Fisher’s first song was an appropriately timed, invigorating anthem that reassured his viewers despite his performance’s technical difficulties and the unsettling time the coronavirus has put the world in: Everything will “Be Okay.”
“The life that we’re all living right now and the space that we’re in, we have to be OK with just existing and finding contentment and satisfaction,” the 25-year-old star stated. After spending nearly a year away from his home in Los Angeles, Fisher felt more than happy to stay at home with his fiancée Ellie Woods.
“I spent the majority of my year last year in Canada filming different movies, so I wasn’t able to be home a lot,” the To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You star told his fans. “And this year as well, I’ve been in New York working on Broadway since January, but I started our rehearsal process in December. And then I was supposed to be there from December all the way through May and then go back to Vancouver and film another movie. And then we’re getting married in July and then leave again to film another movie. So the fact that I get to be home right now — it’s a real blessing in disguise.”
Considering his ultra-busy schedule remains incomplete, Fisher keeps himself busy by playing piano (“It’s meditation for me,” he said while caressing the instrument behind him), cooking, watching movies and streaming games every day on his Twitch channel. But when the lights turn back on Broadway, the Dear Evan Hansen actor will be more than prepared to hit the stage.
“Broadway’s going to be back, better and stronger than ever. And we all will be too, because we will all have gotten lots of rest and been able to spend time at home with family,” he reassured those tuning in who’ve yet to see his musical.
In the meantime, Fisher shared an important save the date with fans — not his summer wedding day, but the release date for his latest single “Walking on the Ceiling,” which he plans to drop at midnight ET Monday night. Fisher leaked “Walking” via Twitch on Sunday but performed the twinkling trap-tinged song in full to wrap his Billboard Live At-Home performance, which fans can watch above while also donating to MusiCares here.
