Kacey Musgraves offered fans a glimmer of hope with a performance of her uplifting song, “Rainbow,” during the star-studded One World: Together at Home special on Saturday (April 18).
Before performing the heartfelt song from her home, Musgraves took a moment to show her gratitude to those working on the front lines during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“I just wanted to say a sincere thank you to all the people out there risking their lives to get everyone through this crazy time. Thank you, it means so much to me,” she shared.
The Grammy-winning singer/songwriter went on to explain why she chose to sing “Rainbows.”
“I’ve also been really loving seeing everyone’s rainbows in their windows. It’s inspired me to sing this song for you,” she said, referring the current social movement that encourages people to put handmade rainbows in their front windows to show support for those affected by the virus.
“Rainbow” appears on Musgraves’ award-winning Golden Hour album, which was released in the spring of 2018.
One World: Together at Home was curated by Lady Gaga and put together in an effort to show unity among people across the world who are affected by COVID-19, as well as celebrate and support the courageous frontline health care workers around the world who are doing incredible, life-saving work. The special aired live on Saturday, April 18 on ABC, NBC, ViacomCBS Networks, and iHeartMedia, as well as Bell Media networks and platforms in Canada.
