On Tuesday, Bruce Springsteen called in to Good Morning America to announce something very special to his heart: Jersey 4 Jersey, a star-studded streaming concert event geared around raising funds for COVID-19 relief scheduled for April 22.

Specifically, funds generated during the show will benefit the New Jersey Pandemic Relief Fund.

As expected given the stakes and Springsteen’s involvement, Jersey for Jersey will feature participation from several huge stars. As Springsteen said in a statement furnished by GMA:

“New Jersey has been hit especially hard by the coronavirus pandemic, and the people of New Jersey have always stepped up during difficult times.”

Via the New Jersey Pandemic Relief Fund’s news release, the lineup for the event looks like this:

This special evening will feature New Jersey’s biggest champions and celebrities participating from their homes, including Saquon Barkley, Tony Bennett, Jon Bon Jovi, Danny DeVito, Whoopi Goldberg, Halsey, Chelsea Handler, Charlie Puth, Kelly Ripa, Chris Rock, Bruce Springsteen, Jon Stewart, SZA and more. This recognition of New Jersey’s strength and character will also include first-hand accounts from front-line workers and citizens impacted by the pandemic.

More, via GMA’s release:

“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,” New Jersey First Lady Tammy Murphy said in a press release. “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.”

The Jersey 4 Jersey broadcast will air on ABC at 7:00 p.m. ET on April 22.
