Things might be dire as the coronavirus pandemic sweeps the globe, but musicians attempted to bring a little bit of joy into fans' homes on Sunday (March 29) with the iHeart Living Room Concert for America. Elton John, looking dapper in a royal navy jacket and matching blue shirt, kicked off the live broadcast with an uplifting message to viewers.
"Here we are, all together at home. You've got your family and loved ones, and I've got mine close too. ... We're taking care of each other through this crisis," the five-time Grammy winner said. "Let me tell you what's going to keep us together: All the goodness that's happening in the world. There's doctors, nurses and scientists on the front lines. They're living proof that most superheroes don't wear capes."
He noted that families are finding ways to sing happy birthday to loved ones, and teachers are sending notes to their students despite being separated as people self-isolate to attempt to flatten the curve. "It's inspiring," the iconic performer added. "It shows us that once we get through these tough times, better days lie ahead."
