Reportedly, over 100,000 people watched Legend perform, and he spoke about the importance of everyone doing things differently because of the coronavirus.

“That was pretty cool,” Legend told CBS This Morning about the number of people who watched the Instagram show. “The message we’re trying to get out to people is, one, as much as you can stay home and stay away from physical contact with other people, [do it].”

“And then, secondly, if you have the means to help support other people that are going through a tougher time than you are, then try to do so,” he added.

In regards to Badu, she said there will be more details provided about her livestream concert soon.

“We gone pull it off. We gone be calm,” she captioned her video. “You gone help me make it happen. Can’t do it without you.”
