Singapore-based martial arts organization ONE Championship announced on April 16, 2020 a collaboration with Stefani Joanne Angelina “Lady Gaga” Germanotta, 34, international advocacy organization Global Citizen and the World Health Organization (WHO). The project is titled “One World: Together At Home,” a globally televised and streamed special in support of the fight against the new coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Curated in collaboration with Lady Gaga, the “One World: Together At Home” broadcast special will air on ONE Championship’s official Facebook Page and on the ONE Super App on April 18, 2020 beginning at 11 a.m. PDT/2:00 p.m. EDT for the six-hour streamed event, leading up to the global broadcast special which takes place at 5:00 p.m. PDT/8:00 p.m. EDT. Global Citizen and the WHO launched it to show unity among all people who are affected by COVID-19 and to celebrate and support brave healthcare workers doing life-saving work on the front lines.
“The world is traversing through challenging and difficult times,” ONE Championship chairman and CEO Chatri Sityodtong stated. “The ‘One World: Together At Home’ global special presents an opportunity for people all over the world to unite in celebration of humanity, and to come together as one to fight COVID-19. Tune in to this once-in-a-lifetime event featuring the world’s biggest stars.”
“One World: Together At Home” is not a telethon but a historic, first-of-its-kind global broadcast event to celebrate the heroic efforts of community health workers and to support the WHO in the global fight to end COVID-19. The broadcast will feature stories from frontline healthcare workers on the COVID response, commitments from philanthropists, governments and corporations to support and equip frontline healthcare workers around the world, with masks, gowns and other vital equipment and to local charities that provide food, shelter, and healthcare to those that need it most.
“We are also currently working with Global Citizen to provide fans with ONE Championship’s own series of unique #TogetherAtHome online content, encouraging people to stay active and igniting their spirits,” Chatri announced. “I am proud to be part of such a critical movement that aims to heal the world and flatten the curve.”
“It is always a privilege and honor to work alongside Global Citizen, especially now during this global situation where we can all truly make a difference,” the ONE Championship head continued. “As the world’s largest martial arts organization, ONE Championship will help to ease the burden of life indoors. We hope you all enjoy the time with our ONE Championship superstars.”
