In This Together
With concerts getting cancelled, movie releases being delayed and the whole world being urged to stay indoors, our favourite stars and artists have taken over the digital route to reach out to all their fans. From Ayushmann Khurrana’s poetry videos to Chris Martin and John Legend’s Instagram concerts - our beloved celebrities are making sure we don’t miss out on anything fun and keep our spirits high in this sensitive hour..
Joining this digital bandwagon is another superstar who is known for her eccentric taste and style - Lady Gaga. She has teamed up with Global Citizen and the WHO to headline a virtual concert to honour medical workers during the coronavirus pandemic. This virtual concert will be broadcasted globally and will feature performances from the likes of Sir Elton John, Chris Martin, Sir Paul McCartney, John Legend, Lizzo and Billie Eilish. The concert will be streamed on April 18th 2020 and is said to be a celebration of the titanic effort in fighting the pandemic.\
In a statement, Lady Gaga said, “My heart is very, very, achy and warm for those who are ER doctors and nurses who are sleeping in cars to make sure they don’t infect their families or their patients. What you’re doing is putting yourselves in harm’s way to help the world, and we all salute you, and you are a triumph, truly.”
“When we do air live on April 18th,” Lady Gaga adds, “put your wallet away, put anything away that you need to. Sit back and enjoy the show that you all very much deserve.”
So far, she has helped raise over $35 million to benefit the World Health Organization, which the organization confirms will go towards buying PPE supplies and testing kits.
Wait, if you thought that Bollywood is not going to be a part of this global spectacle, then think again! Shah Rukh Khan and Priyanka Chopra Jonas will also be a part of this star-studded digital concert to help raise morale during the coronavirus pandemic.
Despite the crisis and the chaos, we think it’s beautiful how these artists are coming together to celebrate the spirit of humanity!
