The Vamps frontman Bradley Simpson brought out his acoustic guitar for a few stripped-down songs during a livestreamed set as part of the "Together At Home" virtual series on Tuesday.
The lead singer played "All Night," "Wild Heart," and "Can We Dance" and chatted with his fans about the upcoming album he’s working on with his bandmates. Simpson encouraged his fans to visit globalcitizen.org/coronavirus to learn about how they can help out in the fight against the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
Simpson talked about music, brought his dog out for a snack, explained what makes a good cup of tea, and talked about how he’s staying busy while social distancing.
Simpson also applauded the work of the UK’s National Health Service (NHS).
"Support the NHS," he said. "The NHS are absolute heroes."
The Vamps frontman promised new music soon and talked about the power of music to bring people together.
"Massive shout out to Global Citizen," he said. "It’s a really incredible thing, utilizing music and the loudest voices in music to call a lot of people to action, and helping a lot of people out, and hopefully spreading the joy of music, putting a smile on people’s faces."
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 the WHO’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund.
Globally, more than 1,848,439 people have been infected by the coronavirus and 117,217 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 treatments and vaccines.
