The World Health Organization, Global Citizen, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift and a host of stars unite in the fight to end the spread of COVID-19
The world is united in its fight against COVID-19. In difficult and uncertain times like these, we look to our world leaders and role models across the globe for guidance… And who better to turn to than Lady Gaga?
On Sunday, April 19, the world will come together to watch One World: Together At Home – a special one-time event to raise awareness and generate funding to eliminate COVID-19.
Global Citizen and the World Health Organization (WHO) are partnering for the star-studded show and will feature many – and we mean a great many – of the world’s biggest artists from their own homes, with a mighty long list of talent curated by none other than Lady Gaga.
The event will be simulcast across the globe, Sunday, April 19 from midday New Zealand time.
One World: Together at Home follows on from the success of the digital series of the same name, and aims to celebrate the efforts of health workers and support the World Health Organization.
The at-home entertainment event will feature exclusive appearances by Alanis Morissette, Alicia Keys, Amy Poehler, Andrea Bocelli, Awkwafina, Billie Eilish, Camila Cabello, Celine Dion, Chris Martin, David and Victoria Beckham, Eddie Vedder, Elton John, FINNEAS, Idris and Sabrina Elba, J Balvin, Jennifer Lopez, John Legend, Kacey Musgraves, Keith Urban, Kerry Washington, Lang Lang, Lizzo, Lupita Nyong’o, Maluma, Matthew McConaughey, Oprah Winfrey, Paul McCartney, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Sam Smith, Shah Rukh Khan, Shawn Mendes, Stevie Wonder, Taylor Swift, Usher, and many, many more.
The two-hour programme will be hosted by a trio of U.S. late-night hosts: Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel and Stephen Colbert and will include performances from the world’s biggest artists with multimillion-dollar pledges to the WHO’s Solidarity Response Fund.
Hoping to lift the spirits of people across the world from the comfort and safety of their own homes, One World: Together At Home will include cameos from the world of music and arts, sports superstars, and comedic sketches, with the core purpose being to educate and inform on COVID-19 risks, prevention, and response.
The broadcast will also feature interviews with experts from the WHO as well as stories of frontline healthcare workers from around the world.
