While coronavirus concerns have left the world in a state of panic, they haven’t stopped entertainers from connecting with their fans.
Musicians are among the millions practicing social distancing and staying at home, meaning in-person concerts are out of the question. That said, a few artists have found the perfect way to put on live performances while also staying safe: virtual concerts!
Pink took self-isolation as an opportunity to expand her musical talents. She shared a video of herself playing the piano and singing a Bob Dylan classic, giving her Instagram followers a short but intimate concert.
“Free concert slash piano lessons from my heart to yours,” she wrote. “To make you feel my love.”
Coldplay’s Chris Martin treated his fans to a 29-minute concert while broadcasting on Instagram Live. Among the hits he played were “Full Of Stars”, “Hymn For The Weekend”, and “Yellow.” He even took song requests from the comments!
“I requested a few songs but I was determined to get him to sing Green Eye, one of my all time favorite Coldplay songs, and he sang it,” one viewer wrote. “Thank you Chris! you made my entire month!”
Katharine McPhee and David Foster took advantage of Instagram Live with an impromptu concert as well. “We decided because we’re all housebound as most of you are — or should be — that we would have a little fun, ” they said. They enjoyed it so much that they plan to continue their live streams every day!
“Me & the hus @davidfoster had so much fun at the piano today going live,” McPhee wrote. “We wanna try and do it everyday at 5:30 PT cuz what else is there to do?”
Even Keith Urban turned his warehouse into a garage band style show.
What a great way to give homebound people free, lighthearted entertainment! Clearly, these celebrities care deeply about their fans. Keep shining that light and spreading hope, all of you!
