WHO has already been able to raise over $35 million for this event, and hopefully that is just the start. The event will be taking place on April 18th at 5 PM PT/ 8 PM ET. You can stream the concert using a number of networks such as ABC, NBC, ViacomCBS Networks, and iHeartmedia. BBC is running the program internationally on the following day, Sunday, April 19 with a few other broadcasters.
The One World: Together at Home has a star-studded line-up. The special is being hosted by the hilarious trio of Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon, and Jimmy Kimmel. The event will feature performances by several big names such as Stevie Wonder, Billie Eilish, Elton John, Paul McCartney, and many more.
It’s nice to see someone like Lady Gaga step up and actually make a valiant effort to help fight the spread of coronavirus.

The One World: Together at Home concert will also provide a fun way to celebrate and acknowledge all the great work done by people on the front lines of health care.
