Lady Gaga teams up with WHO for global live show

Apr 07, 2020

Geneva (Switzerland), Apr 7: Singer-songwriter Lady Gaga will curate a star-studded live event that will be streamed globally to celebrate and support healthcare workers battling the coronavirus at the frontlines.
The superstar joined the World Health Organization's news conference on Monday via video link to express deep gratitude to the medical community.
Lady Gaga said her "heart is very, very achy and warm" for ER doctors as well as nurses who are sleeping in cars to make sure they don't infect their families or patients.
She said, "What you're doing is putting yourselves in harm's way to help the world," and added, "You are a triumph, truly."
Lady Gaga said she will spearhead a globally televised and streamed special on April 18 planned by the WHO and the international advocacy organization Global Citizen.
"One World: Together At Home" will feature performances by stars including Paul McCartney, Elton John and Stevie Wonder.
Lady Gaga and Global Citizen have been raising funds for the WHO to secure masks for medical workers and to supply test kits around the world.
But she had this message for the viewers of the program: "Put your wallets away, put your credit cards away, put anything away that you need to, and sit back and enjoy the show that you very much deserve."
