Mike Ong, Vice President of BIGO Technology said "The 'Global BIGOer One World 
Together' fundraiser aims to rally and unite the community as one through the 
power of music. As a global platform that connects and brings people together, 
the campaign is aimed at fostering solidarity on a global scale for a very 
important cause. In collaboration with Bigo Live broadcasters, we hope to bring 
the community together to lend our support to frontline healthcare 
professionals and communities most in need during the COVID-19 pandemic."

A music video showcasing solidarity was put together by over 100 broadcasters 
from over 20 countries performing a cover of the Michael Jackson hit "We Are 
The World". It will be released on 12 May 2020 across all Bigo Live social 
media channels.

The main event is a 24-hour music livehouse on Bigo Live that will take place 
on 14 May 2020, starting at 1:00am GMT +9. The music livehouse - a single 
'room' on Bigo Live that will host the performances - will showcase 
broadcasters from around the world streaming right from their own homes or 
studios. Viewers will be able to engage and chat with the broadcasters as well 
as the community using the various features on the app. Viewers are encouraged 
to donate generously towards the fundraising efforts via the Bigo Live app.

Since the start of the outbreak, Bigo Live has launched a series of curated 
content by broadcasters around the world to bring comfort and happiness during 
these trying times. This included a #STAYATBIGO campaign which had sharing 
sessions with healthcare professionals, performances by local music DJs and 
workouts by fitness enthusiasts to help local communities stay fit and healthy 
at home. They have also been the first to bring cloud clubbing as a form of 
entertainment to communities in Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand.

"The fight against COVID-19 is a long and arduous one. As with previous 
campaigns over the past few months, we hope that the Global BIGOer One World 
Together campaign will help bring people together and show our solidarity 
towards frontline professionals, while also being able to spread some joy and 
cheer," Mike added.

Viewers can expect to see popular broadcasters from Asia Pacific like "Yuri" 
from Japan, "Hwaiting" from Korea perform in-app between 5:00pm, GMT +9 to 
11.30pm, GMT +9.
