Billie Eilish, BTS and Mariah Carey to perform at virtual benefit concerts hosted by Elton John and James Corden

Elton John and James Corden are each to host virtual mega-performances in aid of food and health charities.

In an effort to lift spirits and raise cash for some deserving charities, some of the world’s biggest performers are taking to the (virtual) stage this upcoming Sunday and Monday night. 

In the wake of international lockdown and following suit of the countless daily live stream concerts being undertaken by artists recently, musical icon Elton John and actor-turned-presenter James Corden have each organised a jam-packed programme of musical performances to be broadcast live from artists’ homes.
