Music Stars Taking Part In 'One World: Together At Home'
Some of big names in music are lending their voices to One World: Together At Home, a virtual concert curated by Lady Gaga in support of health care workers and others impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Appearing or performing on the two-hour special are artists like Billie Eilish and her brother FINNEAS, Chris Martin, Eddie Vedder, Elton John, J Balvin, John Legend, Kacey Musgraves, Keith Urban, Lizzo, Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder and Canada’s Alanis Morissette.
Global Citizen launched an urgent campaign last month in support of the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organization, powered by the UN Foundation.
“As we honour 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,” said Hugh Evans, co-founder and CEO of Global Citizen, in a release.
“Through music, entertainment and impact, the global live-cast will celebrate those who risk their own health to safeguard everyone else’s.”
One World: Together At Home will be hosted by late night hosts Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel and Stephen Colbert.
The list of guests also includes Andrea Bocelli, Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong, Burna Boy, David Beckham, Idris and Sabrina Elba, Kerry Washington, Lang Lang, Maluma, Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Shah Rukh Khan.
One World: Together At Home is set for April 18 at 8 pm ET. In Canada, it will be streamed live on the iHeartRadio Canada app and simulcast on some iHeartRadio stations across the country. It will also air on CTV, CTV2, TSN, MUCH, MTV and VRAK and will be available anywhere CTV content is accessed.
“We may have to be apart physically for a little while, but we can still come together virtually to enjoy great music,” said Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, director-general of the World Health Organization. “The One World: Together At Home concert represents a powerful show of solidarity against a common threat.”
On March 29, Elton John hosted the iHeart Living Room Concert, which featured performances by Backstreet Boys, Alicia Keys, Billie Eilish, Sam Smith and others. It raised more than $10 million U.S. for American charities providing COVID-19 relief and $445,000 for the Canadian Red Cross.
