Beyonce and other celebrities made appearances during Lady Gaga's One World: Together at Home special to benefit the World Health Organization after the U.S. cut $500 million in funding.

Beyonce, who is Creole, appeared during the virtual special to discuss how the coronavirus is affecting Black people.

The "Halo" hitmaker wasn't included in the original line-up for the virtual event on Saturday night, but in a surprise video message she spoke about the essential workers helping to keep the country running - many of whom are Black.

"Tonight, we celebrate true heroes," she said. "Those who are making the ultimate sacrifice to keep us all safe, fed and healthy. To the doctors, nurses and other healthcare workers who are away from their families to take care of ours, we continue to pray for your safety."

She added: "To those in the food industry, delivery workers, mail carriers and sanitation employees, who are working so we can be safe in our homes, we thank you for your selfless service."

Beyonce also touched on the high number of Black people who have died from coronavirus: "Black Americans disproportionately belong to these essential parts of the workforce that do not have the luxury of working from home. African American communities at large have been severely affected in this crisis.

"Those with pre-existing conditions are at an even higher risk. This virus is killing black people at an alarmingly high rate here in America. A recent report in my home city, Houston, Texas, showed that of COVID-19 deaths within Houston city limits, 57 per cent of fatal cases are African American."

The "Single Ladies" singer pleaded with Black people to stay home: "Please protect yourselves. We are one family and we need you, we need your voices and your abilities and your strength all over this world. I know it's very hard but please be patient, stay encouraged, keep the faith, stay positive and continue to pray for our heroes. Good night, and God bless you."

Kylie Jenner and Tyga

American socialite Kylie Jenner, 17, covers her mouth after getting Restylane lip filler injections. Kylie and her washed up rapper boyfriend, Tyga, 25, arrived at LAX airport to catch a flight to Italy with Kylie's sister, Kim Kardashian, early Tuesday. According to a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon who offers the service, most patients can go out into public 24 hours after getting the lip injections. Because Restylane works by drawing the body's own fluids to the injection site the shots effects don't last long. Restylane costs $400-$550 per injection.
