#TogetherAtHome and the Global Citizen Present a Star-Studded Concert Series

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at FSU chapter.

Because of the COVID-19 outbreak, most (if not all) live performances have been canceled. This means that musicians that were going on tour can no longer perform for audiences in person. To make up for that and to still be able to entertain their fans, a slew of celebrities have been giving at-home concerts with the concert series #TogetherAtHome created by Chris Martin of Coldplay and the Global Citizen. Here are a few concerts that have already happened:

Chris Martin

The lead singer of the popular band Coldplay gave a mini-concert from home also encouraging the #TogetherAtHome hashtag. He performed songs like “Viva la Vida” and explained some of the origins of their most popular songs.

John Legend

On March 18, John Legend played some of his songs for the #TogetherAtHome concert series. He also performed some songs that he enjoys like Stevie Wonder’s “Stay With You.” Chrissy Teigen, John Legend’s wife, even made a guest appearance when she sat on the piano. John Legend then serenaded her for the rest of the “concert.”


This Irish singer, known for songs like “Take Me to Church” and “Budapest,” performed a concert at his own house. On March 20, Hozier hosted a “virtual no-contact concert” to encourage the hashtag #TogetherAtHome.

Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello

Not to be forgotten, this power couple hosted a 30-minute mini-concert from home. The duo performed songs like Mendes’ “Kiss Me” and “Lost In Japan.” They also answered questions live from fans.

Charlie Puth

This concert series provides a unique way for fans to interact with stars and their music. Fans can get to know their favorite stars in a more intimate setting than a huge arena. A great example of this is Charlie Puth, who played some of his songs like “One Call Away” and explained the story behind them. He also sang “You’ve Got a Friend” by James Taylor, which helped inspire Puth’s song “See You Again.”

Kerry Washington

While not a singer, Kerry Washington teamed up with Dr. Nadine Burke Harris, California’s first surgeon, to discuss the Coronavirus. She explained why social distancing is powerful and effective and why, even if you don’t show symptoms, you should stay home. Dr. Harris explained that you never know who is immunocompromised or not.  

Bastille’s Dan Smith

The lead singer of the band best known for their 2013 hit “Pompeii” contributed to the #TogetherAtHome concert series from the UK. He performed “Pompeii” and a fun variation of Dolly Parton’s “Jolene” that encourages people to stay home and wash their hands.

Tayla Parx

This singer/songwriter/actress is known for her roles in Hairspray (the movie) and True Jackson, VP. She is also known for her song “Fight” with Florida Georgia Line, and she co-wrote “Love Lies,” “Thank U, Next” and “High Hopes.” She sang her song “Disconnected” and a medley of the songs that she has helped write. She also introduced her dog, Bella, to the fans.
