One World: Together At Home was a historic, eight-hour cross-platform global special organized by Global Citizen, WHO and Lady Gaga that celebrated and supported healthcare workers and others on the frontlines as they lead the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. The broadcast, carried on more than sixty networks and nine digital platforms around the world, included leading global health experts alongside exciting performances by the world’s top artists and comedians.
With Lady Gaga setting the show’s creative direction and curating the exceptional line up, the event was simultaneously broadcast in the U.S. on ABC, CBS and NBC and hosted by the networks’ late-night hosts Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel. The album features some of music’s biggest names including Billie Eilish, Jennifer Hudson, Elton John, Juanes, Lizzo, Jennifer Lopez, Paul McCartney, Kacey Musgraves, The Rolling Stones, Taylor Swift, Keith Urban, Eddie Vedder and Stevie Wonder, among many, many more.
Contributions will go directly to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund to support and equip healthcare workers around the world. WHO is positioned to lead and coordinate the global response and support in particular countries where health systems are weaker.
