In times of difficulties, music and art can be a powerful force in uplifting our spirits and giving us hope, and the upcoming iHeart Living Room Concert For America aims to do just that, plus raise much-needed resources to those on the frontline fighting Coronavirus (COVID-19). Hosted by Sir Elton John, the "Living Room Concert for America" will support Feeding America and First Responders Children's Foundation. But if you don't have a TV handy (or are fighting your family members for control of the remote), you can listen to the concert on iHeartMedia stations or stream it on the iHeartRadio Music app. However, he had no choice but to cancel due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

To extend the reach of the commercial-free special's charitable component, FOX will offer the event across all of its linear and digital platforms.

Meanwhile, Diplo will also deliver a Major Lazer DJ set on the group's YouTube page from 4 p.m. EST, and singer Jack Johnson will front the Global Citizen and World Health Organization's virtual concert series, Together, at Home on his Instagram Live account from 6 p.m. EST.

In addition, Demi Lovato and Lizzo as well as Ciara and Russell Wilson are scheduled to pay tribute to healthcare professionals and local heroes who are working to fight the spread of the virus.
