AceShowbiz – Dua Lipa kicked off the 24-hour One Humanity Live virtual concert by urging fans to support charities helping refugees during the coronavirus crisis.
The singer, who is a Kosovo refugee, performed a three-song set from her home in London during the livestream benefit.
“During this time it’s good to be kind to yourself, to ask for support from the people around you,” she told fans. “For the frontline workers, all their work is not going unnoticed, they are putting themselves on the line to look after other people. When this is over slowly as a community we can help rebuild our economy in whatever way.”
“Support the charities that are close to you, support the charities that also support refugees and people who really don’t have the opportunity to self-isolate, that do live in overcrowded areas.”
“I think in whatever way you can, if you have the opportunities to donate to charities and help people out, and call your friends and reach out to them and see what they are doing. All those things are important during this time. That way we can look after each other collectively.”
The day-long One Humanity Live event will feature at-home performances from Ricky Martin, Becky G, Cee-Lo Green, Melanie Chisholm, and Jason Derulo among others.
Donations made by viewers will go to the Constellation Dream Fund, which will benefit charities like the Global Gift Foundation and Medecins Sans Frontieres.
The show can be viewed at the Constellation website.
