LONDON: British actress Jameela Jamil kicked off an eight-hour global event of music, comedy and personal stories aimed at bringing hope and unity during the coronavirus pandemic.
Pop and classical musicians from the United States, Asia and the Middle East, all performing from their homes, appeared on the “One World: Together at Home” live stream due to run for six hours to pay tribute to frontline workers battling the health crisis around the world.
Jamil, known for her TV series “The Good Place,” told viewers the event was meant to be “a moment of respite.”
“Put your wallets away. This is not a fundraiser. We are just here to give you an incredible show with amazing live performances,” she said.
