Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has us all stuck indoors.
On March 16, 2020, President Rodrigo Duterte declared the entire Luzon area in the Philippines under "enhanced community quarantine." Stringent physical distancing is implemented to slow the spread of the sickness. This has led to the cancellation of many large cultural gatherings such as concerts and even movie screenings.
Music venues are on lock down across the Philippines, prompting musicians to connect with their fans by performing online.
On the bright side, there are loads of brand new music and live concerts via livestream that you can watch from the safety of your couch on your own TV, computer or phone.
Watch this space for announcements regarding concerts that you can watch online during the quarantine period:
Today, April 1, ABS-CBN Music will launch its digital concert series called All Music: Artists at Home Sessions.
This online concert will be hosted by MYX Philippines VJs and MOR 101.9 For Life DJs.
Enjoy free concerts daily starting tonight at 8 p.m.
Jake Zyrus, Ana Ramsey, and Lani Misalucha are the artists lined up for the first episode of All Music: Artists at Home Sessions. Watch them on Star Music PH's Facebook and YouTube Channel.
As cases rise in the Philippines, medical workers urge the public to donate medical supplies.
To support this worthy cause, Lazada is hosting a virtual charity concert, #RadioGivesBack: A LazadaForGood Charity Concert From Home.
The virtual concert will take place on April 6 (Monday) at 5 p.m. The charity concert will be broadcast simultaneously through radio partners Magic 89.9, Jam 88.3, Wave 89.1 and Play 99.5. Lazada will also live-stream the concert on its app via LazLive.
Anyone using a web browser can also watch the concert through this website.
The proceeds for the donation will go to various donation partners of Lazada. The donations will go towards providing relief kits, food bags, personal protective equipment and more to our medical frontliners, street kids, and daily wage earners.

As of March 31, advocacy partners received a total of P10,700,242.
Philippine National Artist for Music Ryan Cayabyab spearheaded the Bayanihan Musikahan Facebook Live Video Concerts in March in order to raise funds for the most vulnerable sectors in the country.
The fundraiser gathers Pinoy musical artists online through marathon singing, “as a way to bring the nation together in the spirit of Bayanihan and to direct it towards aiding our most vulnerable communities."
The group also aims to aid local government units in creating barangay quarantine spaces to stave off contagion and to augment the medical services infrastructure of Metro Manila—if necessary provided by volunteer medical professionals from the same or nearby barangays.
As of April 2, donations have reached P22,373,178. They will be used to provide food and health protection packs for the urban poor.
