On Saturday, March 21st, US country sensation and adopted Brit Sarah Darling united music fans across the globe for a live Facebook concert as the world continues to self-isolate and social distance in a bid to slow the spread of the novel Coronavirus (Covid-19) virus.
Sarah decided to give fans a little taste of a live gig via our virtual screens as concerts are not a viable option across the globe due to the worldwide pandemic for the foreseeable.
The show which was streamed live from the Nashville Departure Lounge saw Darling joined by renowned producer Cheyenne Medders, and singer/songwriter Tyler Flowers for a 10-song showcase that delighted viewers across the Internet as she performed a selection of tracks from her repetuour.
Opening with ‘Fire’ Sarah Darling allowed her vocal range to soar and fill the space as she made the intimate experience feel like a true live event.
Performing a selection of new and unreleased tracks such as the hauntingly beautiful ‘Hungover’, and the stunning ‘Waves’, she also gave listeners a glimpse at her forthcoming studio album which will begin recording as soon as the American artist is able to get in the studio safely.
Speaking candidly about how she is dealing with the global virus outbreak the sweet singer made sure fans knew this social isolation was for the greater good saying “most of us are lucky enough to be young and healthy, but for some this is life or death”.
A tender moment from Sarah before a selection of other standout hits such as ‘Divide’ and songs off her Campfire Sessions project; ‘Bring On The Rain’, and ‘Cowboy Take Me Away’.
We were also treated to a truly sublime version of Shania Twain’s ‘You’re Still The One’ – a truly memorable cover that is set to be officially released soon as part of the Campfire Sessions project.
Ending on a high she closed out her set with an encore of her breakout release ‘Halley’s Comet’ before announcing another Facebook concert will be taking place next Saturday, March 28th with a time to confirmed shortly.
This was a truly wonderful, and intimate concert which brought a much needed dose of live music into our lives just as we need it most and is now available to watch back via Facebook.
A virtual tip-jar for Sarah Darling, Cheyenne Medders, and Tyler Flowers has also been set up as the independent artist look to support their creative output during this tough and uncertain period.
