The "One Wave: concert will be streaming live on YouTube and Twitter and will transform Legend into a digital avatar of a virtual world. Fans will have the chance to socialize and interact with Legend and all are welcome to join the virtual dance floor.
In an interview with People, Legend says:
"This video was made to celebrate our shared love, hope and resilience. We're all using technology to stay in touch and finding creative ways to cope and we wanted the video to be a big musical hug for people around the world who are finding ways to stay connected to family, help their neighbors and make time for a needed dance break despite the crazy circumstances we find ourselves in. I just hope it gives people a moment to feel good. I know things are very difficult and a bit scary right now and music isn't going to solve everyone's problems, but hopefully it can give people a bit of a lift and bring some light to these dark times."
Legend isn't the only one set to headline a virtual concert. People revealed that more performers are slated to be announced throughout the summer.
Legend's "One Wave" virtual concert streams Thursday, June 25th at 6 p.m. ET/3 p.m. PT on YouTube and Twitter.
