On their website, Global Citizen asks people to pledge to stay home in order to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. The pledge begins with the statement, “In the face of lockdowns and losses, it’s easy to feel helpless — but there are things we can all do to beat coronavirus.” This means washing your hands, staying home, and asking others to take action, but for Global Citizen, one of the things they’re doing to beat coronavirus is keeping up by hosting virtual #TogetherAtHome daily concerts with artists like Lennon Stella, Shawn Mendes, and Camila Cabello.
Their latest One World: Together at Home concert features a lineup of artists curated by Lady Gaga and Global Citizen and will be hosted by late-night talk show hosts Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, and Stephen Colbert. There will be appearances from Alanis Morissette, Andrea Bocelli, Billie Eilish, Billie Joe Armstrong, Burna Boy, Chris Martin, David Beckham, Eddie Vedder, Elton John, Finneas O’Connell, Idris and Sabrina Elba, J Balvin, John Legend, Kacey Musgraves, Keith Urban, Kerry Washington, Lang Lang, Lizzo, Maluma, Paul McCartney, Priyanka Chopra Jones, Shah Rukh Khan, Stevie Wonder, and of course, Lady Gaga.
You can watch the concert, Saturday, April 18, at 8:00 PM ET. It will air on ABC, NBC, ViacomCBS Networks, iHeartMedia, and Bell Media networks and platforms in Canada as well as on major streaming platforms like YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Amazon Prime, and Apple TV. It will also air the following day, Sunday, April 19, on BBC One.
The whole concert is in support of healthcare workers and the World Health Organization (WHO). During the event, healthcare workers and experts will share their experiences and knowledge. During an interview with Jimmy Fallon, Lady Gaga said, “It’s this valiant effort that we’re all witnessing in the medical community… take a second to marvel at the bravery.”
