As we reported last week, Post Malone decided to pay tribute to one of his musical icons while also looking to raise as much money as possible to help the ongoing fight against Covid-19, by performing a host of Nirvana covers from the comfort of his Salt Lake City home, on Youtube.
Helped by Blink 182’s Travis Barker on drums, Malone has since generated more than $4 million in just three short days.
All the proceeds raised by the concert will go to the United Nations Foundation’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organization, which is a newly-created charity that uses funds to help train and equip communities to detect and fight off the virus. YouTube will also be matching all funds raised by Malone’s concert.
Kurt Cobain’s widow, Courtney Love threw her support behind the gig on social media with a couple of instagram posts, while former Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic also tweeted his appreciation.
This month marks the 26th anniversary of Cobain’s death by suicide and it is believed part of Malone’s reasoning for performing the tribute is to pay his respects to the former Nirvana frontman and the legacy that he left.
