Are you ready for another one? Another Coronavirus-Live-Aid TV special? Even if you are not ready, it is upon us. On Sunday, March 29th, Elton John will be hosting a televised benefit concert featuring some of the most popular stars: Mariah Carey, Billie Eilish, Alicia Keys, Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong, Backstreet Boys, Tim McGraw and, I am sure, a few others.
The one-hour iHeartRadio Living Room Concert for America will air on Fox and iHeartMedia and will raise money for relief efforts amid the coronavirus outbreak: Feeding America and First Responders Children’s Foundation will benefit from all the money raised.
Since it was announced that the artists will be performing from their homes, using their own equipment (cell phones probably) to enforce social distancing recommendations, I don’t expect much more than the usual live streams we get every day since the beginning of this quarantine. Elton John will probably be performing at the piano in his living room, Billie Eilish will be sitting in her bedroom with her brother in another room and Billie Joe Armstrong… you get it, it’s gonna be another one of these, the antithesis of a normal concert, a lonely succession of performers that may remind you even more how lonely you are right now. But it is for an excellent cause, the cause of the moment.
It is also announced that the event will ‘pay tribute to the people on the frontlines who are putting their lives at risk every day to fight the spread of COVID-19 — the health professionals, first responders, and local heroes.’ And this is the best part of the entire event, as we are all thinking about all these health professionals every day.
So tune in this Sunday at 9 pm ET/6 pm PT, the good news is that this entire hour will be commercial-free.
