How to watch tonight’s One World: Together at Home benefit concert

Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong, Awkwafina, David Beckham, Billie Eilish, Idris Elba, John Legend, Lizzo … the list of artists and celebrities performing from their homes tonight or otherwise taking part in the One World: Together at Home event seems endless. Tonight’s concert — curated by Lady Gaga and organized by Global Citizen and the World Health Organization — will raise funds to support frontline healthcare workers. Stars like Elton John, Taylor Swift, the Rolling Stones, and Stevie Wonder are all set to perform as well.

In some ways, the benefit is reminiscent of 1985’s Live Aid concert, which brought together some of the biggest artists of the day to raise money for famine relief in Ethiopia. But unlike Live Aid, One World’s participants will be sheltering at home as part of social distancing measures to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, officially known as COVID-19.
