Lady Gaga hosts virtual concert: Benefit features Billie Eilish, Paul McCartney, Alanis Morrisette and more


Lady Gaga is gathering together (apart) a who’s who of the music industry for One World: Together at Home, a live-streamed and televised benefit concert in support of the World Health Organization’s Covid-19 solidarity response fund and in celebration of health workers around the world.

Very similar to Elton John’s living room concert last month, the event which broadcasts live across the US television networks ABC, CBS and NBC will be hosted by rival talk show hosts Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel and Stephen Colbert will host the event, which broadcasts live at 8 pm EST on April 18th on numerous streaming sites as well as on ABC, NBC, CBS, iHeartMedia and Bell Media networks.


The concert features performances from world-renowned musicians from the comfort of their own homes. In addition to Lady Gaga the concert will feature Canada’s Alanis Morissette, Andrea Bocelli, Billie Eilish and Finneas, Lizzo, Finneas, John Legend, Keith Urban, Stevie Wonder, Chris Martin of Coldplay, J Balvin, Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam, Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day, Burna Boy, Chris Martin of Keith Urban, HJohn Legend, Kacey Musgraves, Lang Lang and Paul McCartney.

Other celebrities expected to appear include David Beckham, Idris and Sabrina Elba, Kerry Washington, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Shah Rukh Khan and Sesame Street cast members.


“It is so important to think globally and support the World Health Organization to curb the pandemic and prevent future outbreaks,” Lady Gaga said. “We want to highlight the gravity of this historical, unprecedented, and cultural movement.”

The funds raised will go towards essential Personal Protective Equipment supplies and testing kits around the world and will help improve the lab capacity to rapidly process coronavirus tests, said Lady Gaga. It will also go towards research and development.

Curated in collaboration with Lady Gaga, the April 18 global special has already raised $35 million so far.
