Virtual Concert Tonight: ‘One World: Together At Home’ In Support of Health Care Workers.
As the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic continues to force people apart, Global Citizen is using the power of music and advocacy to bring people together with One World: Together At Home.
Announced on April 6, One World: Together At Home is a global special curated in collaboration with Lady Gaga, premiering Saturday, April 18, in celebration and support of health care workers and the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organization (WHO).
It will include appearances and performances by today’s most notable entertainers — and on Tuesday, the organization released a new list of participants, including Alicia Keys, Amy Poehler, Awkwafina, Camila Cabello, Céline Dion, Ellen DeGeneres, Jennifer Lopez, LL COOL J, Lupita Nyong’o, Matthew McConaughey, Oprah Winfrey, Pharrell Williams, the Rolling Stones, Sam Smith, Shawn Mendes, Taylor Swift, Usher, Victoria Beckham, and more.
The special event will be hosted by Jimmy Fallon of The Tonight Show, Jimmy Kimmel of Jimmy Kimmel Live, and Stephen Colbert of The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. Friends from Sesame Street will also add to the incredible lineup.
“We are grateful to the private sector who have listened to the public’s call for action and come together to support the global response to COVID19. This pandemic is too large for governments to tackle alone,” said Hugh Evans, co-founder and CEO of Global Citizen.
We’re calling on individuals and philanthropists to join and support COVID-19 response initiatives. Changemakers, investors, and foundation leaders are being urged to support global health efforts by investing in building stronger health systems and funding vaccine development.
“We are also incredibly grateful for the continued support from the artist community to make One World: Together At Home a moment of global unity,” Evans said. “Our hope for the special is that everyone will come away believing that we, as a shared humanity, can emerge from this moment forever grateful for the work of doctors, nurses, teachers, grocery store workers, and all those who are the backbone of our communities.”
