The event, whose lineup was curated by Lady Gaga, is a joint effort between the World Health Organization and Global Citizen, presented by TuneIn. The evening’s ultimate goal is to express sincere gratitude and support to the healthcare workers fighting against COVID-19.
During a digital press conference, Gaga announced that within just the last week of organizing with sponsors they have raised over $35 million to aid in the COVID-19 response. Rather than making this a telethon-style event, Gaga said, “We want to raise the money before we go on air. When we do go on air, put your wallets away, your credit cards away, and enjoy the show.”
One World: Together At Home will air on NBC, ABC, ViacomCBS Networks, iHeartMedia, and Bell Media networks as well as stream on Alibaba, Amazon Prime Video, Apple, Facebook, Instagram, LiveXLive, Tencent, Tencent Music Entertainment Group, TIDAL, TuneIn, Twitch, Twitter, Yahoo and YouTube.
“We are proud to join forces with One World: Together At Home to help suppress the transmission of the virus, minimize social-economic impacts on the global community and work together now to advance Global Goals for the future,” said António Guterres, secretary-general of the United Nations. “There is no greater case for collective action than our joint response to COVID-19 – we are in this together and we will get through this together.”
Donations made before the event will go to benefit the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for WHO, which provides necessary medical supplies to healthcare workers on the front lines. Additionally, the organization also works with local charities to supply food, shelter, and healthcare in effected areas. For more information, visit the organization’s website.
