For Jon Bellion, a talented Grammy Award-winner from Long Island, 2019 was a great year. He performed in front of packed houses at The Paramount in Huntington and at Jones Beach.
Then the pandemic hit and live music came to a screeching halt.
“It's scary…You think of every venue in the nation that hasn't played music in months. We are talking thousands, hundreds of thousands of people out of work,” Bellion told News 12.
The 29-year-old got creative and decided to perform a live virtual concert on Dec. 10. Bellion says 100% of the profit from the concert will go to his bandmates and live-show workers.
“Whoever bought a ticket, just know that it's going to helping literally these men and their families pay for their holiday season or pay for their rent or their house,” he said.
The virtual concert is happening on Long Island at Cove City Sound Studios, owned by legendary musician Richie Cannata.
In addition to his catalog, Bellion says he plans on performing songs that he wrote for other artists that became Top 10 hits.
“It's a blessing during the holiday season to be able to put together something that could potentially help people through such a tough time,” said Bellion.
