SuperM to perform during ‘One World: Together At Home’ concert
It will be the only Korean act performing at the event, according to SM Entertainment.
The concert is being organized by the Oscar-winning singer, the World Health Organization (WHO) and Global Citizen to raise awareness and to celebrate healthcare workers globally on the frontlines of the coronavirus pandemic.
The concert is not a fundraiser, as the singer has already secured $35 million in donations for the WHO’s Covid-19 Solidarity Response Fund.
It is instead an initiative to “tell the stories and celebrate the frontline communities, healthcare workers and their acts of kindness,” according to the singer at a press event on April 6.
Performers and celebrities taking part in the two-hour event include Taylor Swift, Camila Cabello, Elton John, Jennifer Lopez, Billie Eilish, John Legend, Celine Dion, Pharrell Williams, Stevie Wonder, Jessie J, Oprah Winfrey, Samuel L. Jackson, David Beckham and Jack Black.
Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel and Stephen Colbert will host the event.
The concert will be aired by ABC, NBC, CBS and iHeartMedia and can be livestreamed on YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and Amazon Prime Video.
