Are you ready for another star-packed TV special featuring artists appearing from their homes?
Paul McCartney, Pearl Jam‘s Eddie Vdder and Elton John are among the many famous music stars set to take part in One World: Together at Home, a two-hour special from Global Citizen and the World Health Organization that will air April 18 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC, NBC and CBS, as well as other networks and platforms.
The program will be hosted by Jimmy Fallon, Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel, and will be curated by Lady Gaga.
Celebrities and artists who will participate in the special include Green Day‘s Billlie Joe Armstrong, Stevie Wonder, Coldplay‘s Chris Martin, Alanis Morissette, Andrea Bocelli, Billie Eilish, Latin superstar J Balvin, John Legend, country stars Kacey Musgraves and Keith Urban, Lizzo, soccer legend David Beckham, and actors Idris Elba, Kerry Washington and Priyanka Chopra Jonas.
The special isn’t a telethon — it’s described as a “global broad entertainment special to celebrate the heroic efforts of community health workers and support the World Health Organization and the global fight to end COVID-19.”
In addition, the special’s stated purpose is to “educate and inform on COVID-19 risks, prevention and response,” so in addition to the stars, WHO experts and healthcare workers will appear.
Other platforms where you can watch or stream the show include Bravo, E!, ABC News Live, Freeform, MTV, CMT, Comedy Central, VH1, SYFY, MSNBC, Facebook, Hulu, Instagram, Apple, YouTube ad Yahoo. Basically, there’s no excuse not to watch it. For more information, visit GlobalCitizen.org/togetherathome.
Elton hosted and performed on a similarly star-studded COVID charity special, Living Room Concert for America, that aired on Fox on March 29. Armstrong also was among the performers on that program.
