Ukraine is still under attack by Russian forces as civilians take shelter in shelters. Meanwhile, across the globe there is huge international support for the war-torn nation. Funds are also being raised to help Ukraine with food and other medical supplies to deal with the aftermath of war.
In an attempt to draw the attention of the international community to help Ukraine and its citizens during the crisis, a charity concert was organized with musicians joining hands to help the cause of war refugees. Illia Bondarenko was playing the violin from an air-raid shelter, which appears to have displaced millions of people around the world. 94 artists performed a Ukrainian folk song.
Ed Sheeran, Camila Cabello and Snow Patrol were among the famous artists who took part in an online concert for charity towards Ukraine. Cabello and Sheeran performed their song Bam Bam for the first time at Concert for Ukraine and garnered love from their fans. Using their Instagram handles, the popular musicians even called on their fans to donate to the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) for the Ukrainian people.
On the other hand, Ed Sheeran also performed his other popular songs, namely Perfect and Bad Habits, while Cabello set the stage on fire with his performance of Coldplay’s Fix You. According to a report by ET Canada, the event, Resorts World Arena, raised £12.2 million for the DEC to support those affected by war in Ukraine.
After her performance ended, Cabello said, “We are all praying tonight for the peace and safety of the people of Ukraine. Thank you so much for being part of this super important fundraiser and donating all you can.”
