shared stories book

Protests and demonstrations for life sprout from windows and balconies all throughout the world. People – who are isolated – unite under a common goal: to fight the coronavirus. Collective singing blends with the songs of birds in Brazil, Mexico, Spain, Greece, Ireland... 

 

These are examples of the repertoire of sounds that is being created during the COVID-19 pandemic, as many cities have to socially isolate to fight the virus. The project is #StayHomeSounds and it has recordings from all over the world. You can also send yours.


Entertainment as a stimulus for people to stay at home and Verizon knows it, which is why it created with PayItForward LIVE. Every Thursday, some of the top musicians, like Dave Matthews Band, Alicia Keys and Billie Eilish, among others, sing from their homes and help collect donations to support small businesses impacted by the pandemic in the United States.
