‘One World: Together At Home’: Lizzo, Billie Eilish, Paul McCartney, Lady Gaga + More
In an effort to bolster COVID-19 relief initiatives administered by the World Health Organization, Global Citizen has partnered with the organization for a collaborative live stream. The global cross-network, cross-platform special “One World: Together At Home,” will benefit frontline healthcare workers and the WHO, officially airing on Saturday, April 18 at 8 p.m. Eastern Time and 5 p.m. Pacific Time. Watch the livestream below.
Taking place across channels ABC, NBC, CBS and additional digital streaming platforms respectively, the two-hour live broadcast will see well known late-night personalities Jimmy Kimmel, Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Fallon all co-hosting the event.
According to a statement, One World’s musical programming was curated in collaboration with GRAMMY-winning pop star Lady Gaga, who alongside Global Citizen has raised over $35 million for the cause within the last week. In a press conference, the artist said that by raising funds for coronavirus relief before the event will allow WHO and Global Citizen to avoid the historically popular telethon model and focus on the music and entertainment aspect of the show instead.
The show is set to feature a lineup of star-studded performances from GRAMMY-winners and nominees Lizzo, Stevie Wonder, Billie Eilish, John Legend, Kacey Musgraves, Maluma, J Balvin, Keith Urban and others. Personalities including David Beckham, Kerry Washington and additional comedians, athletes and actors will reportedly make appearances during the show.
In a statement underscoring the importance and universal purpose of livestreams like One World, WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus stated “The World Health Organization is committed to defeating the coronavirus pandemic with science and public health measures, and supporting the health workers who are on the frontlines of the response… We may have to be apart physically for a little while, but we can still come together virtually to enjoy great music. The ‘One World: Together at Home’ concert represents a powerful show of solidarity against a common threat.”
Fans can also catch the special aired live on the following networks and platforms; Bravo, E!, MSNBC, NBCSN, NBC News, SyFy, USA, Peacock, ABC News Live, Freeform, NatGeo, BET, MTV, CMT, Logo, Comedy Central, TV Land, VH1 and Paramount Network. One World will air internationally on BBC and Channel five in the UK, Argentina’s Telefe, Australia’s Network 10 and Canada’s Bell Media platforms.
