A lot of shared content on social networks has to do with the music. Playlists are everywhere, and many times arise from the most unexpected situations. When publicizing the news about the first cases of celebrities with Covid-19, one of them hit strong: the pair of actors formed by Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, is his work in Australia.

Tom was shooting a film about Elvis —that still has no official title and that makes it the manager of the artist, Rita had been presented at the Sydney Opera Hall. In the centre of the quarantine to which it is submitted, Rita tweeted a request: he needed help to put together a list of songs to help you cope with the isolation. Tweeters of the world responded to his call and selected a community, the name of the playlist and each one of the topics that compose it.

The songs that make it up are in the course of the tone, including: Tired of being the only Green, All by me Céline Dion, If I could go back in time Cher, I’m still standing Elton John, I will survive Gloria Gaynor, Survived Destiny’s Child Don t stand so close to me Police, etc…. But already they are beginning to realize the style, it is not true?

Many artists also offered live concerts via streaming among them, Alejandro Sanz and Juanes together, or the challenge of #TogetherAtHome of the Global Citizen, which was attended by Chris Martin of Coldplay, John Legend, The Lumineers, Charlie Puth, Shawn Mendes, Camila Cabello and many others.

Even if it is difficult to believe, not everything is information and updates on the covid-19. Another strategy to stay clear and free from an excess of information that has to do with our favorite artists.

Brandon Flowers has done the same with its classic Mr. Brightsidefor all fans of The Killers.

Another social network that works great to relax the mind is Tik Tok, widely used by teenagers, which in just a few seconds, depict scenes of pop culture. Many YouTubers and actors or actresses who have joined her long ago, and others have taken advantage of the quarantine to do so.

Justin Bieber and his wife, Hailey Baldwin, devotes the free time to upload the choreography, while Mariah Carey made hilarious video with their children.
