Get ready, you guys, because a bunch of your favorite stars are teaming up in attempt to raise money for charity amid the growing coronavirus pandemic. Yep, over 70 stars have agreed to perform for the upcoming “One World: Together at Home” concert, and we’re seriously living for the star-studded lineup!
Lady Gaga, the World Health Organization and Global Citizen are behind the spectacular event, which will take place on Saturday, April 18 and has already raised more than $35 million to combat the deadly disease. For those who missed it, over 2,000,000 people have contracted the coronavirus so far, resulting in more than 129,000 deaths. Medical professionals have called for “social distancing” to prevent further spreading of the illness, which is defined as “trying to keep yourself away from other people, especially large crowds.” Because of this many events, concerts, award shows, conventions and festivals have been canceled, including all Broadway plays and sports games. People are urged to stay indoors, avoid public places and isolate themselves during this time.
