Musicians perform for fans at home via social media
Self-isolation and social distancing have quickly become buzzwords on social media. And with more and more people retreating indoors to avoid the spread of Covid19, events are also being cancelled left right and centre.
This has left performers high and dry.
But thanks to social media, entertainers are using the opportunity to perform mini live concerts for their fans, in bathrobes! ( watch below )
Chris Martin was the first to surprise fans by putting on a mini-concert from the comfort of his home using Instagram Live. John Legend followed suit and announced on Twitter that he would also put on a little show for everyone sitting bored at home, and even took requests! And now Charlie Puth has done the same.
It is all part of a World Health Organisation (WHO) challenge for their #TogetherAtHome initiative whereby artists do solo concerts as part of “Together, at Home,” online concerts series presented by the World Health Organization (WHO) and Global Citizen.
The organizations have teamed up to launch the Solidarity Response Fund which aims to raise $675 million towards COVID-19 relief.
We can’t wait to see who the next artist to join the #TogetherAtHome challenge will be!
