NBC, ABC, and CBS are teaming up for a historic global broadcast to raise funds for the fight against coronavirus.
The special broadcast will celebrate community health care workers while promoting the WHO’s global fight against coronavirus. Lady Gaga will curate the fundraiser, which will feature exclusive appearances by Billie Eilish, Green Day, Kieth Urban, and many more.
Set to air Saturday, April 18, from 8-10p.m. ET/PT, One World: Together at Home will host Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, and Stephen Colbert on the broadcast. It is being produced in partnership with Global Citizen and the World Health Organization.
The special broadcast will educate viewers about coronavirus risks, prevention, and response. Interviews with experts from WHO and health care workers who are on the frontline will also be held on the show.
Financial commitments from supporters and corporate partners will go to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund. The coronavirus response team is powered by the U.N. Foundation to support and equip healthcare workers around the world.
One World: Together at Home is just the latest example of how TV networks are helping to support fundraising efforts for various organizations around the world in the battle against coronavirus.
