  • Superstar concert to support health workers

    WHO and Lady Gaga helping to organise global event to be broadcast on Saturday

    Taylor Swift, Billie Eilish and the Rolling Stones will be among the headliners of a show to be broadcast globally on Saturday in support of healthcare workers combatting coronavirus.

    Veteran A-listers including Celine Dion, Elton John, Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder are all set to participate.

    A six-hour streamed event will precede the prime-time televised broadcast, with a laundry list of celebrities set to appear including Christine and the Queens, actors Don Cheadle and Samuel L Jackson, and football star Megan Rapinoe.

    It also will urge philanthropists and governments to support the WHO in its coronavirus response efforts, saying it has already raised $35 million for the international health body.

    God not this shit again, just leave the fund raising to old blokes walking around the garden, he's raised 20 million quid without subjecting the public to the same old has beens. Surely it should have some Chinese singers on to remind the world where it came from and who spread it.

                      "One World: Together at Home" raises millions for coronavirus causes



                      The star-studded Lady Gaga-curated fundraising event "One World: Together at Home" raised $127.9 million for the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for WHO and $72.8 million for local and regional responders, organizer Global Citizen said in a statement early Sunday.

                      Why it matters: Saturday's online event honoring and celebrating those on the front lines of the fight against the novel coronavirus was broadcast worldwide and billed as the biggest concert since 1985's Live Aid, which was watched by 1.9 billion people. Former first ladies Laura Bush and Michelle Obama were among more than 70 artists and celebrities to take part from their homes.

                      "The coming days will not be easy, but this global family of ours is strong. We will continue to be here for one another and we will get through this crisis. Together. Thank you."


                      What they're saying: "Laura and I want to express our overwhelming gratitude to the medical professionals, first responders and so many others on the front lines risking their lives on our behalf," Obama said.

                      Bush said they're "thankful for our pharmacists, the veterinarians, the police officers, the sanitation workers, and those of you working in grocery stores or delivering food or supplies to our homes. "You're the fabric of our country, and your strength will carry us through this crisis," she added.

                      Of note: As people around the globe tuned in to watch the event, the global death toll from COVID-19 passed 160,000.

                      The big picture: The event was broadcast live on TV and most leading streaming services, including YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Twitch, Twitter, Apple and Amazon Prime Video.: https://www.axios.com/one-world-toge...d5dfae3c6.html
