The "Together at Home" virtual concert series — launched last week by Global Citizen in partnership with the World Health Organization — got into full swing over the weekend with no fewer than 12 artists and celebrities bringing us some incredible music and entertainment live from their homes.
The Instagram live concerts ran throughout Saturday and Sunday, as many of us were experiencing our first full weekend of practicing social distancing – meaning taking the crucial step of staying in as much as possible to help contain the spread of coronavirus.
Hundreds of thousands of people from around the world tuned in to hear amazing sets from artists like Miguel, Rufus Wainwright, Bastille, Lindsey Sterling, Sauti Sol, DJ Cuppy, and even an unexpected piano concert from news anchor Katie Couric (!).
Performers encouraged fans to take meaningful action and lend their voice to global efforts to tackle COVID-19 through our Together at Home campaign.
You can find out more on our Together At Home campaign page about coronavirus and how you can take action to help combat it, like calling on G20 states to support the global effort against COVID-19, and spreading the word on social media about the World Health Organization’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund.
The Together At Home live concerts are happening every day, so you can find out who's coming next and how to tune in by following our social media channels for updates.
Here’s a round-up of all the Together At Home performances over the weekend, and links to performances you might have missed!
