Elton John, Billie Eilish, Alicia Keys to give COVID-19 benefit concert

Los Angeles, Mar 25 (efe-epa).- Pop icon Elton John on Sunday will offer a concert broadcast on television to collect money for charitable organizations, a show that will feature other artists like Alicia Keys, Billie Eilish and Mariah Carey performing from their homes via live feed to help alleviate the coronavirus crisis.

The Backstreet Boys, Billie Joe Armstrong and Tim McGraw are rounding out the initial list of musicians who have confirmed their participation at a gala that will be broadcast on the same day that the first awards of the season – the now-cancelled iHeartRadio Music Awards – were to have been held, as announced on Wednesday by the Fox news network.

All the artists who will participate in the benefit concert will do so from their homes and they will do their recording with their own equipment, following the social distancing recommendations imposed by the authorities with an eye toward limiting the spread of the sometimes deadly Covid-19 pneumonia caused by the coronavirus, the network said.

The funds collected will be funneled to two organizations – Feeding America and First Responders Children’s Foundation – which are working to get food to the most disadvantaged families in the US, many of whom depend on school cafeterias for their children’s nutrition but who can’t count on that source now that schools have been closed because of the coronavirus epidemic.

The concert will be viewable on “streaming” platforms after its television broadcast.
