Many of the music world’s biggest stars came together for Global Goal: Unite for Our Future this past weekend, in Global Citizen’s star-studded virtual concert that spanned the globe to recognize communities disproportionately affected by the pandemic. Classic songs were covered, huge hits were revisited and artists spoke out to raise awareness as well as bring in a whopping $6.9 billion in pledges from the event.
Kesha gave an emotional performance of her song Rainbow during the Global Pride 2020 virtual event. Kesha said I really do believe that you are the future. You inspire me with your energy, your heart, your voices and the way you take action. Global Pride brought some celebratory vibes to the LGBTQ+ community while in-person Pride Month events were canceled amid the pandemic.
Virtual performances by Kelly Clarkson, Josh Groban, CeeLo Green and more during a KTLA telethon helped bring in about $700,000 for Project Angel Food’s COVID-19 emergency fund. The telethon aired over the weekend with musical performances from Clarkson, Groban, Billy Idol, Kristin Chenoweth and more. Project Angel Food has been cooking and delivering medically-tailored meals, free of charge, to people with life-threatening illnesses who are at high risk for COVID-19, serving 2,000 people each day.

We did it! You did it! Our original goal for the “Lead With Love” Telethon last night on @ktla5news was $500,000. Once we reached that we revised it to $600,000, then $650,000. And now we just reached $700,000! Thank you to the 1,318 people who donated last night. Longtime supporters including @officialretrouve for putting us over the top! Plus, @ktla5news viewers and anyone new who heard about us and gave during extremely difficult times. We are beyond grateful!
Natasha Bedingfield recorded Together in This as a the end title track for the animated Jungle Beat: The Movie and her music video certainly tied it all together with its main message. The song consoles listeners who think they have to tackle adversities on their own but don’t have to. And for the better portion of the video, no one has to dance along either. Bedingfield said the new song extends beyond friendship and connects to allyship, an incredibly relevant topic during the Black Lives Matter movement and Pride Month. Jungle Beat: The Movie is available on digital streaming services now.
