Artists Share One-Of-A Kind Performances During “iHeart Living Room Concert for America”

iHeartMedia and Fox came together last night for an inspiring night of music to help raise money for two organizations doing their part to help with coronavirus relief, Feeding America and First Responders Children’s Foundation.

The “iHeart Living Room Concert for America” was hosted by Elton John, and featured one-of-a-kind performances recorded by the artists at their home in order to keep them safe due to the coronavirus.

Among last night’s performances include:

Alicia Keys on piano performing her new single “Underdog”, dedicated to all first responders.

Backstreet Boys’ performed “I Want it That Way” a classic- with each band member singing from their own homes- Kevin’s kids even joined in!

Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl, streaming from Hawaii, performed “My Hero” dedicated to everyone on the frontlines- pro tip: sing the chorus to my hero while washing your hands are you’re in the clear!

Billie Eilish and her brother Finneas performed “Bad Guy” from their family home.

Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes performed “My Oh My” with Shawn strumming guitar.

Billy Joe Armstrong of Green Day performed the groups classic “Boulevard of Broken Dreams” and was joined by his pups who joined in for a good laugh for the punk rocker-

Lady Gaga did her part and checked in with viewers’ mental health stating “find joy however you can”, reminding everyone to stay connected with your friends and family nothing to find joy every day in a “moment of gratitude” furthermore cementing Gaga’s place in all of our hearts (keep Gaga safe, we need her)

Tim McGraw performed “Something Like That” in the backyard of his family home with the help of his daughter Maggie, his band joined in from their own homes!

Dr. Elvis Francois, from the Mayo Clinic, performed John Lennon’s “Imagine”

Sam Smith, home in London, sang an a cappella rendition of “How Do You Sleep” hoping to spread some positive with the sound of music, which always makes him feel better.

Elton John chatted with Lizzo who enticed the famed songwriter to relieve his MC duties to sing a little of her hit “Juice” Demi Lovato performed her tune “Skyscraper” whilst playing the piano, leaving not a dry-eye in her wake.

H.E.R. performed a brand new track “Keep Holding On” from her living room

Mariah Carey sang “Always Be My Baby” from her home studio in New York

and of course, Elton John wrapped up the night with his classic “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down On Me”


The world may be going through something but luckily all our favorite artists are pulling together to bring the positive energy right to your home.

And this goes for your local musicians and bands as well- keep an eye and an ear out to your social media accounts in the coming days and catch someone playing for you! Musicians, singers, producers, artists, and more are adapting to the idea of performing to someone who isn’t sitting in front of you- and it’s working. Our friends who have come on the show for one-off performances are some of the people going about it full-force- Kevin from Atom Ghost, we’re looking at you!
