Covid-19 has got us all missing going to concerts. How we wish we can experience them again. It’s always so fun, unless you have to stand for 4 hours in which case, I’ve been there, not fun.
Anyways, with the current situation right now, we can’t have live concerts but thanks to technology, more artists are considering of doing virtual live concerts! Sure, it may not be the same but the fact that our favourite musicians still want to put on a show for us, that’s got to be worth our time.
Reported by New Straits Times, our very own Yunalis Zara’ai (famously known as Yuna) will take centerstage with Zainalabidin and Resh in a virtual concert this Sunday at 3pm on Facebook Live for the Roar For Life 2020. Other artistes set to perform include Alena Murang, Kyoto Protocol, Kumpulan Dikir Barat Arjunasukma and Dance World Cup 2019 Champion SK Stella Maris Dance Trio from Sabah.
This concert is part of the month-long “Save the Malayan Tiger” campaign for the Global Tiger Day celebration which was launched via Facebook Live on July 29. In partnership with Maybank,the 2 hour concert is organised by WWF Malaysia and will be hosted by TV host Azura Zainal and stand-up comedian Douglas Lim.
The depleting number of Malayan tigers is a major ecosystem threat which needs to be addressed immediately, according to Maybank Foundation CEO Shahril Azuar Jimin said. Through Maybank and WWF Malaysia’s partnership, they remain committed in their efforts to save the Malayan tigers while navigating through the challenges arising from the Covid-19 pandemic.
“The concert which goes live on the eve of Merdeka serves as an excellent opportunity for everyone to be entertained by leading artistes as well as learn more on how they can actively play a role in saving the Malayan tigers,” he added.
“The pledge to Save the Malayan tiger is an ongoing mission and we want as many, or rather every Malaysian to sign the pledge,” said Sophia Lim, executive director/CEO of WWF Malaysia.
She then added that they hope that through this virtual concert they can reach out to more. The bigger the voice, the more resolve behind this call to save the Harimau, and they hope that this will be made a priority on the national agenda.
