With the deluge of headlines blaring the latest crisis sparked by the spread of the coronavirus, Mediaite has decided to dedicate at least one story per day to good news coming in from around the world.

Although live concerts have been canceled amid the coronavirus outbreak, several artists have taken this opportunity to entertain their fans from home as part of a virtual music series.

Global Citizen and the World Health Organization (WHO) have presented an initiative titled “Together, At Home,” which features live performances from artists on Instagram and Twitter.

Coldplay’s Chris Martin was the first to perform as part of the Global Citizen initiative, followed by John Legend, and Charlie Puth, who will be performing on Instagram live later on Wednesday:
