Billie Eilish is no longer on the road due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but the pop superstar did participate in Global Citizen's historic "One World: Together at Home" concert, which aired on Saturday (April 18) was dedicated to supporting the frontline healthcare workers and the WHO.
For her inclusion in the two-hour televised special, which was co-hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon and Stephen Colbert, the chart-topper teamed up with her brother/right-hand producer FINNEAS to gift the world with a rendition of Bobby Hebb's 1963 jazz anthem "Sunny." "I love this song. It always warms my heart. It made me feel good. I wanted to make you guys feel good, so here we go," Eilish said before she kicked off the track. In typical Billie fashion, the star delivered some delicate vocals with FINNEAS on piano as she grooved to the melody.
Among the other stars who also were recruited for the virtual concert include event curator Lady Gaga, Elton John, Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder, The Beckhams, Oprah Winfrey and Samuel L. Jackson and Taylor Swift.
Eilish has done her part to flatten the curve in recent weeks. However, her time at her parents' home in Los Angeles, also prompted the star to foster two pitbull puppies, one of which she is keeping for herself. Earlier this week, Eilish revealed on her Instagram Stories that she adopted the canine. "This little mama also got a different forever home!! & is going to live the happiest life," the singer wrote on the social media platform. "As for this little nameless monkey... you are miiiiiiiiiine!!!"
Prior to the "One World: Together at Home" broadcast, over $50 million has been raised to fight the coronavirus pandemic. Click here for more information on how you can help!
