A long list of musicians from all over the world will be using their talents to help raise money for vulnerable Navajo and Hopi communities that have been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The concert will be hosted by the group Musicians Saving our Home Planet this Sunday from 3:45 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on their Facebook and YouTube platforms.

It is free of charge, but the group hopes people will donate money that will go toward helping those hit hard by the pandemic.

Cassandra Begay who helped found The Navajo and Hopi families COVID-19 Relief Fund Yee Ha’ólníi Doo says "to date the relief fund has safely delivered food, PPE, medical supplies, cleaning products, water, firewood and coal to 59,000 households averaging four people per home. With additional support, the fund and our army of volunteers will be able to continue our efforts."

The fundraising campaign was recently named one of GoFundMe’s top five most successful campaigns of 2020.

Jon Guggenheim said the virtual concert will feature musicians with big hearts who all want to help make our world a better place.

The line-up includes two-time Grammy-winning artist Fantastic Negrito, Eve Belle from Ireland, Native American flute player Mignon Geli, and many more.
