On Saturday night (April 18th), numerous networks and social and digital platforms aired the Lady Gaga-curated Global Citizen’s “One World: Together at Home” event to say thank you to all of the frontline workers, healthcare professionals and everyone else out there trying to stop the death, illness and destruction caused by COVID-19. Businesses and corporations and others donated nearly &128 Million dollars to the organization for world health.
Not one, but three Keith Urbans (by the magic of technology), performed Steve Winwood’s “Higher Love.” At the end of the performance, he was joined by hiw wife, Oscar-winning actress Nicole Kidman, to express their gratitude to all involved in stopping this disease.
What a night! A huge thank you to @ladygaga, @GlblCtzn, and @WHO for having me and arranging this entire show along with EVERYONE who performed and gave their time. #TogetherAtHome https://t.co/Pmvt5zFKLY pic.twitter.com/fCZqgMe6z6

Kacey Musgraves performed her ethereal and hopeful song, “Rainbow” (from her Golden Hour album — and a huge fan favorite), during the show.
After thanking everyone on the frontlines, Kacey said she chose to sing “Rainbow,” because she was inspired by everyone posting their homemade rainbows sowing support for people with the Coronavirus. “I’ve also been really loving seeing everyone’s rainbows in their windows. It’s inspired me to sing this song for you.”
Taylor Swift also performed her heart-wrenching “Soon You’ll Get Better,” which appears on her latest album, “Lover.”
The Rolling Stones, Stevie Wonder, Sir Paul McCartney, Sir Elton John, John Legend, Sam Smith, Maren Morris, Lizzo, Madonna, Jennifer Lopez, Jennifer Hudson and many others also performed during the event.
