As we all deal with boredom in self-isolation at home, our favorite musicians are providing us with the entertainment we desperately need. 

Chris Martin from Coldplay, Keith Urban, Pink, and more are going on Instagram Live to perform virtual concerts. Even Lizzo is helping out fans and followers with a guided meditation that features her iconic music to help calm nerves. 

John Legend is the next musician to go live, and even Chrissy Teigen will be part of his live performance at home.

The country music singer jammed out to his hit songs, and Nicole Kidman was his party of one. The 30-minute jam sesh is just what fans needed as they are bored in homes. It sparked a trend that many other musicians followed.


Chris Martin from Coldplay sparked the trend.

Lead singer of Coldplay, Chris Martin, surprised his fans with a live show performing his top songs. The whole band was going to get together for the show, but because they're practicing social distancing he sang a 30-minute acoustic performance. The candid experience felt raw and genuine, plus he laughed off a mishap in the popular song "Viva La Vida" when he mixed up a few chords.

John Legend and Chrissy Teigen went live as well.

John Legend aired his live Instagram performance at 1 p.m. Pacific Time/4 p.m. Eastern Time on March 17.

Inspired by Martin's show Legend tweeted, "My friend Chris Martin did a lovely little concert from home today. I'll be doing one tomorrow at 1pm Pacific time.  See you soon.  We'll try to get through this together! #TogetherAtHome."

Katharine McPhee Foster and David Foster will also perform a few short virtual shows.

Former American Idol contestant Katharine McPhee and her husband David Foster have decided to take their musical talents to Instagram Live. Their plan is to go Live every day at 5:30 to keep fans and followers entertained. McPhee Foster wrote in an Instagram post, "hi guys- just me here wearing the same sweater for 3 days. me & the hus @davidfoster had so much fun at the piano today going live. we wanna try and do it everyday at 5:30 PT cuz what else is there to do? Song suggestions below?"

Lizzo streamed a meditation session.

Lizzo made a gloriously on-brand decision to live-stream a guided meditation to help with the growing anxiety caused by social distancing and the coronavirus. "Because I Love You," the artist wrote in her Instagram post. Lizzo practiced her flute and was surrounded by crystals and incense. 

"A meditation and mantra to promote healing during this global crisis. Use at your own pace. Love you!"


Pink sang a free piano concert and lifted everyone's spirits.

"Free concert slash piano lessons from my heart to yours.... To make you feel my love," the artist wrote. Wearing a signature wide-brimmed hat, the talented singer crooned "To Make You Feel My Love" by Adele. One person commented, "That lifted my spirits... much needed. thanks..."

Global Citizen launched the initiative and hashtag #TogetherAtHome that many artists are following.

John Legend and Chris Martin were the first two artists to air their live concerts through the initiative. Now they're hoping more artists will continue along with the trend. Many fans were reaching out to favorite singers, like Alicia Keys, Beyoncé, and more, to perform an at-home, live show.
