Chris Martin and John Legend lead virtual concert series with World Health Organisation and Global Citizen to unite humanity

Global Citizen and the World Health Organization (WHO) have collaborated to launch a virtual concert series to unite humanity at a time when many may feel isolated at home amid the COVID-19 pandemic. “Solidarity Sessions: Together, At Home” will feature live performances from various music artists via Instagram, inspiring Global Citizens to stand together to beat coronavirus.

To kick it off, Coldplay frontman and Global Citizen Festival Curator Chris Martin interacted with his fans on Instagram, performing some of the band’s greatest hits live.

Next in the line-up will be John Legend who earlier today tweeted:

The campaign hopes to encourage and increase funding of the first-of-its-kind ‘Solidarity Response Fund’, which Global Citizen has joined forces to launch along with the World Health Organization (WHO), UN Foundation and other partners: COVID19ResponseFund.org.

The organizations have locked arms to encourage Global Citizens to take action by doing three vital things to help stop COVID-19:

  1. Call on World Leaders to increase WHO Funding
  2. Support the WHO’s Solidarity Fund at COVID19ResponseFund.org
  3. Keep healthy, by washing your hands and practicing social distancing

A string of international celebrities have already come on board to help raise awareness and show their support of the campaign including Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Billie Eilish.
