ICYMI: Neil Young Performs At Bernie Sanders Digital Rally
Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders isn't letting the coronavirus pandemic stop him from reaching his followers. The senator held his first-ever live digital rally on Monday, March 16, featuring Neil Young, among other music artists.
The GRAMMY-winning singer/songwriter joined Jim James of My Morning Jacket and the Free Nationals as musical guests of the livestream where Sanders, his National Co-Chair Nina Turner and more gave speeches.
Young performed "Heart Of Gold" and, along with his wife, actress Daryl Hannah, shared some words for the Democratic candidate. "We are here for you, Bernie," he said. "We support you 100 percent." He also thanked the senator for his "focus" and said "the soul of what you are behind is so great."
Young also had a message for families staying home as the coronavirus pandemic rises: "We really are with you."
