"It has been an honor to partner with Global Citizen over the past several weeks as we've been working together behind the scenes to raise money for the World Health Organization (WHO) COVID19 Solidarity Response Fund".
"We are bringing together the greatest artists in the world under the passionate and extremely talented curation of Lady Gaga", he said.
On Saturday, April 18, the World Health Organization and Global Citizen will team up for One World: Together at Home, an all-star televised and livestreamed special in support of the fight against coronavirus.
She clarified that One World was not a fundraising telethon and would focus on entertainment and messages of solidarity, with philanthropists and businesses urged to donate to the COVID-19 solidarity response fund ahead of the event.
Gaga explained the aim of the unique event is to "celebrate and highlight the singular kind global community and celebrate the power of human spirit". Hugh Evans, co-founder and CEO of Global Citizen, said in a statement on the World Health Organization website.
While previous celeb-led efforts to boost morale during the pandemic have fallen a little flat in terms of actual impact (we're looking at you, Gal Gadot ), the One World: Together at Home event has already raised a huge amount of money.
The show will feature exclusive, special cameos from the worlds of music and arts, sports superstars, and comedic sketches, while always drawing back to its core objective - to educate and inform on COVID-19 risks, prevention and response.
The BBC have secured rights for the United Kingdom market, with a highlights package featuring exclusive performances from some of the United Kingdom artists along with interviews with workers who are on the frontline in the battle against coronavirus set to air on April 19 on BBC One and iPlayer.
