The Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter has plans to host a live concert on Saturday, March 21!
Performances, concerts, and music festivals have been postponed or canceled in an effort to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus, leaving millions of people without plans as they adjust to a new lifestyle. Luckily, living in the age of the internet has its advantages. Famed performer, Jewel, is hosting a virtual concert to help fans lift their spirits while also raising money for her charity!
The American singer had to recently cancel a fundraiser which was set to fund nearly 80% of her foundation’s budget; the Inspiring Children Foundation helps at-risk youth with housing, food, clothing, necessities, and mentoring, as well as physical, emotional, mental, and health tools.
