Courtesy of UNICEF USAPeter Frampton, Cher and Matchbox Twenty frontman Rob Thomas are among the artists who’ll be featured on a virtual streaming event hosted by UNICEF USA this weekend.

UNICEF Won’t Stop, which will highlight the organization’s COVID-19 response around the world, will stream Saturday, May 9, at 8 p.m. ET at UNICEFWontStop.org and on UNICEF USA’s YouTube channel.

Frampton and Thomas will perform and Cher will debut the new video for her latest single: a Spanish language version of ABBA‘s “Chiquitita.”

“I am so proud to premiere this new version during the broadcast of UNICEF Won’t Stop,” says Cher. “I’ve long admired UNICEF, especially for their work with young women, since I was a little girl. Now, more than ever, it’s critical that we prioritize every child around the world as if they were our own.”

Other artists set to perform during the event include Angélique Kidjo, Il Volo, Matthew Morrison and Jordin Sparks. The special will also feature appearances by ABBA‘s Björn Ulvaeus, Pink, Tea Leoni, Morgan Freeman, Jenna Bush Hager and Laurie Hernandez.
