TAYLOR SWIFT, SHAWN MENDES, CELINE DION & MORE JOIN LADY GAGA’S ‘ONE WORLD: TOGETHER AT HOME’ EVENT – (04/15/2020)
Taylor Swift, Celine Dion, and Shawn Mendes have joined the One World: Together at Home event happening on Saturday.
The three stars will also be joined by Alicia Keys, Amy Poehler, Awkwafina, Camila Cabello, Ellen DeGeneres, Jennifer Lopez, LL Cool J, Lupita Nyong’o, Matthew McConaughey, Oprah Winfrey, Pharrell Williams, Sam Smith, Usher and Victoria Beckham for the charitable event.
One World: Together At Home is the first-of-its kind global broadcast event to celebrate the heroic efforts of community health workers, and to support the World Health Organization in the global fight to end COVID-19.
Curated by Lady Gaga, it will be hosted by Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel and Stephen Colbert.
The event has already raised more than $35 million to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. As Gaga explained last week, One World: Together at Home is not a traditional benefit concert: “We want to raise the money before we go on air. When we do go on air, put your wallets away, your credit cards away, and enjoy the show,” she explained during an at-home live stream.
Prior to the 8 p.m. broadcast on Saturday, a six-hour live stream will include appearances from Adam Lambert, Andra Day, Angèle, Anitta, Annie Lennox, Becky G, Ben Platt, Billy Ray Cyrus, Charlie Puth, Common, Connie Britton, Don Cheadle, FINNEAS, Heidi Klum, Hozier, Jack Black, Jason Segel, Jennifer Hudson, Jessie J, John Legend, Kesha, Lady Antebellum, Liam Payne, Michael Bublé, and tons more.
As part of One World: Together At Home, brands such as Analog Devices, Cisco, Citi, The Coca-Cola Company, GlaxoSmithKline, IBM, Johnson & Johnson, PepsiCo, Procter & Gamble, State Farm, Target, Teneo, Verizon, Vodafone and WW International, Inc. have supported the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for WHO and regional charities that are working to meet immediate COVID-19-related needs on a local level.
One World: Together at Home airs on ABC, NBC, ViacomCBS Networks, iHeartMedia and Bell Media networks and will stream on Alibaba, Amazon Prime Video, Apple, beIN Media Group, Facebook, Instagram, LiveXLive, Tencent, Tencent Music Entertainment Group, TIDAL, TuneIn, Twitch, Twitter, Yahoo and YouTube.

PINK COOKS UP SOUP TO FEED THE HUNGRY – (04/15/2020)
After recovering from her scary bout with COVID-19, Pink is giving back to those in need.
The singer posted on Instagram that she made a huge batch of soup to donate. She shared photos of the cooking process and the final products, all packaged and ready to go. She pointed out that she had mislabeled the soup containers with the wrong date, writing March instead of April. “I wrote 3/20 Because I lost a month somehow. Whoops,” she wrote.
Pink recently revealed that she and her son Jameson both contracted COVID-19.
“Two weeks ago my three-year-old son, Jameson, and I are were showing symptoms of COVID-19. Fortunately, our primary care physician had access to tests and I tested positive,” Pink wrote in an April 3rd Instagram post. “My family was already sheltering at home and we continued to do so for the last two weeks following the instruction of our doctor. Just a few days ago we were re-tested and are now thankfully negative.”
She also announced a $1 million donation, split between two COVID-19 relief charities in Philadelphia and Los Angeles.
Pink reflected on battling the virus, which has infected nearly 2 million people worldwide, during a virtual appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Thursday. “This is the scariest thing I’ve ever been through in my whole life,” she told DeGeneres through tears. “It really is just a rollercoaster.” “We are doing all right, we are doing okay this week,” Pink later added. “I don’t even know what day it is but this is a better week than the last.”
During an Instagram Live chat last week with her friend and author, Jen Pastiloff, Pink said that while she and Jameson both got sick, her husband, Carey Hart, and their 8-year-old daughter, Willow Sage, have been healthy.
