Through music, entertainment and impact, the global live-cast will celebrate those who risk their own health to safeguard everyone else’s.”

We may have to be apart physically for a while, but we can still come together virtually to enjoy great music. The ‘One World: Together at Home’ concert represents a powerful show of solidarity against a common threat.”
