Elton John hosted "iHeart Living Room Concert for America" on Sunday, March 29 as a virtual benefit concert for those effected by COVID-19, coronavirus.

Top names in music joined in from quarantine to participate in the efforts to raise funds for two U.S. charities. The online performances featured Billie Eilish, Mariah Carey, the Backstreet Boys, Alicia Keys, Demi Lovato, and many more singing from home.

The donations for the iHeart Living Room Concert for America are to support Feeding America and First Responders Children's Foundation.

Pop legend, Elton John, hosted the event with the desire to show "compassion" and "decency."

"Not long ago, there was another infectious disease that was ignored," said John.

"Day in and day out, the disease got worse, because we did nothing. Too many forgot about compassion and decency, and so millions and millions of people perished from Aids.

"But this time, we aren't going to let that happen. So, stay home for the ones you love," John added, according to a report from BBC news.

More virtual concerts will continue this week to support the relief of first responders and those effected by the pandemic.
