COVID concerts: Celebrities around the world who are performing for us
While people around the world confine themselves to their homes so as not to contract or further the spread of the deadly coronavirus, A-listers are live-streaming mini-performances on social media.
On Monday, Global Citizen – an organisation that focuses on combatting poverty – announced their new At Home Together series. The concert was live streamed by musician John Legend, however he is not the only celebrity to take it upon themselves to bring a little brightness via a phone or laptop screen during this unprecedented period of social isolation.
Pink took to Instagram to perform Adele’s "Make You Feel My Love", while Australian powerhouse Keith Urban shared his own special performance which featured his actress wife, Nicole Kidman.
Cellist Yo-Yo Ma posted a video on Twitter with her own special message: “This is for the healthcare workers on the frontlines — the Sarabande from Bach’s Cello Suite No. 3,” he wrote, sharing a two-minute clip of himself playing. “Your ability to balance human connection and scientific truth in service of us all gives me hope.”View this post on Instagram
