As the world adjusts to the new temporary norm, many artists have moved their shows to live streams. During this time of hardship so many artists are unable to tour and so many people stuck at home. Now that venues are closed, there are still shows you can watch from the comfort of your own room.  

The biggest platform for live streams is One World: Together at Home by Global Citizen. 

The World Health Organization and the UN asked Global Citizens to support their COVID-19 response and bring the world together through music. They hope to inspire everyone to take action in their communities. 

With an exceptional group of artists, Global Citizen is now launching One World: Together At Home. On April 18th, there will be a broadcast filled with heartwarming stories from the frontlines of the Covid-19 Response along with performances from Elton John, Taylor Swift and Billie Eillish. Appearances will be curated by Lady Gaga and hosted by Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, and Stephen Colbert.

In addition, many artists are hosting their own live streams ranging from Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello to Train on the Global Citizen’s website. Other artists have taken to their instagram accounts to spread hope through their music. 

Miley Cyrus launched a social media show, “Bright Minded: Live with Miley,” which will air live on Instagram every weekday at 2:30 p.m. ET/11:30 a.m. PT.
