Watch the People Supporting Artists Telethon for COVID-19 Relief

Tomorrow night, April 11, at 7pm EST, a great lineup of artists will be performing in a streamed telethon to raise money for MusiCares’ COVID-19 Relief Fund.

Called The People Supporting Artists (PSA) Telethon, the event will be livestreamed from Nashville and will include performances by Rosanne Cash & John Leventhal, John Oates, Lee Brice, Los Lobos, Jonathan Wilson, Molly Tuttle, Soccer Mommy, Keb Mo, Shovels & Rope, and dozens more. You can view the show directly on Reverb's Facebook page, where we'll be simulcasting the telethon.

As PSA writes, "A small group of artists and players are supported by their record labels and publishing companies, but the majority are not. With that in mind, we are rallying together to raise funds to support these middle class musicians who are out of work."

It's a great example of established artists joining forces to support those struggling in the face of worldwide tour cancellations and venue closures. While the telethon is free to watch, viewers will be encouraged to donate throughout the event.

PSA writes, "100% of the profits from this Telethon will be sent to the MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund after the event. A basic production and operating budget will be deducted as costs for PSA, to ensure that our other creative community members (who are not eligible for MusiCares) are supported as well."
