On Saturday night, get ready to watch something unlike you have ever seen as your favorite celebrities band together to help end Coronavirus.

Celebrities like Alicia Keys, Amy Poehler, Awkwafina, Camila Cabello, Celine Dion, Ellen DeGeneres, Jennifer Lopez, LL Cool J, Lupita Nyong’o, Matthew McConaughey, Oprah Winfrey, Pharrell Williams, Sam Smith, Shawn Mendes, Taylor Swift, Usher, Victoria Beckham, and over 70 more celebrities are all appearing on a special called One World: Together at Home.

The special was organized by Lady Gaga and it will be hosted by Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, and Stephen Colbert.

Leading up to the global broadcast special, there will be a six-hour streamed event, curated from around the world, to support brave healthcare workers doing life-saving work on the front lines. The One World: Together at Home streamed event will reach millions around the world digitally.

The goal of the special is to bring awareness about COVID-19 by celebrating the efforts of community health workers and donations you can make to the WHO's Solidarity Response Fund. The money will go towards support to healthcare workers around the world and local charities that help give food, shelter, and healthcare to those that need it most.

“We are grateful to the private sector who have listened to the public’s call for action and come together to support the global response to COVID19. This pandemic is too large for governments to tackle alone,” said Hugh Evans, co-founder and CEO of Global Citizen. “We are also incredibly grateful for the continued support from the artist community to make One World: Together at Home a moment of global unity. Our hope for the special is that everyone will come away believing that we, as a shared humanity, can emerge from this moment forever grateful for the work of doctors, nurses, teachers, grocery store workers and all those who are the backbone of our communities.”

You can watch One World: Together at Home on all major networks, including WMAR and Bounce, starting at 8 p.m. The digital stream will start at 11 a.m. and will be available on Alibaba, Amazon Prime Video, Apple, Facebook, Instagram, LiveXLive, Tencent, Tencent Music Entertainment Group, TIDAL, TuneIn, Twitch, Twitter, Yahoo and YouTube.
