Talented musicians often come together to benefit those in need and this Sunday is no exception. The only difference is the coming together is virtual this time, in deference to the need for physical distancing in the wake of Covid 19.

Elton John will be the host of this star-studded show which includes such talents as Alicia Keys, the Backstreet Boys, Billie Eilish, Billie Joe Armstrong, Mariah Carey, and Tim McGraw.

Airing on Fox and iHeart Media from 9 to 10 p.m. Eastern Time, the show will be commercial-free, will honor front-line health professionals and first responders on the front lines of fighting the ongoing pandemic, and will ask viewers to support two wonderful charitable organizations.

    Thanks Lizbeth! It’s wonderful that artists come together in this time of need. Music is a great leveller. I’ll bookmark this.

      Thanks for writing. I agree, Susan, and think music is a wonderful medium. That’s a good way to put it; a great leveler. I’ve read the same thing about the virus; it makes us aware that we’re one people.

    Music is something I cannot imagine any life without – good times or bad times.
    Thank you for sharing!

    Hi Kalpana, Thanks for writing. I hope you can watch it, too, in your far away time zone (15-1/2 hours away from Hawai’i). And I hope you stay safe, too.
