The unexpected seems to be the spice of the season, but who knew that we’d all get a chance to witness the likes of Elton John, Paul McCartney, Lizzo, and Victoria and David Beckham, to name a few, on the same stage as anyone else in our time? At home!

Touted as the largest (virtual) gathering of popular artists and influencers since the 1985 Live Aid concert, Global Citizen’s 'One World: Together at Home' is one gig you don’t want to miss.

The event, in collaboration with the World Health Organization and Global Citizen, is meant to encourage people to take action against the spread of coronavirus by staying home and calling on elected officials. Lady Gaga, who called the show a love letter to healthcare workers, also helped curate the event, reports CNN.com.

This massive 8-hour concert was staged to raise crucial funds amid the coronavirus pandemic, and has raised $127.9 million.

A variety of musicians, actors and comedians joined the event via live stream to what artists do best- reassure, plead and entertain.

So what’s the lineup?

According to inews.co.uk, here's a full list of everyone performing...

How to tune in?

The concert will be live-streamed and broadcast in a multitude of ways.

If you’ve missed the live streaming you had to register for via BookMyShow, take note- you can watch the rerun on VH1 India, National Geographic India, Comedy Central India, Colors Infinity, and VOOT at 8pm, reports theweek.in. The special will also be streamed on WHO’s YouTube channel.

What to look forward to

Paul McCartney’s general but pointed political plea to strengthen the healthcare system, Beyonce’s reminder that the pandemic is crippling vulnerable communities at an alarming rate, and Shawn Mendes and Camilla Cabelo’s cosy, and sublime vocals to Louis Armstrong’s What a Wonderful World.

A bizarre (on paper) but beautiful (in quarantine) lineup of Andrea Bocelli, Celine Dion, John Legend, Lang Lang and Lady Gaga joined in together in for an organic, soulful and stunning finale.
