John Legend is joining forces with Ryan Seacrest and helping pay tribute to the incredible first responders who are risking their lives everyday on the frontlines of the Coronavirus pandemic with a special performance during tonight's iHeartRadio's First Responder Fridays with FirstNet Built with AT&T.
The EGOT-winning artist Zoomed with Seacrest on-air on Friday and shared he’s honored to pay tribute to those sacrificing their lives for others.
“I think the scariest and most harrowing thing about it is for theses medical professionals who might be exposed to the virus every day and can’t really be close to their families,” Legend said. “We actually feature one of those people in our video that’s coming out,” he added of new track “Bigger Love.” “It’s really a celebration of love and of life and we got all these videos from different people submitted all over the world and you just see how difficult it is for them to be around so much pain and suffering and sometimes death."
Legend previously announced his forthcoming new album during the star-studded #TogetherAtHome benefit concert.
“We don’t know what’s going to happen with the tour and all these other things,” he added. “But we can at least give the music to listen to.”
He’s also got his hands full at home with kids Luna, 4, and Miles, 1. The Grammy-winning artist and wife Chrissy Teigen have been keeping fans equally entertained on social media, sharing their time at home with fans.
“[We’re] just trying to find creative ways to entertain the kids,” he admitted. “[It’s] been exciting. Chrissy bought camping equipment so we can camp in the backyard; we’ve done a fake wedding for Luna’s stuffed animals — it’s been wild times,” he jokingly concluded.
