Celebrities around the world are coming together to help raise funds for COVID-19 relief efforts and to encourage us all to dream.
OHM Live, a 24-hour livestream event that kicks off on May 29 at 20:00 GST (16:00 GMT), will feature the likes of Dua Lipa along with 150 other global stars, aiming to unite the world through the power of dreams.
This amazing line-up of icons from the worlds of music, sport, film, art, fashion, health and wellness are coming together to reignite the power of dreaming and unite the world with messages of unity, hope and positivity at a time when it is needed most.
The most recent additions to the lineup include mental health activist and singer Jewel, five-time Grammy award-winner CeeLo Green, Colombian superstar Maluma, and speaker, writer and alternative medicine advocate Deepak Chopra.
The aim of the event is to raise funds for international COVID-19 relief as well as make the banner ‘dream with us’ a reality by trying to inspire real-time engagement from viewers as they try to collect a billion dreams.
The livestream can be viewed on a number of platforms including YouTube, Facebook, IGTV, TikTok and ohm.constellation.art, as well as on a few major TV networks. The programme has been carefully devised to feature major stars from each region at peak hours to ensure you don’t miss your favourite celebrity!
The Middle East will feature exclusive content from Ragheb Alama, Nadine Labaki and DJ Bliss. In the Indian subcontinent, the schedule will feature contributions from Karan Johar, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, Mallika Dua, Mahira Khan and Ali Zafar, along with a special segment with Amanda Cerny and Jacqueline Fernandez.
Europe’s segment is packed with Spanish and French stars, including actors Esther Acebo, Najwa Nimri and Enrique Arce from the Emmy-award winning show ‘La Casa de Papel’, Álvaro Rico from the Netflix series ‘Elite’, voice of the Gypsy Kings Nicholas Reyes, dancer Haspop, Mamadou Sakho, and Lorena Bernal along with her football coach husband Mikel Arteta, who overcame COVID-19 himself earlier this year. Italy will be represented by multi-Grammy award-winning singer Laura Pausini, while from the UK and Ireland, there are performances by Ronan Keating, Pixie Lott and Alexandra Burke, plus an in-depth interview with Dua Lipa.
Moving into the Americas, Jason Derulo tops out a US bill that includes the aforementioned Jewel, CeeLo Green and Deepak Chopra, as well as Becky G, Macy Gray, Sheila E and Nicky Jam.

In Latin America, superstars such as Maluma, Miguel Bosé, Carlos Rivera, Jencarlos, Belinda, Karol Sevilla, Natalia Jimenez and boyband CNCO are all part of a truly unforgettable schedule.
To ensure the maximum reach and impact of the event, OHM Live’s organisers Constellation and ITP Live have partnered with Global Gift Foundation, a philanthropic non-profit organisation focused on creating a positive impact on the lives of children, women and families in need. GGF utilises the power of celebrities, whom they call “Global Gifters”, to amplify the message and reach of its mission.
All money raised through OHM Live’s Constellation Dream Fund will go to beneficiaries such as Global Gift Foundation, Médecins Sans Frontières, Dubai Cares, the International Red Cross, the Red Crescent and FromU2Them, all of whom are supporting frontline workers who are working towards stopping the spread of the current pandemic.
