#Roommates, celebrities have been using their self-quarantine time to treat their fans to impromptu concerts from the comforts of their homes—and now the trend is set to continue with a new event on FOX. Elton John has been announced as the host for a special home concert featuring the likes of Mariah Carey, Alicia Keys and more famous names to aid in coronavirus relief.
According to @HollywoodReporter, FOX network is officially teaming with iHeartRadio for a timely form of entertainment as the world continues to deal with the impact of the crippling coronavirus. The two entertainment conglomerates are putting together a social-distancing-appropriate benefit concert to raise money for Feeding America and First Responders Children’s Foundation.
Elton John is set to host the one-hour event that air commercial-free on March 29th at 9PM on FOX. Currently, some of the A-listers that are set to perform from their homes, include Mariah Carey, Alicia Keys, Backstreet Boys, Billie Eilish, Billie Joe Armstrong and Tim McGraw. However, more celebrity performers are set to be announced in the coming days before the show airs.
In addition to airing on FOX, the concert special will also be available to view on all of the network’s digital platforms. In this current social-distancing era it’s important to still find ways to entertainment yourself to escape the sobering reality we’re all facing due to this crisis…even if it’s for a moment.
Roommates, what are your thoughts on this?
