Ghana Music Awards to honour frontline health workers with virtual concert
COVID-19, as we all know, has stolen our right to free movement and social gathering, and in some cases, the very lives of our dear ones.
The virus has thrown normal life out of the window, gripped man with immense fear and brought the leadership of a confident world to its knees, in search for answers.
Ghana’s steps in combating the virus have been remarkable, demonstrated by the shutting down of our borders, mandatory quarantine, partial lockdown, contact tracing, and the securing of logistics to empower frontline health workers to adequately deal with the virus.
While great leadership, and our united effort as a people has brought us this far, one cannot help but recognize the selfless and fearless efforts of the frontline health workers whose continuous fight against the virus has restored hope to all. They stand tall as the real heroes, and as such deserve to be celebrated.
To this end, the Ghana Music Awards Foundation would like to honour the frontline health workers with a virtual concert, dubbed the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards Covid-19 Heroes Concert. This program is slated for Sunday 17th May, 2020 airing live at 9:30pm on TV3 and on social media.
The program is also meant to inspire hope, support the fundraising effort of the Covid-19 National Trust Fund in support of the front-line health workers, and to lend a voice to the ‘Wear A Mask’ Campaign.
According to Robert Klah, PRO of Charterhouse, “Music is a force for good and on Sunday the 17th of May, we would like to use this music to rally a national applause for our frontline health workers. They are our heroes; we doff our hats to them”.
