As reported previously, Post Malone held a livestream concert last night for charity via his YouTube channel. He performed Nirvana “hits and fan favorites” while raising money for the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund. Among the musicians backing Post during the performance is Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker. Throughout the show, Google will match all donations at up to $5 million, with all proceeds going to the UN Foundation. Not only did Posty have Kurt Cobain widow and co-estate executor Courtney Love’s blessing, Nirvana member Krist Novoselic watched the stream and tweeted his support and delight at the covers. Watch now!
