Elton John concert is just what we need
Many of us are going a bit stir crazy from being confined to our homes in order to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
While a number of singers are performing songs on social media for our enjoyment, Elton John and several other big headliners are taking things a step further with the “iHeart Living Room Concert for America.”
The hour-long benefit will air on Sunday, March 29, at 9 p.m. ET on Fox. It will be broadcast on iHeartMedia radio stations as well.
The concert pays tribute to front line health care workers and first responders amid the coronavirus pandemic and is seeking donations for Feeding America and First Responders Children’s Foundation.
In addition to Sir Elton, performers include Alicia Keys, the Backstreet Boys, Billie Eilish, Billie Joe Armstrong, Mariah Carey and Tim McGraw.
The artists will appear from their own homes and will be filmed with their personal cell phones, camera and audio equipment.
While Americans are generally prone to panic during national emergencies (Please, don’t steal the Charmin from your supermarket’s rest room), we also know how to pull together and support each other during tough times. We pushed through the horror of 9/11, and built ourselves back up again.
So, let’s pull through this pandemic together with support, care, and compassion.
