Despite widespread shutdowns of large gatherings due to the coronavirus, Bernie Sanders is bringing people together to campaign for a new future (through screens).

The presidential hopeful hosted a digital rally on Monday (March 16), with a number of high-profile performance from My Morning Jacket’s Jim James, the Free Nationals, Neil Young and his wife Daryl Hannah.

The rally comes on the eve of another group of important primaries, with Arizona, Florida, Illinois and Ohio residents heading to the polls.

See below for the full livestream, and our list of musical moments from Sanders' digital rally.

Jim James

The crooner opened the show with what appeared to be a Bernie-themed new song. Guitar in hand, he proclaimed in the lyrics: "Most politicians bought and sold, they forgot about real love / They only need their pockets filled, they don't care about our blood / I think you know how this story goes, and it's an ending you won't like/ Fire and brimstone, an ocean of blood and bullets raining down." He repeats "Bring the power back home" in the chorus.

"I really feel like Bernie is someone who puts his money where his mouth is and wants to bring people together," the crooner explained, before performing My Morning Jacket's politically-charged "I'm Amazed" and his own "Here in Spirit."

Neil Young & Daryl Hannah

On guitar and harmonica, Young delivered "Heart of Gold," before Hannah joined him for a shout-out to the presidential hopeful. "Thank you for your compassion and your vision and your consistency and your leadership," Hannah said, before the duo encouraged viewers to vote for "President Bernie Sanders."

Free Nationals

The group delivered an explosive, high-energy performance, opening with their cozy tune "Shibuya," before delving into a masterful "instrumental joint for Bernie." The group then performed renditions of their songs "Eternal Light" and "Gidget."
