TORONTO — Stay home and practice social distancing – these have been the orders of doctors everywhere in an attempt to stop the spread of the novel coronavirus.

While celebrities are no exception to the new social rule, some are getting creative to stay connected with their fans.

With the cancellation and postponement of numerous concerts, many musicians have relocated to their living rooms, using social media to give viewers a unique concert experience while making us feel #TogetherAtHome.

Here’s a roundup of some of those performances to help you get through the social separation.

Coldplay

The band’s frontman, Chris Martin, launched the movement with a livestream posted on the band’s Instagram account on March 16.

His performance is the first in a virtual concert series organized by the World Health Organization and Global Citizen. The initiative is designed “to unite people around the world during the current coronavirus pandemic.”

Martin’s 30-minute video includes performances of hits like “Yellow,” and “A Sky Full of Stars.”

“Who knows, maybe tomorrow someone else will take it over,” he said, speaking to viewers between songs.

John Legend

R&B singer John Legend followed suit, holding his own virtual concert. The video posted on YouTube is almost an hour long, and includes appearances from wife Chrissy Teigen and daughter Luna.
