Post Malone Raises A Ton Of Cash For COVID-19 Relief With Nirvana Concert
(AllHipHop News) Post Malone’s virtual Nirvana tribute concert on Friday night raised over $500,000 for the United Nations Foundation’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund.
The rapper, who is a die-hard fan of Kurt Cobain’s band, was joined remotely by Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker and two musician pals for the charity jam.
“What’s up, party people,” Malone said at the top of the live-streamed show. “We’re gonna play some Nirvana for you, and have some fun, and hopefully I don’t f##k up… Thank you to the gentlemen who wrote these beautiful songs.”
The 80-minute set featured several tracks from Nirvana’s classic album Nevermind, including "Lithium," "Drain You," and "Come As You Are," as well as "Very Ape," "Heart-Shaped Box," and "About a Girl."
Cobain’s widow Courtney Love gave the rap star her blessing to perform her late husband’s songs before the event went live and Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic live-tweeted during the live stream.
“I don’t think these fellows can play any better. They are on fire…!,” he tweeted. “I am holding emotions back the whole show.”
