Sir Elton John is inviting you into his home as he hosts some of the biggest talents for "iHeart Living Room Concert for America." Performing from their own living rooms, the impressive lineup includes Alicia Keys, Billie Eilish, The Backstreet Boys, Tim McGraw, Mariah Carey, and Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day. Most of these stars were in the middle of live world tours which have since been canceled or postponed due to COVID-19. Sunday's concert gives you access to these stars while staying socially distant and from the comfort of your own home.

"While we’ve all been in quarantine I’ve been reflecting on the things that matter the most in my life. Family, friends and of course music. I figure if we have to spend this time in isolation at least we can be alone together." — Billie Joe Armstrong
The "iHeart Living Room Concert for America" collaboration of these artists is dedicated to the doctors, nurses, and other health professionals, as well as the first responders (police officers, firefighters, and EMTs) who are tirelessly and selflessly working to care for the affected and put a stop to the spread of COVID-19.
