COVID-19 has taken over the entertainment world by storm.
Big Hollywood blockbusters have been postponed until next year, all sporting events are cancelled, and talk show hosts are in self-isolation and doing shows from their webcam.
What is there to do during these times of quarantine? Head on over to social media, of course.
Although concerts and venues are postponed due to fear of the disease spreading, artists have taken to social media to spread good vibes, harmony, and bring us all together again (while still complying with social distancing) through the universal language itself: music.
Last week John Legend (as well other artists such as Coldplay, Charlie Puth, Hozier, Shawn Mendes, and Camila Cabello, to name a few) took to Instagram Live to perform virtual concerts for their respective followers.
