John Legend is set to perform in a stay-at-home concert to pay tribute and appreciate healthcare workers who have been at the frontline of the pandemic.


Appreciating those who help people in the time of difficult challenges are some of the little ways one can payback for all the time and dedication they have devoted.

With the coronavirus pandemic raging on, everyone is trying their best to alleviate the stress by keeping busy. However, those on the frontlines are the health workers, and the pressure has dramatically increased since the virus broke out.

To show appreciation and pay tribute to the healthcare workers who have been championing the care of sick individuals, John Legend is partnering with iHeartRadio for an ultimate home concert.

The performance presented by iHeartRadio is a four-week series to celebrate those on the frontline. Taking to their Twitter account they announced:

"...John is joining us in honoring the brave COVID-19 first responders. #iHeartFirstResponders."


The performance which will be hosted by Ryan Seacrest is set to see John Legend perform some of his greatest hits while also dedicating songs to first responders.

John's performance, which can be streamed on iHeartRadio's YouTube channel, would also be available for 72 hours after the original performance ends so that those who could not be a part of it could later view it.

He expressed that it has been difficult not having to work.


The iHeartRadio's First Responder Fridays with FirstNet, built with AT&T, is also set to help raise funds towards coronavirus relief, and those who tune in can make donations.

John is not the first to perform for iHeart Radio's concerts; his at-home show follows Lewis Capaldi and Meghan Trainor, who performed in April. He is, however, the first to perform for the month of May.

Those who tune in can send personal messages to thank front liners for the jobs they are doing by using the iHeartFirstResponders hashtag on social media.


John, who has been spending the quarantine with his wife and kids Luna and Miles, in a rented beach-side California home, is happy to spend the time with his family.

Although he expressed that it has been difficult not having to work for an extended period, but he is making the best of it by becoming more involved with the kids and cooking for the family.

John also admitted that while everyone is trying to figure out how to get through this, the best one can do is stay in touch with those who matter and hope things better on time.

And while the lockdown goes on, the award-winning singer has admitted that he is happy to roll up his sleeves and help out more at home.
