Coronavirus: Elton, McCartney and Stevie Wonder set for fundraising gig

Sir Elton John, Sir Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder are among those set to perform in a live TV special, under the direction of Lady Gaga, to raise money to fight the coronavirus pandemic.

Lady Gaga and advocacy organisation Global Citizen have already raised $35million (£28m) in seven days, which will benefit the World Health Organization (WHO), the singer said on Monday.

Now, they have announced the "One World: Together At Home," event will be broadcast simultaneously on several networks, including NBC, on Saturday 18 April.

The TV special will also be streamed live on several social media platforms, including YouTube, Apple, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

During a news conference, Gaga said: "We want to highlight the gravity of this historical, unprecedented cultural movement, and we want to celebrate and encourage the power of the human spirit."
