“Some of music’s biggest stars are inviting you into their homes for a special one-hour event to help support relief for all of the first responders and everyone else who has been risking their lives every day in the fight against the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) and the victims of its rippling effects,” explain iHeartRadio.
“The special will also pay tribute to the people on the frontlines during this difficult time in order to fight the spread of COVID-19 – the health professionals, first responders and local heroes. In addition to the musical performances, viewers can support two of many charitable organizations that are helping victims and first responders during this pandemic – Feeding America and First Responders Children’s Foundation.”
You can tune in via FOX, as well as listening on iHeartMedia radio stations in the States, and via the iHeartRadio app.
