Billie Eilish, Mariah Carey and Alicia Keys will play a benefit concert with a difference to raise funds for those facing hardship as coronavirus spreads. Currently, some of the A-listers performing from their homes include Mariah Carey, Alicia Keys, Backstreet Boys, Billie Eilish, Billie Joe Armstrong, and Tim McGraw. From live stream concerts to fully-realized episodic IGTV shows, our faves like John Legend, Miley Cyrus and Jonathan Van Ness have been coming in clutch with the content.

The transfer of the residents is reportedly a temporary measure as the Emergency Military Unit is disinfecting the nursing home. In the capital Madrid, which has seen the highest number of cases and deaths, that could take up to 24 hours, officials said.

The iHeart Living Room Concert for America, is set to celebrate the health professionals and first responders battling the COVID-19 pandemic. The event will take the time slot that was to belong to the iHeartRadio Music Awards, which became part of a wave of public-event postponements and cancellations because of the pandemic.

The special will also pay tribute to the people on the frontlines during this hard time in order to fight the spread of COVID-19 - the health professionals, first responders and local heroes.

The iHeart Living Room Concert for America is set to air commercial-free on Sunday, March 29 at 9 p.m. and will also be available for simulcast on iHeart Media stations and its app nationwide. Those groups are Feeding America and First Responders Children's Foundation.
