WebTVAsia and YouTube on Friday announced ‘One Love Asia,’ a star-studded concert in support of UNICEF, featuring a stellar lineup of celebrities, artists, public figures, and YouTube creators across Asian countries, including Vietnam.
The concert will be livestreamed exclusively on One Love Asia's official YouTube channel on May 27.

All donations from the livestream on One Love Asia will go to UNICEF Asia in an effort to prevent the COVID-19 pandemic from becoming a lasting crisis for vulnerable children.
CEO of WebTVAsia Fred Chong said this is one of the biggest initiatives from the Asian entertainment community to show support for UNICEF through one cohesive message of love and unity.
“We cannot thank all the participants enough for contributing to this special concert,” Chong said.
“We’re excited to be supporting WebTVAsia and UNICEF to bring this very special concert to YouTube audiences across APAC and globally,” said Gautam Anand, managing director of YouTube APAC.
“One Love Asia encapsulates our commitment to championing talent and giving them a platform to share their creativity and make a positive impact in the world.”
UNICEF is thrilled to be part of the ‘One Love Asia’ concert, said Karin Hulshof, UNICEF’s regional director for East Asia and Pacific.
“Together we will create greater awareness of UNICEF’s work for children and families so they will be able to recover, rebound, and reimagine a stronger future,” Hulshof added.
With many countries slowly opening up, ‘One Love Asia’ hopes to spread positivity on the path to recovery, while igniting a sense of unity and love across Asia.
WebTVAsia CEO Chong said Asian countries and its people have been severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, so the overwhelming response from the artists and YouTube to support this UNICEF Asia donation drive makes this project truly special.
The ‘One Love Asia’ concert is part of UNICEF’s #Reimagine global campaign to task the global community to #Reimagine a better world for children post-COVID-19.
