Lady Gaga has curated a coronavirus benefit concert called One World: Together At Home, which will see the likes of Billie Eilish, Kacey Musgraves, and many others perform.

The concert is curated by Gaga, and will be hosted by TV chat show hosts Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, and Stephen Colbert.

One World: Together At Home will benefit the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund, which supports "WHO’s work to track and understand the spread of the virus; to ensure patients get the care they need and frontline workers get essential supplies and information; and to accelerate efforts to develop vaccines, tests, and treatments."

As well as Billie Eilish and Kacey Musgraves, the concert will see Coldplay's Chris Martin, Paul McCartney, Alanis Morissette, Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day, Burna Boy, Eddie Vedder, Elton John, FINNEAS, J Balvin, John Legend, Lizzo, and Stevie Wonder make appearances.

The show will be broadcast in the US on 18 April via tv networks ABC, CBS and NBC, as well as online. BBC One will host an adapted version of the programme on 19 April, which will feature more appearances from UK artists, and interviews with key workers during the pandemic.

In a press conference that took place yesterday (6 April), Lady Gaga revealed that she's helped Global Citizen to raide over $35million in the past week towards WHO's coronavirus relief efforts.

One World: Together At Home will be available in the UK via BBC on 19 April.
