Lady Gaga, Global Citizen & WHO Announce Virtual Concert for Coronavirus Relief

Lady Gaga is taking her kindness to the next level.

The superstar has announced she’s going global along with Billie Eilish, Lizzo, Jimmy Kimmel, John Legend, Keith Urban and a bunch of other stars for a virtual concert special to benefit healthcare workers battling the coronavirus pandemic.

The concert, which will be broadcast on Saturday, April 18 on social media platforms as well as TV networks around the world, is a collab with the World Health Organisation and Global Citizen.

Gaga has already raised $35 million through donations from 68 corporate partners and the goal now is to generate more donations for WHO’s Covid-19 Solidarity Response Fund before the concert airs.

According to the singer, the funds will then be used “to track and understand the spread of the virus, to ensure patients get the care they need and frontline workers get essential supplies and information” to help them develop vaccines, tests and treatments.
