Following a number of live-stream concerts that took place last week, a new slate of performers continue to live-stream shows from their homes this week.

A number of musicians have teamed with the World Health Organization to put on the concerts. In addition to keeping fans stuck at home entertained, the stars are urging people to support the organization's fund to respond to the coronavirus pandemic.

Anne-Marie kicked off Wednesday's shows with a performance on her Instagram Live at 11 a.m. PT. Jojo followed with a concert on her Instagram Live at 12 p.m.

Jennifer Hudson also put on a live-stream concert on her Instagram account at 1 p.m. Fans were able to text Hudson at 312-584-4141 to request songs and learn more about how they can help Global Citizen's campaign in support of the WHO's Solidarity Response Fund.

Sofi Tukker also performed on their Instagram Live at 1 p.m., followed by H.E.R.'s performance at 2 p.m. Bush put on a show on their Instagram Live at 2:30 p.m., while Kirk Franklin performed at 3:30 p.m. and Guy Sebastian went live on Instagram at 6 p.m.

Coldplay frontman Chris Martin kicked off the initiative March 16 when he announced that he would perform some music for anyone wanting to tune in via an Instagram live stream.

Others who have participated in the initiative include Niall Horan, Common, Julianne Hough, Hozier, OneRepublic, Celeste, Rufus Wainwright, Lindsey Stirling, Juanes, Charlie Puth, Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes.

Global Citizen coordinated the concert live streams with the intent to unite people in the fight against the novel coronavirus, given many people may feel isolated while staying at home.

The organization launched an urgent campaign in support of WHO's new Solidarity Response Fund. WHO estimates it needs $675 million through April for COVID-19 preparedness and response efforts. Through the campaign, people are encouraged to take action and call on world leaders to support the fund.
