"It has been an honor to partner with Global Citizen over the past several weeks as we’ve been working together behind the scenes to raise money for the World Health Organization (WHO) COVID19 Solidarity Response Fund. And it continues to blow my mind to watch the triumphant bravery of healthcare professionals and others working tirelessly to do their part.

"The Solidarity Response Fund allows the WHO to continue to track and understand the spread of the virus, to ensure patients get the care they need and frontline workers get essential supplies and information, and helps accelerate efforts to develop vaccines, tests, and treatments.

"7 days ago we held a call with more than 68 corporate leaders from some of the world's largest companies. I asked them to join my Corporate Kindness list, and in just a week, we have raised over $35 million. This money will go towards essential PPE supplies and testing kits around the world and will help improve lab capacity to rapidly process tests.

"It is so important to think globally and to support the World Health Organization to curb the pandemic and prevent future outbreaks. Also crucial is the need to act locally as well by supporting local charities and initiatives so communities and the most vulnerable have the resources they need at this time.

"In addition to fundraising, we’ve been working on One World: #TogetherAtHome. It is an honor to help curate this huge broadcast event, which will take place on April 18. I'll also be performing. We want to celebrate and highlight the singular kind global community and celebrate the power of the human spirit. https://glblctzn.me/2xFbpj8

"We are going to continue fundraising, and I want to let you know now… this broadcast is not a fundraiser. We will raise the money before we go on air, so when we do go live, put your wallets away and sit back and enjoy the show that you all very much deserve. I love you all."
