In some positive news (and we all really need some), Lady Gaga, in partnership with the World Health Organization (WHO) and Global Citizen, has announced One World: Together at Home: a live streamed concert event slated for April 18.
Gaga revealed that she has already raised over $35 million for the UN’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund, with donations from a mix of philanthropists and corporations. The livestream is free to watch and, according to the Global Citizen site, will “highlight stories from the world’s health care heroes, as well as messages of gratitude and appreciation from those who they’ve treated.”
“We are all so very grateful to all of the health care professionals across the country and around the world, who are on the frontlines during COVID-19…,” Gaga said in a press release. “What you are doing is putting yourselves in harm’s way to help the world and we all salute you.”
The broadcast will feature tons of musicians like Billie Eilish, Elton John, Paul McCartney, Alanis Morisette, Taylor Swift, Shawn Mendes, Camila Cabello, Celine Dion and Lizzo. Actors and public figures such as Kerry Washington, David Beckham, Oprah Winfrey, Lupita Nyong’o, Ellen DeGeneres, Matthew McConaughey and Priyanka Chopra Jonas will also be part of the stream. Late night talk show hosts Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel and Stephen Colbert will be splitting the hosting duties for the event.
Additionally, there will be a six-hour, pre-concert digital stream lasting all afternoon, featuring Jessie Reyez, Lilly Singh, Ellie Goulding, FINNEAS, Niall Horan, Sarah Jessica Parker and many more.
You can stream One World: Together at Home on Amazon Prime Video along with Twitter, Facebook and select Bell Media networks on April 18 at 8 p.m. EST, with the pre-show commencing at 2 p.m. EST. You can find all the details, including the full list of performers here.
