Elton John is set to host a coronavirus relief concert featuring Mariah Carey, Alicia Keys, and Billie Eilish.

The rock legend will front Fox Presents the iHeart Living Room Concert for America on March 29, 2020 – the same day the canceled iHeartRadio Music Awards were set to be broadcast.

Backstreet Boys, Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong, and Tim McGraw will also be a part of the big event, which will feature all the musicians performing from the comfort of their own homes, using video and audio equipment.

According to a representative for the Fox network, the hour-long gig will “pay tribute to the front line health professionals, first responders and local heroes who are putting their lives in harm’s way to help their neighbors and fight the spread of the virus.”

Viewers will be encouraged to donate to Feeding America and the First Responders Children’s Foundation as Elton and his famous friends belt out their hits.
