One World: Together at Home organizers said their eight-hour long livestreamed benefit concert on April 18, raised $127million for coronavirus relief efforts. 

World Health Organization and Global Citizen co-hosted a global on-air special to celebrate and support frontline healthcare workers. 

The event was hosted by late night hosts Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, and Stephen Colbert, alongside friends from Sesame Street.  

Various artists who performed were Lady Gaga, Andrea Bocelli, Chris Martin, Eddie Vedder, Elton John, FINNEAS, Idris, and Sabrina Elba, John Legend, Lang Lang, Lizzo, Maluma, Paul McCartney, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Shah Rukh Khan, Stevie Wonder, and many others. 


Benefits from the concert will go to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund, which aims to enable the tracking and containment of the spread of the coronavirus, ensuring patients and frontline workers get the resources they need while supporting and accelerating efforts to develop vaccines, tests, and treatments. 

Last month, in response to the global pandemic, Global Citizen launched an urgent campaign in support of the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund, which was kicked off by the Global Citizen Festival Curator, and Coldplay Frontman Chris Martin through the first  #TogetherAtHome Instagram live show.  

The campaign calls on individuals to take action and urges world leaders and corporations to support the response with sufficient resources.
