Global Citizen has announced a second round of artists for its “One World: Together At Home” global broadcast Saturday night, with Taylor Swift, Celine Dion, Shawn Mendes, Camila Cabello, Jennifer Lopez, Alicia Keys, Sam Smith, Usher and Pharrell Williams among the musicians newly set to join the telecast.
Other personalities coming on board include Oprah Winfrey, Ellen DeGeneres, Awkwafina, Amy Poehler, LL Cool J, Lupita Nyong’o, Matthew McConaughey and Victoria Beckham.

As previously announced, the primary telecast, which begins at 8 p.m. ET/5 PT, will be co-hosted by Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon and air on NBC, CBS, ABC, ViacomCBS Networks, The CW, iHeartMedia, Bell Media, AXS TV, beIN Media Group, MultiChoice Group, RTE, the BBC and most digital music platforms.

Subban, Picture This, Rita Ora, Samuel L. Jackson, Sarah Jessica Parker, Sebastián Yatra, Sho Madjozi, SOFI TUKKER, SuperM, The Killers, Tim Gunn, Vishal Mishra and Zucchero.
The two events are not a telethon, the org emphasizes — Lady Gaga has already joined with Global Citizen to raise tens of millions of dollars prior to the event — but is intended to “celebrate the heroic efforts of community health workers, and to support the World Health Organization in the global fight to end COVID-19.”
Brands participating in the campaign include Analog Devices, Cisco, Citi, the Coca-Cola Company, GlaxoSmithKline, IBM, Johnson & Johnson, PepsiCo, Procter & Gamble, State Farm, Target, Teneo, Verizon, Vodafone and WW International, Inc.
The six-hour digital stream pre-telecast show will begin at 2 p.m. ET, 11 a.m. PT.
