With most musicians self-isolating, the prolific Charli XCX has turned her considerable energies toward a new daily show called “Self-Isolation IG Livestream,” a series of “daily online events, aimed at providing support to those currently self-isolating due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Taking place on Instagram live each day, starting from today (Wednesday, March 18), the singer will invite various guests to “spark conversation, share insight, or simply entertain fans across the world who are currently practicing social distancing.”
The show launches today at 12 pm ET/9 am PT and can be seen HERE.
The first show’s guest is Christine and the Queens, who joins Charli for “an open conversation about the current situation and how it can affect creativity and their mental health”;
On Thursday, Charli will link up with Diplo for a live-streamed personal training session, taking the importance of physical exercise in these limited times to the next level;
On Friday, Charli catches up with collaborator Rita Ora for a “Girls Night In”;
Saturday will see Kim Petras joining Charli for a game of ‘Would U Rather?’, allowing fans to “get to know the artists a little more than they imagined,”
Sunday will see a “therapeutic art class” with Clairo.
And more TBA.
The announcement emphasizes: “Viewers are encouraged to be as active in each event as possible, joining the conversation or taking part at home. Through the week’s entire program of online events, Charli will be looking to connect the online world and the real world through shared experience – spreading positivity via her own platform. We’re all in this together, so self-isolation doesn’t have to be isolating.
