Lady Gaga has curated a mega, star-studded virtual concert, scheduled for April 18.
The One World: Together At Home virtual concert is geared to be one of the most unforgettable events of the year, with the lasting effect of the 1985 Live Aid concert. The World Health Organization and Global Citizen announced this ambitious initiative with the aim of uniting those affected by COVID-19 and by celebrating the bravery of frontline healthcare workers. The Gaga-curated virtual event will be streamed across all major online platforms as well as being aired live on television at 8pm ET on April 18.
The impressive lineup includes the likes of Billie Eilish, Lizzo, and Elton John, Stevie Wonder, Paul McCartney, Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day, Alanis Morissette, Burna Boy, Andrea Bocelli, Chris Martin, Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam, John Legend, and will be hosted by Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel and Stephen Colbert.
In a WHO press conference on Monday, Gaga confirmed that $35 million has already been raised for Global Citizen in the past week. However, she emphasized that the aim of the concert was to “highlight the gravity of this historical, unprecedented cultural movement ” and to “celebrate and encourage the power of the human spirit.”
The show will be broadcast on ViacomCBS Networks, ABC, NBC, iHeartMedia and Bell Media broadcasting networks. The streaming will span Facebook, Instagram, Tidal, Twitter, Twitch, YouTube, and more.
