After a number of artists came forward to do online concerts to encourage people to stay at home, Global Citizen – an organization dedicated to ending extreme poverty – has announced that they'll be organizing a special event to show their support on the COVID-19 frontliners.
Entitled One World: Together at Home, the global broadcast set to happen on April 18 will feature an all-star lineup of performers curated by Lady Gaga and hosted by Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, and Stephen Colbert. The show aims to "inspire action to end coronavirus with music and more".
We’re excited to announce One World: #TogetherAtHome, a global broadcast on April 18, curated in collaboration with @LadyGaga and featuring your favorite artists and comedians — all in support of the @WHO and healthcare workers on the frontlines of the COVID-19 crisis.

The upcoming global live-cast is part of the Together at Home campaign which calls on individuals from all over the world to ask world leaders and corporations to step up in supporting and providing resources to the global COVID-19 response. The event will also be a fundraiser and all the proceeds will go to the World Health Organization's Solidarity Response fund, responsible for supporting health care workers.

The line-up includes Lady Gaga, Alanis Morissette, Andrea Bocelli, Billie Eilish, Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day, Burna Boy, Chris Martin, David Beckham, Eddie Vedder, Elton John, FINNEAS, Idris and Sabrina Elba, J Balvin, John Legend, Kacey Musgraves, Keith Urban, Kerry Washington, Lang Lang, Lizzo, Maluma, Paul McCartney, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Shah Rukh Khan, and Stevie Wonder.
