ICYMI: Here's Everyone Who Performed Live for 'Together At Home' This Weekend
Why Global Citizens Should Care
The coronavirus pandemic is impacting lives around the world, as global efforts to treat patients and limit the spread of the virus continue. We launched the Together At Home campaign and virtual concert series to both encourage people to follow social-distancing guidance, and to mobilize Global Citizens in taking meaningful action to help. Join the campaign by taking action against coronavirus here.

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.
