A host of stars including Spike Lee, Mariah Carey and Robert
De Niro will feature in a telethon to raise money for New Yorkers whose lives
have been impacted by the novel coronavirus, organizers announced Monday.
The hour-long event, organized by the anti-poverty charity
Robin Hood and media group iHeartRadio, will be hosted by comedic actress and
producer Tina Fey on May 11.
The show will air on New York City television and radio
stations and will feature performances from artists Bon Jovi, Billy Joel and
Jennifer Lopez, Barbra Streisand, "Hamilton” musical creator
Lin-Manuel Miranda and "The Daily Show” host Trevor Noah will also appear,
Robin Hood and iHeartRadio said in a joint statement.
Donations will help provide support such as food, shelter,
money, and health and education services, the statement added.
It comes after 200 celebrities and politicians participated
in a 24-hour long "Call to Unite” livestream event on Friday to encourage
donating to COVID-19 relief efforts.
Last month, more than 270 million people worldwide watched a
star-studded marathon special to celebrate essential workers that featured
headliners The Rolling Stones and Taylor Swift performing from their homes.
