The event raised $750,000 for Feeding America and the WHO’s COVID-19 Response Fund. Guetta’s contribution matched every single dollar donated.
Guetta said, “As a DJ, the crowd is the most important part of any show. Even though we can’t be together in a club or at a festival, we can use this time to come together in new ways and help those who need it most.”
The Grammy award winning DJ is now back with the second installment of his “United at Home” concert. Guetta connected with fans and raised money for health care workers and virus relief efforts. The show began after New York’s “daily clap” at 7 PM which acknowledges front line and healthcare workers.
Guetta’s dedication to George Floyd
David Guetta started off the event with a dedication to George Floyd. he dedicated his hit number, ‘Without You’ in honor of the late football player.
George Floyd passed away on Monday after 4 policemen arrested him for an alleged case of forgery. One of the policemen kneeled down on his neck until he choked to death. This incident led to the Black Lives Matter protests raging across the US. Thousands have come out on the streets expressing their anger against the injustice that the African-Americans are subjected to.
“I’m just asking everyone to have a little thought for George Floyd and his family and hope that this will never, ever, happen again,”Guetta said.
The concert helped in raising money for the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City and other COVID-19 relief charities. Proceeds also went to Foundation Hôpitaux de Paris-Hôpitaux de France.
“New York is one of my favorite cities and it’s an honor to be able to do something to help the city during this difficult time,” Guetta said. The performance is available on Guetta’s social media channels
