NEW YORK (AP) — An all-star event aimed at fighting the coronavirus pandemic is underway.

R&B singer Andra Day performed her inspirational anthem “Rise Up,” former One Direction member Niall Horan thanked health care workers and teachers, and pop star Kesha played piano while singing positive lyrics in the early moments of “One World: Together At Home."

Matthew McConaughey, Jack Black, Heidi Klum and others also made appearances in the first hour of the eight-hour event broken in two formats: A six-hour stream followed by a two-hour TV special at 8 p.m. EDT featuring Lady Gaga, The Rolling Stones, Billie Eilish and more.
