Lately, many singers across the world have been holding live online performances to show their support during the severe global epidemic. Take Hong Kong singer Sam Hui (許冠傑), for example. Not too long ago, he threw a live online concert to raise funds for the employees of Tom Lee Music. But the latest to join the growing trend of virtual concerts is American singer-songwriter Lady Gaga – and she’s invited Hong Kong icons Jacky Cheung (张学友) and Eason Chan (陳奕迅) to participate.
Recently, the World Health Organization asked Lady Gaga to organize a global virtual concert “One World: Together at Home” with Global Citizen to support and raise funds for healthcare workers on the frontlines of the pandemic. She agreed to it and helped raise 35 million USD within a week for this benefit show.
To add to the star power, aside from Lady Gaga, Stevie Wonder, Paul McCartney, Alanis Morissette, Andrea Bocelli, Billie Eilish, Chris Martin, Elton John, and John Legend are all performing in the show. As it’s a global concert, Chinese performers Jacky, Eason, and Lang Lang (郎朗) are also included in the lineup.
The “One World: Together at Home” benefit show, which will be hosted by the three biggest names in late-night TV – Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, and Stephen Colbert, will be broadcast globally for free on Saturday, April 18 at 8 p.m. EST. The broadcast platforms include Amazon Prime Video, Apple, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and Tencent.
