Niall Horan joined in on the Together, At Home: WHO-Global Citizen Solidarity Sessions on Thursday (March 19), delivering a half-hour mini concert to ease our minds during this turbulent time.

The former One Direction crooner opened his Instagram Live session by urging his fans to stay home, wash their hands and stay away from others. He mentioned his 89-year-old grandmother, who is the most vulnerable to the coronavirus, and how his "family is talking to her through the window of her house and on the phone."

Horan then played a six-song set, which included songs from his debut album ("This Town," "Flicker" and "Slow Hands") and songs from his brand new project Heartbreak Weather ("No Judgement," "Nice to Meet Ya" and "Black and White").

He even strummed a quick line from James Arthur's "Say You Won't Let Go," at the request of the British crooner himself in the comments.

Horan's live stream comes following similar ones from Chris Martin, John Legend and Charlie Puth. Later today, Common will perform via Instagram at 2:30 PST. On Friday (March 20), Hozier will livestream at 12 p.m. PST, followed by OneRepublic at 1 p.m. PST.
