NBC, ABC And CBS will team up for a Coronavirus Relief TV special called “One World: Together At Home.” The event will be hosted by Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, and Stephen Colbert.
The star-studded event is produced in partnership with Global Citizen and the World Health Organization and is set to air from 8-10 p.m. on April 18 live across multiple TV networks, according to The Hill.
The virtual special, hosted by the networks late-night talk show hosts, will include appearances from the likes of Lady Gaga, Paul McCartney, Lizzo, Billie Eilish, Stevie Wonder and John Legend stars as Americans remain in their homes during the coronavirus outbreak.
“We need to tell the stories of and celebrate the front line community, health care workers, and their acts of kindness,” Gaga said at a WHO news briefing.
“We want to highlight the gravity of this historical, unprecedented, cultural moment,” she added. “We want to celebrate and encourage the power of the human spirit.”
“I would like to also let you know that this broadcast special is not actually a fundraiser,” the 34-year-old singer shared. “We all wanted to raise the money before we went on air.”
Gaga said she had spent the weekend collecting $35 million in donations from corporations, tech companies and philanthropists for the WHO’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund to fight the coronavirus, which will go towards “essential [personal protective equipment], supplies, and testing kits around the world, and will help improve lab capacity.”
The special will celebrate community health care workers and support the WHO’s global fight to end COVID-19.
