These kind-hearted singers decided to raise the spirits of people in quarantine by hosting free live concerts on Instagram!
Coldplay frontman Chris Martin kicked off the wonderful trend on Monday by performing a 30-minute piano set on the band’s Instagram account.
Fellow musician John Legend announced his own Instagram live concert on Tuesday, saying, “My friend Chris Martin did a lovely little concert from home today. I’ll be doing one tomorrow at 1pm Pacific time. See you soon. We’ll try to get through this together!”
His wife, Chrissy Teigen, chimed in, “I’ll be there!! because I literally have no choice.”
P!nk also treated her fans to a cover of “Make You Feel My Love,” a song originally performed by Bob Dylan but also famously covered by Adele.
Katharine Foster performed some songs together with her husband, David Foster, on Instagram Live. She later wrote that they’ll be doing it “everyday at 5:30 PT” and asked for song suggestions.

During these uncertain times the entire world is shutting itself down. Part of that means that people aren’t going out and enjoying live music or any entertainment. I’m kicking this off and I invite all my brothers and sisters in the music world to go on Instagram and share a little something with people to help them while they hunker down in their homes. #SocialDistanceSessions #SDSessions Come on @johnmayer @jason_mraz @ingridmichaelson @christrapperofficial @chrisdaughtry @mattnathanson @johnlegend @matthewkoma @countingcrows @abbyandersonmusic @brandicarlile @gavindegraw @alanis @cyndilauper #togetherathome
