Lady Gaga explained the concept in more detail during a recent chat on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
She said: "This show is not going to be a fundraiser."
Lady Gaga has collected a total of 35 million dollars, thanks to a phone call with Tim Cook, CEO of Apple. He donated 10 million dollars that will be used to purchase medical equipment. Gaga added that they will continue fundraising before the show.
"So when you guys introduce the whole special, you can tell everyone to put your wallets away, put your money away, we don't need it because we raised the money already."
"I'm very excited for them to just watch and enjoy the show."
