Coldplay's Chris Martin Performs Free Concert at His Home
- Chris Martin of Coldplay live-streamed a special performance from his home on March 16th as many people continue to self-isolate due to the ongoing coronavirus crisis.
The broadcast is the first installment of Together, at Home, in which artists perform virtually on the platform in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak.
“Maybe 9/11 was the last time I felt like we were all together,” Chris Martin said of the pandemic. He performed Coldplay tracks, covered David Bowie and answered fans’ questions on Instagram.
Together, at Home is a collaboration between the World Health Organization (WHO) and Global Citizen. They launched a campaign called the Solidarity Response Fund, aiming to raise $675 million throughout the month of April towards COVID-19 relief.
At the end of the broadcast, he announced that John Legend would be the next artist to participate in Together, at Home. “You can see a real piano player who doesn’t need fireworks to play,” he said.
“My friend Chris Martin did a lovely little concert from home today. I’ll be doing one tomorrow at 1pm Pacific time. See you soon. We’ll try to get through this together! #TogetherAtHome,” John Legend tweeted.
