Singer-songwriter Meghan Trainor performed with her ukulele during a livestreamed set as part of the "Together At Home" virtual series on Monday.
Trainor sang "Ashes" and "Dear Future Husband," and covered Coldplay’s "Cry Cry Cry" with her husband. The pop star also encouraged her fans to visit globalcitizen.org/coronavirus to learn more about how they can help stop the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic and support health care workers.
"I’ve seen a bunch of these and I feel so cool that I’m doing one now," she said. "Thank you for Global Citizen for doing this with me. They are helping the World Health Organization get the funds they need to fight the coronavirus."
In addition to supporting the "Together At Home" campaign, Trainor asked her fans to support Feeding America. She said that a $1 donation would provide 10 meals to families in need.
"There’s a lot of families out there struggling in silence and we need to help them," she said. "It's a dark time right now, but we can do this together."
The "Together At Home" campaign was launched on March 16 by Global Citizen and the WHO as a way to foster solidarity around the world. Artists, actors, and influencers have joined the campaign to entertain fans who are social distancing and support organizations that are working to end the pandemic.
Globally, more than 1,776,867 people have been infected by the coronavirus and 111,828 people have died from it, according to the WHO. Organizations such as the United Nations and Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, are supporting health care workers, delivering essential supplies, and researching potential treatments and vaccines.
