Some of New Jersey's biggest stars will join together live on Wednesday, April 22 at 7pm ET to bring some entertainment into everyone's homes while raising money to help fight the coronavirus epidemic. The hour long special will also honor healthcare workers, first responders, other essential employees and help to remind everyone the steps we all should be taking to help fight this pandemic.
"These are uncertain times," said Springsteen in the launch video. "What is for certain, is the pain, the fear and the real needs of many of our neighbors, our friends and certainly all of those who are on the front lines of this pandemic."
The hour long event will host performances from Bruce Springsteen, Jon Bon Jovi, Halsey, Tony Bennett, Charlie Puth, Fountains of Wayne and SZA. Among the celebrities taking part are Danny DeVito, Chris Rock, Kelly Ripa, Saquon Barkley, Whoopi Goldberg, Chelsea Handler and Jon Stewart.
