Each year, children with cancer spend their holidays in bed: To show solidarity and raise funds, the Bedstock online music festival has recruited numerous A-list stars to perform songs from their own beds. Ed Sheeran, Nick Jonas, Ringo Starr and others have joined forces with the Children’s Cancer Association to perform sets today and viewers are urged to donate.
Bedstock is organized by the CCA’s MyMusicRx program, which harnesses the power of music to bring cheer and positivity to sick children. Bedstock 2017 promises to be “Bigger and Bedder” than the first three years of the festival.
Iron and Wine is just one of the acts that will perform today. Bandmember Sam Beam expressed his excitement in a statement to Billboard.
“Taking part in the Bedstock festival with MyMusicRx was an easy decision,” Beam said. “It’s a lovely cause with an important mission and I’m honored to help draw attention to their cause with a song. We also had a lot of fun filming the video. I didn’t even have to get out of bed!”
