It will take place this Friday, April 3. It starts at 7 pm EST/4 pm PST. It will be streaming on Light in the Attic’s Twitch and YouTube channels. The event is raising funds for MusiCares’ COVID-19 relief fund.

“While quarantined at home – from Rio to Tokyo; Cardiff to Austin; Barbados to Italy – each musician will be doing what they do best, sharing the gift of song, maybe in their pajamas and maybe with their kids, and wherever feels comfy and cozy in the privacy of their home,” a statement from the label reads.
