Due to the Corona outbreak across the world, many countries are on lockdown and people are socially distancing and self-isolating to help prevent the spread of the virus (as you should;)).
However, it’s not all doom and gloom! We are blessed by the internet and social media during these times, and there are numerous ways to still stay connected. We have noticed some interesting examples of how influencers thought out of the box to connect with their audiences and spread positivity.
@ChiaraFerragni and @Fedez
Italian most popular influencer and her rapper husband join numerous Italians on their balconies daily to support their country, sing together and find solace in knowing no one is alone. Fedez is doing live musical sessions with his fellow Italian musicians, streamed across social media while also connected to speakers so all the neighbors can enjoy and dance on their balconies. Let’s just say Andrea Bocelli is one of those who joined him. (Oh, and by the way, they raised 4 million euros already to help Italian hospitals).
