Thanks to Chris Martin, John Legend and Gavin James

John Legend, Pink, Chris Martin and more artists are taking to social media to deliver live performances via social media during lockdown.

Martin was among the first to kick off the trend, addressing followers from his home on Monday before launching into a 30-minute mini-set that included acoustic renditions of Coldplay hits such as “Trouble” and “A Sky Full of Stars,” as well as a David Bowie cover.

Gavin James is doing a live stream from his house at 8pm tomorrow to raise funds for Alone Ireland, who are looking the elderly in our society. He’s not sure how long he will perform for - but he said he will keep playing until they raise loads of money for Aware.

 

 

Believe it or not, there are some people in the world who have not heard all this coronavirus news…

While the rest of the world has been learning about social distancing and such, Jared Leto was in a silent retreat for 12 days, and tweeted that he walked back into a completely changed world.

He isn’t the only one. There is a series of Big Brother being filmed and aired in Germany right now and none of the housemates had any idea about the global pandemic until a live special last night. The hosts of the show were behind a glass panel as they explained the seriousness of what is going on, and they had messages of reassurances from their family members that they were doing okay.
