to wave to the audience as they all cheered her on, loud and proud!
Suri looked adorable in a tiny crocheted sweater, grey leggings and a cute pink dress, wearing a lanyard just like mom’s! That little happy face is just too cute for words! It’s so nice seeing these two out together; Katie has worked very hard to keep her and Suri’s lives very private since splitting with her dad, Tom Cruise, so it’s not that often they’re spotted out and about. But this event must have been too special to miss!
