Erykah Badu to Charge Fans $1 to Live Stream a Concert at Her Houseby GDN Shared Post March 20, 2020
Dallas, TX — Singer-songwriter Erykah Badu has announced that she is planning to perform a concert through a live stream from her bedroom in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. The event will cost $1 each to fans who want to watch and have a chance to pick what songs she will perform.
“Peace and love. The show must go on,” Badu said in an Instagram video. “Introducing the quarantine concert series live from my bedroom. We will be performing here live this weekend.”
The Grammy Award-winning singer was originally set to do a concert tour in different states from February to November 2020 but was canceled due to the coronavirus.
As an alternative, Badu decided to live stream a concert from her bedroom in Dallas, Texas. The interactive Apocalypse One event will include a poll where attendees who paid their $1 admission could choose which songs she will perform.
Prior to Badu, some artists like John Legend and Chris Martin also did a live stream concert for their fans for free.
Last week, Badu also caught public attention when she received the Filmmakers & Soundtrack Award at Texas Film Awards wearing a hazmat suit with Louis Vuitton logo, which she called “social distancing couture” in her Instagram post.
