ONE Championship, dubbed "Asia’s leading sports media property", has partnered with Global Citizen to produce a "no-contact" livestream concert called "One World: Together At Home", offering one more reason for people around the world to contribute to the fight against the pandemic by staying at home
The eight-hour free "music special" also aims to raise funds for the COVID-Solidarity Response Fund of the World Health Organization (WHO) through a new merchandise store, ONE.SHOP, with 10 percent of net proceeds to be donated to the global health fund.
The concert will be live streamed globally on ONE Championship’s Facebook page and ONE Super App on Sunday, April 19, at 2 a.m. Singapore Time, or 1 a.m. Western Indonesia Time (WIB). The recorded concert will then be replayed for 24 hours after the live stream on the sports promoter's Facebook page and bespoke app, as well as its YouTube channel and Twitter account (@ONEChampionship).
Hosted by popular late-night show hosts Jimmy Fallon, Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel, the special will be featuring big names and legends spanning all musical genres like Alicia Keys, Andrea Bocelli, Billie Eilish, Billie Joe Amstrong of Green Day, Celine Dion, Chris Martin, Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam, Elton John, Jennifer Lopez, John Legend, Paul McCartney, Pharrell Williams and Sam Smith.
It will also feature appearances by stars such as Ellen Degeneres and Oprah Winfrey, as well as Idris Elba, Kerry Washington, Lupita Nyong’o, Matthew McConaughey, Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Shah Rukh Khan.
Aside from the star-studded special, ONE Championship's own superstar fighters will take part in the show, with Aung La N Sang, Angela Lee Brandon Vera, Demetrious Johnson, Martin Nguyen and others sharing their "at home" workouts and answering questions from fans.
