For the past few weeks, the Global Citizen organization and the World Health Organization have been presenting live at-home performances from some of music’s biggest stars, with artists like Coldplay, John Legend, The Lumineers, Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello, and many more all going live to raise awareness and money during the coronavirus crisis, helping to keep us connected during this time of social distancing. Now, ABC, NBC, and CBS are joining them for a cross-network special to support frontline healthcare workers during this uncertain time.
Lady Gaga is helping to curate the special event, hosted by normally-competing late night hosts Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, and Stephen Colbert. It’s called One World: Together at Home, and it is happening on April 18 with performances starting at 2PM ET / 11AM PT and the special starting at 8PM ET / 5PM PT. The event will also be available digitally on several other outlets, including right here and on the RADIO.COM app.
“As we honor and support the heroic efforts of community health workers, ‘One World: Together At Home’ aims to serve as a source of unity and encouragement in the global fight to end COVID-19,” says Global Citizen CEO Hugh Evans. “Through music, entertainment and impact, the global live-cast will celebrate those who risk their own health to safeguard everyone else’s.”
Joining Lady Gaga will be Paul McCartney, Taylor Swift, Elton John, Billie Eilish and FINNEAS, Stevie Wonder, Lizzo, Eddie Vedder, John Legend, Chris Martin, Kacey Musgraves, J Balvin, Keith Urban, Alanis Morissette, Andrea Bocelli, Billie Joe Armstrong, and many more.
Gaga helped make the announcement, explaining that Global Citizen has raised $35 million in just 7 days. The upcoming show itself is not designed to be a fundraiser, but more of a "message of solidarity" during this time.
Since early March, Global Citizen have been raising money for COVID-19 relief and awareness through their #TogetherAtHome campaign and live performances. You can learn more about the upcoming show and how you can help at GlobalCitizen.org.
