Together at Home Artists in “One World” Virtual Concert

The “Together at Home” series of streamed-from-home concerts initialized by Coldplay’s Chris Martin will be levelling up with a “One World” event.

Slated to take place on Saturday, April 18, 2020, is a multi-hour special that artists will stream live at leading social media platforms, several cable networks and other streaming services working in collaboration with the advocacy organization Global Citizen.

The “One World” virtual music event is not intended as a fund raising program but as a token of appreciation for all those who helped Global Citizen raise as much as USD35 million for the “COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund” set up by the World Health Organization (WHO).

Lady Gaga, who is a major supporter of Global Citizen’s fundraising efforts for the WHO’s Covid-19 Solidarity Fund has been tapped to help curate the streamed-from-home special concerts. Her tasks include presenting information about the “One World Together at Home” event.

In last Monday’s press conference, she explained that it is their way of highlighting the extreme importance of an unprecedented, historical cultural movement, as well as to encourage and celebrate the power of the human spirit. Her advice to viewers is to

“Put your wallets away”—“Sit back and enjoy the show you all deserve.”

With a huge musical event like the “One World,” don’t you just wish your audio system is outfitted with a speaker that can project not only super quality sound, but also capable of producing a wide range of frequencies?

In case you intend to order one online before the big music event takes place, we recommend for you to choose powerful tower speakers. That way, your audio system will be able to deliver clear mid to high sounds with more oomph.
