Some of the biggest acts to ever appear in the BBC1 Live Lounge stage have collaborated in a new charity single for WHO’s COVID-19-Solidarity Response Fund. 

Musicians including Coldplay's Chris Martin, Jess Glynne, Rita Ora, Ellie Goulding, Dua Lipa, and more recorded a special cover of Foo Fighters’ ‘Times Like These’ as part of the newly set up 'Stay Home Live Lounge'.

The reformated version of the iconic 'BBC1 Live Lounge' brought together some of the world's biggest artists to perform from their own homes.
