Lady Gaga is curating a huge televised and streaming concert for Global Citizen titled One World: Together at Home to raise funds for the global pandemic which is being touted as the Coronavirus answer to Live AID. As of this writing the line up includes more than 40 performers such as Paul McCartney, the Rolling Stones, Elton John, Taylor Swift, Billie Ellis, Sam Smith, John Legend, Stevie Winder, Liza, Céline Dion, LL Cool J and Jennifer Lopez, among others with special appearances by Oprah Winfrey and Ellen DeGeneres.
It seems a new genre of music parody has come about through all the chaotic mess that is coronavirus.
