Who is hosting "One World: Together at Home"?
The concert on Saturday will be hosted by Jimmy Fallon of "The Tonight Show," Jimmy Kimmel of "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and Stephen Colbert of "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert." Some of our favorites from "Sesame Street" will also be on hand to inspire people around the world to take meaningful actions that increase support for the global COVID-19 response.
“It airs 8 p.m ET, 5 p.m. PT, and it is epic,” Fallon said of the event that will span networks and unite artists. “This thing is going to be crazy. I’m talking Paul McCartney, Elton John, Keith Urban, Green Day, Eddie Vedder, Kacey Musgraves — like, you name it, they’re there. Lady Gaga, obviously, will kick off the show. It’s not a telethon.”
And while it’s not a telethon, through corporate donations Global Citizen has already raised over $40 million. Sponsors for the event include The Coca-Cola Company, GlaxoSmithKline, Johnson & Johnson, PepsiCo, Target, Verizon and many more who have supported the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund as well as regional charities who are working to meet immediate coronavirus-related needs at the local level.
“We are grateful to the private sector who have listened to the public’s call for action and come together to support the global response to COVID-19. This pandemic is too large for governments to tackle alone," Hugh Evans, co-founder and CEO of Global Citizen, said in a statement to TODAY.
"We are also incredibly grateful for the continued support from the artist community to make ‘One World: Together At Home’ a moment of global unity. Our hope for the special is that everyone will come away believing that we, as a shared humanity, can emerge from this moment forever grateful for the work of doctors, nurses, teachers, grocery store workers, and all those who are the backbone of our communities.”
