Janelle Monáe To Headline Verizon’s "Pay It Forward" Livestream
Taking place tonight, eight-time GRAMMY-nominated artist Janelle Monáe is set to perform on Verizon’s "Pay It Forward Live" streaming event. The series of livestreamed performances, presented by Verizon to support small businesses nationwide that have been impacted by COVID-19, has previously featured at-home sets from the likes of Dave Matthews and Billie Eilish and her brother, Finneas.
Fans will be able to catch the live performance in the comfort of their homes, beginning at 8 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time on Verizon’s social-media channels. Alternatively, the event stream will also be available on SiriusXM and iHeartRadio.
In a statement regarding the event and its proceeds, Monáe said, "We need to make sure we are surrounding all small businesses – especially black and LGBTQ owned – with support and love so that they can open their doors again one day soon."
For each use of the hashtag #PayItForwardLive during the event, Verizon will donate $10, up to a maximum of $2.5 million to small businesses.
