While we're all stuck inside doing our part to flatten the curve of COVID-19, it's nice that the celebs we look to for a little levity are more willing than ever to entertain. From live stream concerts to fully-realized episodic IGTV shows, our faves like John Legend, Miley Cyrus and Jonathan Van Ness have been coming in clutch with the content. Now Elton John has pulled up on the scene and he's taking it one step further—a full benefit concert featuring the likes of Mariah Carey, Billie Eilish and Alicia Keys.The iHeart Living Room Concert for America will air Sunday night on MUCH with an hour of performances from some of music's greatest talents, all calling in remotely from their living rooms (because physical distancing). The festivities will be hosted by the king of concert benefits, Sir Elton John, and encourage viewers to donate to the Canadian Red Cross.It seems the concert will be similar in structure to the revival of Rosie O'Donnell's show last Sunday where she welcomed dozens of Broadway performers to sing and play music to their webcams in support of The Actors Fund. Viewers could watch via YouTube and the show raised $600,000 for actors who are missing out on work while productions and performances are shut down.[video_embed id='1927603']RELATED: Ryan Reynolds, Seth Rogen join PM Trudeau’s efforts to flatten the curve[/video_embed]More performers for the Living Room Concert will be announced in the coming days, but artists currently confirmed include: Mariah Carey, Alisha Keys, Billie Eilish, The Backstreet Boys, Green Day's Billie Joel Armstrong and Tim McGraw. Yes, we're excited for another A-list livestream but we're probably equally as excited to see what Mariah Carey's living room looks like. Or at least one of them.Most importantly, the night will feature a tribute to the real heroes of this pandemic: the doctors, nurses, first responders, grocery store workers, delivery drivers and others who risk their health every day while others stay at home to curb the spread and continue to support those front-line workers as well as victims of COVID-19 and people facing financial obstacles in its wake.The one-hour live special will be airing, commercial-free, on MUCH on Sunday at 9pE/6pPT.[video_embed id='1928178']RELATED: Prince Charles tested positive for COVID-19[/video_embed]
