Elton John hosted a truly A-List celebrity concert from home, as the big names turned up, virtually, in force to put together this online concert.

Billie Eilish, Mariah Carey, Alicia Keys and Dave Grohl opened their doors — literally — as the musicians performed from their homes for an hour-long benefit concert to raise money for those affected by the coronavirus crisis.

Elton John sang and also hosted the special that aired on Fox and iHeartMedia radio stations; he said he hoped “this entertainment will feed and fuel your soul.”

The five members of the Backstreet Boys performed from separate locations to sing their classic hit, “I Want It That Way.” And Demi Lovato sang her emotional song “Skyscraper” while playing piano.

Lady Gaga, Lizzo, Melissa McCarthy, Ryan Seacrest, Ken Jeong and others made special appearances, thanking first responders and telling viewers to practice safe habits like hand-washing and staying home.
