We've seen celebrities come together for multi-network telethons during tragedies before, memorably after 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina, but the huge telecast that's planned to support COVID-19 coronavirus relief will have one huge difference - it won't be at an arena or stadium and most of the participants will be in their own homes.

But the participants are some of the biggest celebrities in the music world, headed by Lady Gaga, who raised $35 million already.

USAToday reports that the “One World: Together At Home" event will feature Gaga, Sir Paul McCartney, Elton John, Billie Eilish, Stevie Wonder, and more.

The event will air on networks from across the entertainment landscape, including ABC, NBC, CBS, YouTube, Apple, and Facebook, who are among just some of the biggest names.

You can catch the One World: Together At Home event next weekend, Saturday, April 18th starting at 8 P.M.
