I’m finally updating!!!
Earlier, I got a Fitbit Inspire. Then, armed with pretzels and pigs’n blankets, my family and I watched the Global Citizen Concert.
Note: I am typing this live.
As I have probably said (and shown) thousands of times before (three times) I am more of a musical fan than a pop/rock/others fan. Most likely, I won’t recognize half of these artists. From the line up I found, (This link: https://www.androidcentral.com/how-watch-one-world-together-home-concert-free-anywhere-online) the main artists I recognized were Taylor Swift (obviously) and John Legend (The Voice)
For those of you who don’t know what the Global Citizen Concert is, lemme tell you. the Official name is The One World: Together at Home concert, a stay at home concert with over 70 total artists performing from home. The event is hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon and Stephen Colbert, with singers Billie Eilish, Lizzo, Camila Cabello, Cecile Dione, Ellen Degeneres, Lady Gaga, Megan Rapinoe, Taylor Swift, and more.
So this is my first person account. (that sounded too formal)
Jess Glynne: Wow, I have never heard of her, but that was great.
I was looking at the lineup, I saw Leslie Odom Jr. AARON BURR, SIR.
Liam Payne and Rita Ora: Wow. The vocals.
BEN PLATT’S PERFORMING TOO
Christine and the Queens: Really flowy and echoey.
