NEW YORK (AP) — Through music, Lady Gaga told those stressing during the coronavirus pandemic to smile and Stevie Wonder encouraged viewers to lean on one another.

The A-listers kicked off Saturday’s two-hour TV special “One World: Together At Home,” an all-star event aimed at fighting the coronavirus and celebrating health care workers on the front lines.

Gaga curated the event supporting the World Health Organization alongside advocacy organization Global Citizen.

She performed Nat King Cole’s version of the classic song “Smile.” Wonder performed “Lean On Me” by Bill Withers, who died on March 30, while playing piano.
