As the world unites to fight Covid-19, TimesLIVE will run a live stream of Global Citizen’s historic One World: Together at Home relief concert.
The special, in support of healthcare workers fighting the Covid-19 pandemic globally and the World Health Organisation’s Covid-19 Solidarity Response Fund, will air at 8 pm this Saturday, April 18.
Having already launched the popular United Apart SA campaign, encouraging South Africans to band together and share their experiences during the lockdown, TimesLIVE will be doing its part by running a live stream of the Global Citizen concert for its readers right here on this page.
The show can also be watched on Vuzu Domestic and Vuzu Africa (DSTV channel 116), and online on DStv Now and Showmax.
Four South Africans are in the line-up: Black Coffee, Cassper Nyovest, Sho Madjozi and Nomzamo Mbatha.
Proceeds from the show will go to equipping healthcare workers with protective equipment and charities providing food, shelter and other necessities to those in need.
“As we honour 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,” Global Citizen chief executive Hugh Evan said in a statement.
Last month TimesLIVE launched United Apart SA, encouraging citizens to share videos, voice notes and messages of their activities during the lockdown.
Entries have been coming in, showing that while we are apart, in a world intricately connected by technology and social media, we’re truly in this together.
