Say it ain’t so! The “Global Rock Concert for a Good Cause” is going virtual.
Lots of star performances, but… just you in your sweats, all alone…no group energy and interactions with strangers, no chants or contact highs…
…. also, no traffic or parking problems, free admission, good seats, food and drink readily available…
Global Citizen and the World Health Organization are teaming up for “One World: Together at Home,” a globally televised and streamed special in support of the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
Hosted by Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel and Stephen Colbert, the show’s goal is to unify and inspire people around the world to take meaningful actions that increase support for the global COVID-19 response.

R.I.P. Kenny Rogers
Kenny Rogers had a long career—he started young and when he died, two weeks ago, at age 81, he’d only been retired for five years. (His farewell tour was in 2015.)
Rogers started as a folkie with The New Christy Minstrels, went Top 40 in the late 60’s and early 70’s with the First Edition, pivoted to Country super-stardom, and became even more famous when his hits crossed over to Pop: “Lady” went to #1 and “Islands In The Stream” with Dolly Parton hit #1 in 1983 on both Country AND Pop charts.
