With the iHeartRadio Music Awards postponed due to the coronavirus, iHeartMedia is instead hosting the benefit TV special, iHeart Living Room Concert for America.

Hosted by Elton John with Billie Eilish, Mariah Carey and Tim McGraw as its headliners, the event essentially follows the format of performance livestreams done by musicians practicing self-isolation. Other performers include Alicia Keys, Backstreet Boys and Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day.

The iHeart Living Room Concert for America will pay tribute to health workers and frontliners working around the clock to help contain the pandemic, and aims to urge viewers to donate to charities like Feeding America and the First Responders Children’s Foundation.

The iHeart Living Room Concert for America airs March 29 at 9 p.m. EST/6 p.m. PST on Fox, along with audio-only broadcasts on iHeartRadio stations.

In related news, take a listen to James Blake’s Radiohead cover of “No Surprises,” performed during one of his self-isolation livestream sessions.
