The "IHeart Living Room Concert for America" will also feature performances from Alicia Keys, Backstreet Boys, and Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong.

Oscar victor Elton John is partnering with Fox and iHeartMedia to host Fox Presents The iHeart Living Room Concert for America, an hourlong special looking to help put a dent in the global coronavirus relief effort, according to Deadline. It'll air on both FOX and the iHeartMedia platforms Sunday, 29th March at 9pm EST - 11am (AEST).

The socially-distanced stars will sing live from their own living rooms in a one-hour charity special to be hosted by Sir Elton John on Sunday.

And don't worry: The artists are all practicing social distancing. The performances will be filmed with their personal cell phones, cameras and audio equipment, to ensure the health and safety of all involved.

The broadcast will be encouraging viewers to donate to Feeding America and First Responders Children's Foundation if they aren't sure who to help out.

It's called the iHeart Living Room Concert For America, replacing the 2020 iHeartRadio Music Awards, which have been postponed.

Along with providing entertainment, relief and support for Americans to help fight the spread of COVID-19, the producers say the event will celebrate the resilience and strength of the nation during this pandemic.

The event also plans to pay tribute to health professionals and first responders who are on the front lines battling the coronavirus. So there's no shortage of ways to tune in.
