Icona Pop frontwoman Caroline Hjelt played a deep house set as part of the "Together At Home" virtual series on Friday.
The electropop star dubbed the set a "spa rave" as she was wearing a bathrobe and doing multiple facial treatments throughout the livestream, while grooving to the bass-heavy beats. Hjelt urged her fans to visit globalcitizen.org/coronavirus to take action to fight the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
"We’re here to help the World Health Organization get the funds they need to tackle the coronavirus," she said. "We’re very happy to do this with you guys. We’re physical distancing, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have fun and socialize like this and that we can’t dance."
Icona Pop is known for creating exuberant party bangers, and Hjelt made sure to bring a fun experience to her fans who are social distancing around the world and likely haven’t been able to go to a club in weeks or even months. The set was a reminder that people can still dance to great music in their homes.
Throughout the set, Hjelt held up a sign encouraging her fans to take action with Global Citizen.
The "Together At Home" campaign was launched on March 16 by Global Citizen and the World Health Organization (WHO) as a way to foster solidarity around the world. Artists, actors, and influencers have joined the campaign to support organizations on the frontlines of the coronavirus relief effort and provide solace to fans during this tragic and stressful time.
Globally, more than 2,078,605 people have been infected by the coronavirus and 139,505 people have died from it, according to the WHO. The WHO is assisting countries struggling to contain the pandemic by supporting health care workers, delivering essential supplies, and researching potential treatments and vaccines.
You can do your part to end the pandemic by practicing social distancing and supporting local community groups that help those in need of assistance.
