Award-winning violinist and electronic artist Lindsey Stirling is stepping onto WAVE's virtual stage for a live concert! On Thursday August 20th at 3:00 PM PT, Stirling will be virtually chatting with fans and performing in support of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Lindsey Stirling Live: The Artemis Reprise will stream on YouTube, Twitch and Facebook and feature the 'What You're Made Of' artist in a digital avatar form, using Wave's cutting-edge broadcast technology.
Fans and viewers will have the opportunity to engage with Stirling through Wave's chat function, as well as donate directly to St. Jude through a customized GIF. Events like this help St. Jude support children in need and provide families with treatment, travel, housing and food while never giving them a bill. This interactive experience will feature Lindsey performing songs from her latest album, Artemis, along with her greatest hits.
On her partnership with St. Jude's for this concert, Lindsey shared that she makes it a point to perform at children's hospitals while on tour and considers the opportunity a gift.
When I'm tour I always take time to go and perform in the children's hospitals at whatever location I can along the way. It's something that I feel like is such a gift to me. Every time I step in those hospitals and get the gift to step in these children's rooms - I literally feel the presence of angels in there with these kids. I know that they are being looked after by sources that we can't even understand, and that gives me comfort.
Whatever little bit I can do to be a part of that whether it's a virtual concert or whether it's being able to show up and play them a song person to person, it's something that I want to continue to show up for.
Wave has hosted virtual concert experiences with chart topping global artists including John Legend, Tinashe and most recently they partnered with TikTok on a first-of-its kind immersive experience with The Weeknd. St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to more than 80 percent since the hospital opened more than 50 years ago. St. Jude won't stop until no child dies from cancer.
