Nearly a year after YUNGBLUD’s first episode of “The YUNGBLUD Show” on YouTube, the 23-year made the show come back, but this time with a YouTube Music Nights livestream to benefit the NIVA Emergency Relief Fund. Over 43,000 people tuned in live to the stream last night on YUNGBLUD’s Official YouTube channel, which has now been viewed over 290k times so far!
It’s crazy how a year ago, the show was originally one of the first livestream shows of the pandemic.
During the livestream, YUNGBLUD sang with Tommy Lee and Dave Navarro, Avril Lavigne, Machine Gun Kelly, and had rising artist renforshort perform her song, “i drive me mad.” Other special guests included LILHUDDY and KSI, for some fun skits!
The YouTube Giving “donate button” appeared on the watch page during YUNGBLUD’s livestream, making it easy for fans to support the NIVA Emergency Relief Fund, which benefits independent music venues impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
But if you missed the stream and would still like to donate, don’t worry! YUNGBLUD released an LTD shirt, available HERE, with all proceeds going to the NIVA fund.
Recalling his first livestream performance of 2020 before the show, YUNGBLUD said, “This was a monumental moment in my career. It became bigger than any of us ever anticipated. I’m craving to get back on stage every single day and can’t wait to do this with some incredible guests. It’s been so hard for independent venues. I wanted to partner with NIVA because independent venues are the backbone of the music industry and give young artists the chance to have their music heard. everyone has been missing a rock n roll show, I think it’s about time we gave them one!”
