WATCH: global music stars join Elton John for Covid-19 fundraising concert

Hosted by Elton John, Fox’s ‘iHeart Living Room Concert for America’ took place last night and featured some incredible performances – here are our favourites


Some of the world’s biggest music stars took to the small screen in the US last night for a very special fundraising concert.

Fox’s iHeart Living Room Concert for America was televised last night to raise much-needed funds for American food banks and for the children of first responders during the Covid-19 outbreak. Celebrities such as Billie Eilish and Sam Smith took part in the televised event which was hosted by music legend Elton John.

Beginning the show, the British singer said, “Here we are, all together at home. You’ve got your family and loved ones and I’m keeping mine close, too.

“We’re taking care of each other, looking out for each other, doing what we can during this crisis… There’s a lot of grief out there, uncertainty and fear. But let me tell you what’s going to keep us together. All the goodness that’s happening in the world.”

Standout performances

Some of the standout performances included the Backstreet Boys singing a social distancing version of their hit I Want It That Way and Mariah Carey’s rendition of Always Be My Baby, complete with backing singers.

However, the best performance of the night came from a frontline worker who is currently working morning-to-night trying to fight this virus. Dr Elvis Francois, a resident at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, performed an incredible cover of Imagine by John Lennon alongside Dr William Robinson on the piano.

It is goosebump-inducing.
