“The World Health Organization is committed to defeating the coronavirus pandemic with science and public health measures, and supporting the health workers who are on the frontlines of the response,” said Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director-General of WHO. “We may have to be apart physically for a while, but we can still come together virtually to enjoy great music. The ‘One World: Together At Home’ concert represents a powerful show of solidarity against a common threat.”
One World: Together At Home will be broadcast on major television networks worldwide and streamed online on multiple platforms on Saturday, 18 April 2020 at 17:00 (Los Angeles time), 20:00 New York time and 01:00 London time.
