As we continue to search for more things to occupy our time, some of our favorite musicians are taking to Instagram live to perform our favorite hits, and it's become a highlight of social distancing. From John Legend to Keith Urban, there's been no shortage of musical relief these days. And in case you missed it, ahead, check out seven Instagram concerts that are proving the power of social media during times like this. 

John Legend

Kicking off the concert series trend, Legend and his piano gave quite a show. Joining him was wife Chrissy Teigen donning a bathrobe and drinking wine, and his adorable baby girl, Luna, who also wanted to join in on the fun. The serenade added some beauty to our monotonous day at home. 

James Blake

Today, Blake sang an assortment of covers from artists like Billie Eilish and Frank Ocean that sent Twitter into a frenzy. The smooth sounds of his voice felt like a calm in a storm. "James Blake doing a live concert is exactly what my ears needed this quarantine," one tweet about Blake read. 

DJ D-Nice

Inarguably the most popular livestreaming DJ set during social distancing, the D-Nice has been throwing Instagram parties through the weekend. Viewership peaked on Saturday, with the likes of Gabrielle Union, Michelle Obama, Bernie Sanders, Chaka Khan, and Will Smith tuning in. More than 150K viewers have tuned in for Club Quarantine.

Keith Urban

With his wife, Nicole Kidman, dancing along, Urban and his guitar put on a show for viewers. The duo danced the night away while the rest of us did the same from behind our phones. 

Chris Martin

As yet another part of #TogetherAtHome series, the Coldplay front man played away at his piano while beautifully belting out some of our favorites. "Chris Martin going live on IG to sing a few songs to entertain people who are isolated in their homes and getting so nervous he messes up the lyrics and starts giggling … Please, this is the cutest thing, this man sang in stadiums before," a tweet read about his heartwarming performance.


The "Adorn" singer gave a wonderful performance as part of the #TogetherAtHome series. "With numbers projected to spike this week I want to remind everyone to PLEASE STAY HOME and help all our healthcare professionals manage the demand for care!" Miguel said of the show. "You can also Join me and @who by taking action against #COVID19 at"

Swae Lee

Half of the hip-hop duo Rae Sremmurd, Lee put on a hilarious performance in which he pretended to crowd-surf and even dodged a crazed "fan" who ran onto the stage. A bit of humor and a lot of music surely goes a long way. 

Tori Kelly

The singer belted out a few covers and even added JoJo to the live, leaving all of us in tears. "JoJo and Tori Kelly singing 'When You Believe' by Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey on Instagram Live," someone said of the collaboration. "It took years of fans begging and an apocalyptic pandemic, but we have finally been BLESSED."
