American pop queen Lady Gaga collaborated with Global Citizen in the creation of a stay-at-home concert series to promote the practice of social distancing and to thank healthcare professionals. On April 18, One World: Together at Home became available over online stream and television. Among the performers were Hong Kong singers Jacky Cheung 張學友 and Eason Chan 陳奕迅.

When they made their appearances, both were introduced as representatives from China. Jacky began with a short message in Mandarin, "Hello everyone, if you are staying home and have some free time, let's sing together. Hopefully the pandemic will be over soon," before singing the English song Touch of Love.

As for Eason, who appeared in a later segment, he addressed the audience in Cantonese, Mandarin, and English, thanking healthcare professionals for their selfless devotion: "I want to take this opportunity to thank all the medical staff all around the world for your kindness, your greatest effort and love. Thank you." He then sang the classic I Have Nothing 我什麼都沒有 while playing the guitar.
