The show will be available via livestream on the official Wonders YouTube channel for a community watch party that will also raise funds for the MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund.

The fund aids musicians and music industry employees currently unable to work amid the novel coronavirus pandemic.

The live event will also pay tribute to songwriter-producer Adam Schlesinger, who died April 1 from COVID-19 complications. He’s best known for his work as co-founder of Fountains of Wayne and co-writer of their 2003 hit “Stacy’s Mom,” and also worked as exec music producer on the musical show Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and penned the iconic song “That Thing You Do.”

The event will take place Friday, April 17 at 4 p.m. PT / 7 p.m. ET.
