Lady Gaga organises global online concert to support coronavirus frontline workers

Celebrities across the world have been broadcasting concerts from their homes as part of a series of solidarity sessions in recent weeks.

And now dozens of global superstars are coming together for a massive online concert to raise money for frontline workers battling coronavirus (COVID-19).

Organised by charity Global Citizen and curated by Lady Gaga, the concert will see performances from the likes of Billie Eilish, Burna Boy, Elton John, Lizzo, and Stevie Wonder, among others.

You’ll be able to watch the show across multiple platforms including YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Amazon Prime and BBC Music.

The One World: Together At Home concert, which will take place on Saturday April 18, will be hosted by Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel and Stephen Colbert.

Lady Gaga announced the concert on Twitter, shortly after revealing the Solidarity Response Fund had already raised more than US$35 million from donations from some of the world’s largest companies.

She said in a statement, “It is an honour to help curate this huge broadcast event, which will take place on April 18. I’ll also be performing.

“We want to celebrate and highlight the singular kind global community and celebrate the power of the human spirit.”

The concert will be free to watch, and it is hoped that those who can will donate money to the cause prior to tuning in.

Lady Gaga added, “We will raise the money before we go on air, so when we do go live, put your wallets away and sit back and enjoy the show that you all very much deserve.”
