They might be the cashier at the grocery store you just went to, or a co-worker of yours that you didn't even know had such a beautiful voice, they might be the person on the construction site you just walked by, the bartender at the local bar, or Uber driver who cheered you up on your last ride home before lockdown began", says Sunny He from LiveMe, "just because we're socially distancing doesn't mean we still can't be social".

"I’m super excited to be able to celebrate at this critical moment! I’m sure everyone will agree this festival is exactly what we all need to come together as a community and have a great time,  as the current COVID-19 pandemic continues to present a range of challenges in our daily lives." said Lindee Link, a music artist and LiveMe talent .
