David Guetta has announced he’ll be hosting a livestream performance this coming Saturday, May 30th in New York to raise spirits and money for the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City, Feeding America, the World Health Organization, and Fondation Hôpitaux de Paris – Hôpitaux de France.
Guetta’s performance will take place at one of New York City’s most iconic locations, to be revealed during his set. United At Home, conceived and co-produced by the Charity Guys, aims to put a smile on the faces of New York and the rest of the world through the power of music.
Guetta’s performance will begin after New York’s “daily clap” for frontline and healthcare workers at 7:00 pm (EST), and can be viewed live on social media through the DJ’s Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Twitter, Twitch, VK and TikTok channels. The stream will feature guest appearances from City First Responders along with other special surprise guests. New Yorkers are encouraged to join Guetta’s global audience and watch this performance safely from home. Moreover, the set can only be enjoyed online; it will not be amplified.
“I’m excited to announce I will host another live stream to raise money for charity and help battle the virus,” says David Guetta. “New York is one of my favorite cities and it’s an honor to be able to do something to help the city during this difficult time. We’re planning something special that can be enjoyed from homes around the world. As a DJ, the crowd is the most important part of any show and even though we can’t be together in a club or at a festival, we can use this time to come together in new ways and help those who need it most.”
“Our city’s healthcare workers are first responders in the fight against coronavirus. As New Yorkers have stepped back and stayed home, our doctors, nurses and hospital staff have stepped forward to work around the clock to save lives,” said First Lady Chirlane McCray. “I thank David Guetta for his partnership to help the city continue to raise funds for PPE and other critical supplies to protect our healthcare heroes during this public health crisis.”
Funds raised by the performance will be donated to the following organizations:
- The Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City, chaired by First Lady Chirlane McCray, is NYC’s official fundraising arm for COVID-19 relief and is working every day to support vulnerable populations including frontline health care workers and essential staff, immigrant communities, domestic violence survivors, and others. Guetta’s United At Home initiative will also continue to benefit
- Feeding America, the nation’s largest hunger-relief organization
- Fondation Hôpitaux de Paris – Hôpitaux de France, whose mission is to improve the conditions of healthcare works and patients in hospitals across France; and
- The World Health Organization’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund, which is ensuring frontline workers are equipped with essential protective wear, patients are receiving proper care, and efforts to develop vaccines, tests, and treatments are accelerated.
