Some of New Jersey's finest are teaming up to partake in Jersey 4 Jersey, a one-night broadcast that will raise funds for the Garden State's fight against COVID-19. 

Among the participating stars are Bruce Springsteen, Jon Bon Jovi, Tony Bennett, Jon Stewart, Danny DeVito, Whoopi Goldberg, Kelly Ripa, Halsey, SZA, Charlie Puth and Saquon Barkley.

The benefit for the New Jersey Pandemic Relief Fund will air nationally on Apple Music, Apple TV, SiriusXM's E Street Radio, as well as many local New Jersey, New York and Philadelphia TV and radio stations on April 22 at 7PM EST.  

“New Jersey is on the front lines of this pandemic, making it more important than ever for us to do what Jersey does best – take care of one another," shared New Jersey First Lady Tammy Murphy. "That’s why we’re asking everyone in our state to join the NJPRF and some of New Jersey’s finest for some much-needed musical entertainment, levity and Jersey Pride during these unprecedented times.”

Details have yet to be announced on whether the musicians are slated to perform or speak in support of NJPRF, which aids the fight against the medical, social and economic impact of the coronavirus on local communities.
