HeartMedia and Fox came together last night for an inspiring night of music to help raise money for two organizations doing their part to help with coronavirus relief, Feeding America and First Responders Children’s Foundation.
The "iHeart Living Room Concert for America" was hosted by Elton John, and featured one-of-a-kind performances recorded by the artists at their home in order to keep them safe due to the coronavirus.
Among last night’s performances
Alicia Keys accompanied herself on piano performing her latest single “Underdog” and dedicating it to all the first responders.
Backstreet Boys’ performed “I Want It That Way,” with each band member singing from self-isolation at their own home. Kevin Richardson’s kids even made an appearance.
Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl, who was in Hawaii, performed his classic “My Hero,” dedicating it to all the folks on the frontlines. He also noted that if you sing the last chorus while washing your hands, you’ll be in good shape.
Billie Eilish and brother Finneas performed “Bad Guy,” while sitting on an orange couch in their family home.
Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes performed “My Oh My,” with Shawn on guitar.
Billy Joe Armstrong performed the Green Day classic “Boulevard of Broken Dreams,” and was joined by his pooches, which made him laugh.
Lady Gaga checked in to make sure everyone is taking care of their mental health, urging fans to “find joy however you can,” and to stay connected with friends and family, noting she finds joy every day in a “moment of gratitude.”
Tim McGraw performed “Something Like That” in front of his pool (being taped by his daughter Maggie) with the wind blowing and his dogs running around him, while his band accompanied him from their homes.
Dr. Elvis Francois, from the Mayo Clinic, performed John Lennon’s “Imagine.”
Sam Smith, who was home in London, treated the audience to an a cappella version of “How Do You Sleep,” noting that he hopes it makes people feel better, since music always makes him feel better.
Elton chatted with Lizzo, who seemed to be channeling the host with her frames, and even got Elton to sing a little of her hit “Juice.”
Demi Lovato performed an emotional version of “Skyscraper,” accompanying herself on piano.
H.E.R. performed a beautiful new track, "Keep Holding On," from her living room couch.
Mariah Carey sang “Always Be My Baby” from her home studio in New York, dedicating it to “Dem Babies,” for not complaining too much about staying home.
And finally, host Elton John wrapped up the evening with a bit of his classic “Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me."
