Mixing celebrities with Fortnite streaming has been a winning combo before. In March, a stream of rapper Drake playing the massively popular battle royale game with Ninja, one of the most popular Fortnite streamers on Twitch with 11 million followers.
That stream broke Twitch's viewer record at the time, with a peak of more than 600,000 people watching at the same time. (Ninja broke Twitch's record again a month later playing Fortnite, hitting 667,000 concurrent viewers.)
The special Twitch stream will air from 4 pm to 6 pm PT on Friday, and will be hosted by Rachel "Seltzer" Quirico. The organizers want to raise awareness for Stand Up to Cancer's main telecast and encourage people to visit the charity's site, StandUpToCancer.org.
