Watch Billie Ellish, Billy Rae Cyrus and other live performances online as part of Global Citizen's live streamed intuitive to raise funds for global response efforts during COVID-19.

The advocacy organization announced Friday that the Rolling Stones will appear Saturday on “One World: Together At Home,” a two-hour televised event that will air at 8 p.m. EDT (5 p.m. PST) simultaneously on ABC, NBC, CBS, iHeartMedia and Bell Media networks.

Prior to the event, watch live-streamed performances from musicians through YouTube and other social media platforms.

The Lady Gaga-curated event supports The World Health Organization and will include appearances by Oprah Winfrey, Taylor Swift, Elton John, Jennifer Lopez, David and Victoria Beckham, Alicia Keys, Ellen DeGeneres, Pharrell Williams, Eddie Vedder, Kerry Washington, Coldplay’s Chris Martin, Celine Dion, Lizzo, J Balvin and Andrea Bocelli. Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel will host the all-star event, which will also highlight those affected by the virus and celebrate health care workers on the front lines.
