Billie Eilish, Mariah Carey and Alicia Keys will play a benefit concert with a difference to raise funds for those facing hardship as coronavirus spreads.

The socially-distanced stars will sing live from their own living rooms in a one-hour charity special to be hosted by Sir Elton John on Sunday.

The following day, Eilish will appear alongside BTS, Dua Lipa and others on another televised fundraising show.

They will star on a special edition of James Corden’s Late Late Show.
