Starstudded coronavirus concert to be aired

Global Citizen has partnered with the World Health Organization for the One World: Together At Home special event and is just an initiative to express gratitude towards everyone working on the frontlines to fight this pandemic.

The star-studded broadcast, staged in conjunction with Global Citizen and the World Health Organisation (WHO), supports the Covid-19 Response Fund, set up by the UN Foundation.

Pop and classical musicians from the United States, Asia and the Middle East, all performing from their homes, appeared on the One World: Together at Home live stream due to run for six hours to pay tribute to frontline workers battling the health crisis around the world.

The Prayer, a song with that much vocal and celebrity firepower, was obviously going to be reserved for the climax of the long day of music.

Lady gaga told a WHO briefing ahead of the event it was meant to continue the "love letter to the world" that is the "fearless global effort" against COVID-19, which has left more than 154,000 dead worldwide.

He said: "I have a lot of time for all the doctors and the nurses, and the medical staff to keep us healthy".

None apart from Queen Bey herself joined in to thank "true heroes" who're "away from their households, taking good care of ours".

British actor Idris Elba - who was diagnosed with and recovered from coronavirus - also took part.

"Tonight, throughout the worldwide language of music, we salute the bravery and sacrifice of wellness heroes and many others", stated UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres in a clip played throughout the broadcast.
