Celebrities paid tribute to the front-line workers and responders working to care for people affected by the coronavirus, according to a release from iHeartRadio.

In addition to Carey, Cabello and Eilish, stars who performed included Alicia Keys, Backstreet Boys, Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day, Dave Grohl, H.E.R., Tim McGraw and Sam Smith.

Since the beginning of the self-quarantines due to the coronavirus outbreak, stars have been entertaining fans with livestreamed performances.
Performers like John Legend, Coldplay’s Chris Martin and Death Cab for Cutie’s Ben Gibbard have even used the hashtag #TogetherAtHome to promote their streams to entertain millions stuck at home.
In addition, singer Lizzo has hosted livestreamed meditations, and actresses Amy Adams and Jennifer Garner kicked off an initiative to stream book readings for children to help parents.
