The Most Awe-Inspiring Performances From The ‘One World: Together At Home’ Concert

Everyone from Lady Gaga to Taylor Swift (to real medical workers across the globe)

In collaboration with Lady Gaga, Global Citizen, the World Health Organisation and more than 70 of the world’s most talented artists banded together to celebrate and support healthcare workers fighting against the coronavirus pandemic. Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel and Stephen Colbert hosted the virtual event, One World: Together At Home, which included performances and appearances from Taylor Swift, Elton John, Céline Dion, Jennifer Lopez, Paul McCartney and many more. 

The 8-hour special also featured communities impacted by COVID-19 across the world, and included conversations with — and tributes to — the political leaders, scientists, health care professionals, and other essential service workers on the frontlines.

Over $200 million (AUD) was raised, Lady Gaga announced following the special night. 

“I’m so grateful for the healthcare workers, the medical workers, all the grocery store workers and delivery people, the postal workers, all the other non-profits that are working so hard,” Gaga said. “This is really a true love letter to all of you all over the world, and I hope a reminder of the kindness that’s occurring right now.” 

In case you missed some of the incredible performances (or simply want to relive them), we’ve them up below. Scroll down to see the show-stopping performances from some of the world’s most popular entertainers. 

Céline Dion, Lady Gaga, John Legend & Andrea Bocelli

Céline Dion made a surprise appearance to perform ‘The Prayer’ during the One World: Together At Home special. The legendary singer was joined by her duet partner Andrea Bocelli, plus event curator Lady Gaga, John Legend, and pianist Lang Lang for the performance.

All of the entertainers filmed their portions from home and the videos were pieced together to create an incredible moment.

Keith Urban & Nicole Kidman

Keith Urban had a surprise guest during his One World: Stay at Home appearance – wife Nicole Kidman! The 52-year-old country singer appeared during the special to perform a cover of Steve Winwood‘s song ‘Higher Love’.

“To all of the healthcare workers, everyone on the front lines, and everyone behind the scenes, on behalf of Nic, our girls, and myself, all of us here we say thank you,” Keith says.

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift has said that she would likely never perform her song ‘Soon You’ll Get Better’, but she debuted the song with an emotional performance on the One World: Together At Home special.

The 30-year-old singer wrote the song about her mom Andrea Swift‘s battle with cancer and the song is on her latest album Lover.

“We as a family decided to put this on the album, and it’s something I’m so proud of, but it’s just really hard,” Taylor told fans back in August 2019. “I can’t sing it. It’s hard to just emotionally deal with that song.”

“It was hard to write, it’s hard to sing. It’s hard to listen to for me, but sometimes music is like that,” she added.


Lizzo performed a cover of Sam Cooke‘s song ‘A Change is Gonna Come’ for the One World: Together at Home special. 

Jennifer Lopez

J.Lo performed a cover of the song ‘People’, which Barbra Streisand famously originated in the musical Funny Girl.

“Thank you Global Citizen for having me be part of such a beautiful thing,” Jennifer said before performing. “You know there’s one thing that I realized more than anything during this whole time and it’s how much we all need each other.”

Jennifer wore a Coach sweatshirt with Barbra‘s face on it, which is still available
