Dinah Jane Laughs Her Way Through Joyful ‘Together At Home’ Performance

Why Global Citizens Should Care
The COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic is testing the resilience of health care systems worldwide. The "Together At Home" virtual series and campaign encourages people to practice social distancing and support the World Health Organization’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund. You can join our "Together At Home" campaign to help beat coronavirus by taking action here.

R&B singer Dinah Jane performed a fun and uplifting livestreamed home set as part of the "Together At Home" virtual series on Wednesday. 

Jane sang "Retrograde," "1501," "Lottery," "Missed A Spot," and performed a cover of the Carters' "Apeshit." The artist urged her fans to practice social distancing and to support the World Health Organization (WHO) in its fight to stop the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. 

"This is more than just an intimate show," she said. "I’m asking all of you to please take meaningful action to stop the coronavirus. Anything counts. Please donate if you can, lend your voice so we can stop this pandemic ASAP."

The former Fifth Harmony member shared details about her songs, talked about the process of becoming a solo artist, joked around, and reflected on the effects of the quarantine. At one point, she confused the day for Thursday, until a friend behind the camera told her it was Wednesday. 

"That’s how you know I haven't been sleeping," she said. "My sleeping schedule has been off, this whole quarantine has thrown us all off. Join the squad. I promise we're going to get through this."

Throughout the set, Jane interacted with her fans and provided a reprieve for people who are social distancing. 

"We’re trying to help the WHO get the funds they need to tackle the coronavirus, we need to get corona outta here," she said. 

The "Together At Home" campaign was launched on March 16 by Global Citizen and the WHO. Artists, actors, and influencers have joined the campaign to promote social distancing, foster community, and support the WHO’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund.

Globally, more than 1.36 million people have been infected by the coronavirus and 73,390 people have died from it, according to the WHO. The WHO is working to end the pandemic by coordinating a global relief effort, working to improved health care systems, delivering essential supplies, and looking for potential treatments and vaccines. 

You can help end the pandemic by practicing social distancing and supporting local community groups helping those in need of assistance.
