The event will help the World Health Organization COVID19 Solidarity Response Fund which tracks the pandemic around the globe and provides equipment to patients and doctors.
Big problems demand big solutions, and honestly who else is big enough to set up a global fundraising event to help fight COVID-19 than Lady Gaga? The prolific pop star is collaborating with Global Citizen to raise money for the World Health Organization COVID19 Solidarity Response Fund which tracks the virus around the world and ensures that patients receive the care they need, and they haven't held back any punches.
On April 18th, One World: #TogetherAtHome will be broadcast around the world as a virtual, no-contact concert and to call it "star studded" is kind of like calling the sun "kind of bright". Stop us when we get to a name you don't recognize: Paul McCartney, Elton John, Stevie Wonder, Alanis Morissette, Chris Martin, David Beckham, Idris and Sabrina Elba, and that's not even the full line-up! Hosted by late night American comedy triad Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel and Stephen Colbert, the event promises to be a virtual extravaganza to brighten up the dark quarantined night. $35 million has already been raised over the past week due to #TogetherAtHome's series of smaller concerts.
"It's been an honor to help curate this huge broadcast event," Lady Gaga wrote online. "We want to celebrate and highlight the singular kind of global community and celebrate the power of the human spirit."
