The special event will also feature stories from the world's healthcare heroes battling the spread of the coronavirus.

One World Together At Home will broadcast on RTE, April 19th.

It can also be streamed across multiple platforms including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Apple, YouTube and more.

Hugh Evans, Co-Founder and CEO of Global Citizen, said, 'As we honor and support the heroic efforts of community health workers, ‘One World: Together At Home,’ aims to serve as a source of unity and encouragement in the global fight to end COVID-19.'

'Through music, entertainment and impact, the global live-cast will celebrate those who risk their own health to safeguard everyone else’s.'

Gaga explained further, "We're gonna continue fundraising before the show."

"So when you guys introduce the whole special, you can tell everyone to put your wallets way, put your money away, we don't need it because we raised the money already."

"I'm very excited for them to just watch and enjoy the show."

It's all in aid of the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for WHO - check that out here.
