On April 18, musical artists came together virtually for a televised concert, One World: Together at Home, which paid tribute to those essential workers and medical staff who remain on the frontline of the fight against the coronavirus. The event was organized by Global Citizen on behalf of the World Health Organization and United Nations, and hosted by Lady Gaga, who broadcasted from the comfort of her home studio.
