More than 8 million viewers tuned in to watch the March 29 event. The concert featured remote performances from superstar entertainers like Alicia Keys, Billie Joe Armstrong and Sam Smith. Even the Backstreet Boys managed to pull off a social-distanced rendition of their 1999 staple, “I Want It That Way.”

“Our goal from the start was to ‘do good’ at a tough time in the world. And that we were able to accomplish anything of that sort is because of the amazing artists who participated in this event, our producing partners, iHeart Media, and the outpouring of support from our employees, viewers and corporate partners,” said Charlie Collier, CEO, FOX Entertainment.
