Fox and iHeartMedia announced Wednesday that Elton John will host a worldwide concert to raise funds for coronavirus relief.

Mariah Carey, Billie Eilish and Tim McGraw are just some of the music world's biggest stars planning to turn their homes into concert stages for a benefit this weekend on television and radio.

Digitally streamed performances have become a mainstay for artists during the COVID-19 pandemic and Elton John is no exception.

Samsung Galaxy A31 with Helio P65 and Quad Rear Cameras Announced
The Samsung Galaxy A31 is the newest smartphone from the South Korean company to become official. The Samsung Galaxy A31 is expected to replace the current mid-segment model Galaxy A30.

With forebears including the post-9/11 America: A Tribute to Heroes and the six-hour 12-12-12 Concert for Sandy Relief, the new special is executive produced by John Sykes and Tom Poleman for iHeartMedia and Tenth Planet Productions' Joel Gallen, who produced A Tribute to Heroes and the multi-network telethons immediately following Hurricane Katrina and the 2010 Haiti quake. It is set to air on both FOX and the iHeartMedia platforms Sunday, 29th March at 9pm EST - 11am (AEST).

Viewers will be encouraged to donate to Feeding America and the First Responders Children's Foundation as John and his famous friends belt out their hits. Some are being pre-recorded while the performances will be filming using cell phones or cameras. That's the original broadcast timeslot for the iHeartRadio Music Awards, which were postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Musicians have been quick to move online as USA states have issued shutdown and stay-at-home orders, with free performances filmed at home and streamed on social media from the likes of John Legend and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin.
