Lady Gaga Curates Concert Special with Global Citizen and WHO to Fight COVID-19
April 9, 2020
Global Citizen, the World Health Organization, and Lady Gaga announced “One World: Together At Home,” a live event designed to celebrate and honor healthcare workers around the world to support the U.N. Foundation’s COVID-19 Response Fund-Raiser. The concert will be broadcasted live on television and social media on Saturday, April 18, 2020, at 8:00 p.m. EST.
This event curated by Lady Gaga and hosted by Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, and Stephen Colbert will include performances by Stevie Wonder, Paul McCartney, Lizzo, Billie Eilish, Kacey Musgraves, Elton John, and many more. There will also be several special guest appearances including David Beckham, Idris Elba, and others. In addition to promoting one of the most extravagant lineups of the hundreds of live-streamed concerts that have been organized over the last couple of weeks since the world’s entertainment venues have shut down due to COVID-19, this Global Citizen event will be broadcast on major television networks including ABC, NBC, and CBS, and will stream on every social media platform.
One World: Together at Home comes to us just weeks after individual artists have begun performing their own live-streamed concerts on their Instagram pages via Instagram Live or other virtual platforms such as StageIt.com. Musical artists such as John Legend, Common, Chris Martin, and more have all streamed concerts to generate funds in response to COVID-19.
