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.
