Foo Fighters (opens in new tab) leader Dave Grohl (opens in new tab) was just one of the guests on iHeart’s Living Room Concert For America which was broadcast last night.

Elton John (opens in new tab) hosted the event, with other artists including Green Day (opens in new tab)’s Billie Joe Armstrong taking part to raise funds for Feeding America (opens in new tab) and the First Responders Children’s Foundation (opens in new tab) in light of the coronavirus pandemic.

Grohl gave an acoustic performance of The Color And The Shape track My Hero, introducing the song by saying: “I hope everyone is staying healthy. If you love someone, let them know. If you’re thankful for someone tell them. I’d like to dedicate this song to all the people out there on the frontlines that are doing their best to get us through all of this.”

Armstrong performed an acoustic version of the Green Day classic Boulevard Of Broken Dreams – a performance which also starred his dogs.

The concert is being streamed continuously and can be watched below along with Grohl and Armstrong’s individual performances.
