With the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, festivals, performances, concerts, and all large gatherings have been canceled all over the world. As a result, many sad fans and artists are isolated in their homes, aching for entertainment. To combat this chaotic time and bring everyone some self-quarantined joy, some musicians have taken to social media to offer online performances, livestreamed to whoever wants to see.
For example, Lady Gaga teamed up with the World Health Organization and Global Citizen to organize the two-hour livestream 'One World: Together at Home,' on April 18. Tons of artists participated, including Stevie Wonder, Taylor Swift, the Rolling Stones, Billie Eilish, Jennifer Lopez, and even a legendary quartet performance with Gaga, Celine Dion, Andrea Bocelli, and John Legend. The virtual concert raised an impressive US$127.9 million for health care workers and coronavirus relief, which will reportedly be split between the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund and local and regional responders.
