The event, set for May 1 will see global leaders, artists and entertainers such as Jennifer Garner, Deepak Chopra as they offer lessons, performances and conversations in support of those challenged by coronavirus.

Our world continues to suffer from the wrath of the novel coronavirus, with the illness continuing to affect thousands and the death toll rising. People around the world have offered positive vibes, love, and support to lighten the burden of the sad news that continues to pour out. Celebrities have taken to giving online concerts to raising millions to help support relief efforts. And it seems that compassion in this time of need is highly appreciated – by the people who are sick and those that are forced to be under quarantine lockdown.

Among a host of COVID-19 relief concerts being held is the global live stream of ‘The Call to Unite’ event that will bring together over 200 global leaders, artists, entertaining and community leaders. The event will see them perform, offer lessons and conversations that will help support people as they face umpteen amounts of challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The aim is to bring inspiration and encourage solidarity to help people come out of this intense crisis stronger and supported. The press release simply stated it’s the beautiful purpose as, “a celebration of those acts of humanity, and an invitation to the world to join in lifting one another in this moment of need. We need each other. Now more than ever.”
