Motown legend Stevie Wonder will join Paul McCartney, Elton John, Lady Gaga, Billie Eilish and more as part of "One World: Together At Home," the latest celebrity entertainment and fundraising effort for novel coronavirus pandemic relief.

The show will air at 8 p.m. April 18 across a variety of networks and online outlets, raising money for the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund run by the UN Foundation to support and equip healthcare workers around the world as well as local charities that provide food, shelter and health care to shoe in need. It will be the largest so far in a series of similar benefits that have aired recently on Fox and NBC.

It will be one of Wonder's first public appearances since undergoing a kidney transplant last fall.

The "One World" lineup was curated by Lady Gaga in conjunction with the Wolrd Health Organization and Global Citizen, and late-night TV personalities Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel and Stephen Colbert. The special will be aired on NBC, ABC and CBS and their attendant other platforms, along with BBC One, Disney, Bravo, E!, Syfy, USA, Freeform, Nat Geo, BET, MTV and MTV2, VH1, CMT, Comedy Central, Logo, Paramount Network, Pop, TV Land and others.
