The coronavirus has stopped life as we know it. Along with policies of social isolation and the closure of non-essential businesses, musicians and band members of all genres have had to cancel concerts, postpone recordings and change their plans. In a world where staying at home has become more important, artists continue to seek ways to reach out to their audiences. If music brings you immense pleasure and you want to see your favorite artists on stage, Global Citizen has several concerts planned to enjoy in times of quarantine.
What is the Global Citizen concert about?Global Citizen is an organization dedicated to fighting and eradicating poverty by the year 2030. On this occasion, and united against the problems that COVID-19 is generating in the population, its members created a series of virtual concerts, called Together At Home. This campaign uses social networks for promotion and brings together hundreds of well-known artists so that, through musical performances, they can generate awareness to combat the coronavirus. So far, musicians such as Rufus Wainwright, Chris Martin, John Legend and Hozier, among others, have participated.
What is the next concert?One World: Together at Home is the next concert to be held under this musical campaign.
Directed by Lady Gaga, the concert will be broadcast in the United States on Saturday, April 18th. We will have to wait until the next day to see it in other parts of the world. The concert will bring together artists such as Eddie Vedder, Elton John, Billy Joe Armstrong and Paul McCartney, who will perform from various parts of the world. The virtual concert will also feature stories of those people who risk their lives every day to save others.
Without a doubt, there will be much to learn in the company of good music.
What is the benefit?The monetary contribution of the members of the Global Citizen organization directly benefits the World Health Organization, which is in charge of distributing the money among its member states to equip health personnel. This ensures that all countries have the means and resources to fight the spread of the virus and assist those who need it most. With a mission to combat and eradicate COVID-19, the World Health Organization has already equipped more than 100 countries, including nations in Africa and Latin America.
The coronavirus has changed our ways of life and, in the face of policies of social isolation, we must find new forms of entertainment. Global Citizen, together with renowned artists, has created a music campaign in which virtual concerts are held from various points of the world and all the money generated benefits the World Health Organization. This organization, in turn, equips hundreds of countries and helps bring us one step closer to eradicating COVID-19.
