NOVA Entertainment announced the launch of Nova and smoothfm’s Thank You Concert, which will acknowledge the incredible work, and share the stories, of those working in essential services who are keeping the community safe and running during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Nova and smoothfm are working with music label partners to deliver an exclusive live streamed music event to recognise and say thank you to Australia’s front-line workers on Saturday 20 June, and will provide an opportunity for listeners to nominate and share the story of someone they know who has been working at the forefront of COVID-19 and put them forward to experience the concert.
NOVA Entertainment’s Chief Programming & Marketing Officer, Paul Jackson, said, “This special live stream music event has been created to celebrate our essential workers and all that they have done to help Australians during this global health crisis. We are so grateful that the artists involved are so giving of their time, showing their Australian fans how much they mean to them.
“It is Nova and smoothfm’s way of allowing listeners to say thank you to special people in their lives – through a music experience curated especially for them. Together with live performances, exclusive interviews and reliving some of the best moments from Nova’s Red Room and smooth Feel Good Night With, Nova and smoothfm’s Thank You Concert is set to be one special event.”
Hosted by Kent ‘Smallzy’ Small and Richard Wilkins, artists will donate their time to perform exclusively, or share their experiences in intimate interviews and messages, for guests attending this unique event.
Keith Urban, Amy Shark, Katy Perry, Ed Sheeran and Michael Bublé are the first of over 20 artists involved, with further artists to be announced every day from 3pm on Nova and smoothfm.
The full line-up will be revealed in Nova’s Kate, Tim & Marty drive show and with Simon Diaz on smoothfm on Friday 5 June from 3pm.
