Katy Perry to Perform in Honor of Service Members This Memorial Day
Katy Perry fans can look forward to a live performance from the singer on Memorial Day this year. Perry is honoring service members and first responders as part of a benefit concert.
The singer shared a promo for the concert on Twitter Friday, and encouraged fans to tune in to Monday night’s livestream as part of Side by Side: A Celebration of Service, by Northwell Health.
Katy Perry to Perform on Memorial Day
The concert will stream on the Northwell Health YouTube channel, Monday night at 7 p.m. ET. You can go here to set a reminder for the event, which will be hosted by Alfonso Ribeiro. Other performers for the show include Ne-Yo and Gavin DeGraw.
The video Perry posted to promote the event features an instrumental piano rendition of her song “Firework.” The clip depicts members of the military, as well as first responders, reminding viewers, “While the world stood still, our heroes did not.”
Perry also shared a link to donate to support veterans and their families through Northwell Health. It’s not clear what songs Perry will perform during Monday’s concert, although based on the video, “Firework” might be one of them.
Perry’s History of Patriotic Performances
Perry has a history of performing during patriotic events. Earlier this year, she sang “Firework” in front of the Washington Monument to celebrate the inauguration of President Joe Biden. Previously, she performed at the Kids’ Inaugural Concert for President Barack Obama in 2013.
The singer has also worn plenty of outfits inspired by the American flag. Even her dress for this year’s inauguration performance featured blue and red accents on white fabric. We wonder what she’ll be wearing for this latest Memorial Day performance.
Perry recently showed a more stripped-down side to her talent during the American Idol finale in an acoustic performance with contestant Hunter Metts. Maybe she’ll keep that vibe for Monday’s concert.
