BALTIMORE, MD –
I know your phone has been blasting you notifications about somebody going live. The first couple of times I was a little annoyed but then, it changed.
As the live requests started coming in, I began clicking into them and honestly, I enjoyed it. People were just enjoying life and showing the world what they can do. It’s like a big a talent show.
John Legend, H.E.R, and other artists have been giving concerts on Instagram Live. Companies have been upping their digital content and have been broadcasting from all sorts of settings. Even through the darkness that our world is facing right now, we’ve still found a way to share a little light.
It’s really dope to see these powers used for good. Charles Porch, Instagram’s Head of Global Partnerships, thinks it promotes unity. “I think in times like this, and when times get tough, [celebrities are] turning to Instagram to connect with fans to, first, help get out really good information like washing your hands and staying home and the next phase now, which is coming together with the community,” Porch told NBC News.
Dear world, keep shining even when the skies are gray.
