The advocacy group Global Citizen and the World Health Organization (WHO) have announced a global concert curated by Lady Gaga to support healthcare workers across the globe who have been fighting to contain the spread of COVID-19.
In addition to Gaga, the forthcoming Live Aid-style concert called One World: Together at Home will include a slew of performers such as Lizzo, Billie Eilish, Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder, Alanis Morissette, Billie Joe Armstrong and Eddie Vedder, with hosts Jimmy Fallon, Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel, according to a press release.
Hugh Evans, CEO of Global Citizen, said, “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. Through music, entertainment and impact, the global live-cast will celebrate those who risk their own health to safeguard everyone else’s.”
Viewers can tune in at 8 p.m. EST to any of the participating networks, like ViacomCBS Networks, iHeartMedia, ABC, NBC, or streaming platforms such as Amazon Prime Video, Facebook, Alibaba, Tidal, Twitter, YouTube and Twitch.
If the concert’s name sounds familiar, it’s because artists like Chris Martin and John Legend have been live streaming performances for the past few weeks as a part of the Together at Home series.
Gaga and Global Citizen have thus far raised over $35 million for coronavirus relief efforts. In a Twitter post, Gaga described “One World: Together at Home,” writing, “we want to celebrate and highlight the singular kind global community and celebrate the power of the human spirit.” She added, “We are going to continue fundraising, and I want to let you know now… this broadcast is not a fundraiser. We will raise the money before we go on air, so when we do go live, put your wallets away and sit back and enjoy the show that you all very much deserve. I love you all.”
