Mediacorp To Air Lady Gaga-Led COVID-19 Benefit Concert One World: Together At Home

Stay home for the mother of all at-home concerts this Sunday.

Advocacy group Global Citizen and the World Health Organisation, with a little help from Lady Gaga, are throwing a virtual benefit concert — a la Live Aid — which Mediacorp will be showing live this Sunday (Apr 19), 8am.

Called One World: Together at Home, the two-hour cross-platform special is curated by Lady Gaga and hosted by Jimmy Fallon, Stephen Colbert, and Jimmy Kimmel. The live event aims to raise COVID-19 awareness and celebrate the heroic efforts of the frontline healthcare personnel and essential services providers battling the pandemic around the world.

All for one: 'The One World: Together at Home' will be hosted by Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, and Stephen Colbert. 

The line-up includes Alanis Morissette, Andrea Bocelli, Billie Eilish, Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day, Burna Boy, Chris Martin, David Beckham, Eddie Vedder, Elton John, FINNEAS, Idris and Sabrina Elba, J Balvin, John Legend, Kacey Musgraves, Keith Urban, Kerry Washington, Lang Lang, Lizzo, Maluma, Paul McCartney, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Shah Rukh Khan and Stevie Wonder.

Lady Gaga, who has already raised US$35 million (S$49.5 mil) last week, has said that One World isn’t a fundraising telethon and will focus on entertainment and messages of solidarity. “Put your wallets away… and sit back and enjoy the show you all deserve,” she said. In other words: If you want to play a part, just stay home.
