The iHeart Living Room Concert for America is set to air on FOX this Sunday, March 29 at 9p ET. The show will also be simulcast on iHeart radio stations across the country. The special will take over the time slot that was originally slated for this year's iHeart Music Awards show.

The artists already slated to appear include Alicia Keys, Backstreet Boys, Billie Eilish, Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong, Mariah Carey, and Tim McGraw. There are many more expected to be announced in the coming days.

Each act will perform from their own homes, and will be filmed with their personal video and audio equipment. The hour-long show will "pay tribute to the front line health professionals, first responders and local heroes who are putting their lives in harm’s way to help their neighbors and fight the spread of the virus," a representative for Fox said in a statement. The special will encourage its viewers to support the charitable organizations Feeding America and First Responders Children's Foundation.
