Idris Elba, Lady Gaga & Burna Boy will headline Global Citizen’s ‘One World: Together At Home’ concert.


Without doubts, the virus has changed the way we use the internet. More than 2/3 of the the world’s population have been advised or forced to stay at home, which translates to spending more of time behind the screens. As the world unites to combat the novel pandemic, Global Citizen and the World Health Organization (WHO) have launched the ‘One World: Together At Home’ campaign in special support of the health care workers at the frontline of the outbreak. Both organisations hope the movement will help inspire action to end coronavirus through music and more.

The global special will celebrate and support our health workers whilst uniting the world in support of WHO’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund. Hugh Evans, the cofounder and CEO of Global Citizen hopes that humanity will emerge from this moment and be forever grateful for the work of doctors, nurses, teachers, grocery store workers, and all of those who are the backbone of our communities during this period. According to OkayAfrica, the initiative has already raised USD 35 million which will be used to cater for healthcare workers and various relief efforts amid the outbreak.

The concert is in collaboration with American singer Lady Gaga will also feature an array of artists and celebrities including Burna Boy, British actor Idris Elba and his wife Sabrina. The couple tested positive to the virus and have been receiving treatment with hopeful signs of recovery.

Other notable names expected at the event are J Balvin, Kacey Musgraves, Keith Urban, Lang Lang, Maluma, Paul McCartney, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, John Legend, Stevie Wonder, Lizzo, David Beckham, Kerry Washington, Billie Eilish, Alanis Morissette, Andrea Bocelli, Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day, Chris Martin, Eddie Vedder, Elton John and FINNEAS.

The special will be broadcast live on Saturday, April 18, at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET on ABC, NBC, ViacomCBS Networks, and iHeartMedia, as well as Bell Media networks and platforms in Canada.
