Morris explained, “My Vision for Funk Corona hit me at 3am while watching CNN News. I was looking at all the confirmed cases, and confirmed deaths from this virus, and knew that something more had to be done. I was watching how the nurses and doctors on the frontline were risking their own lives day in and day out, without proper PPE and lack of rest. All in the name of saving the lives of our love ones. So at that moment, I decide I would do my part."

He continued, "I hopped up and said F%#K Corona! Then the lightbulb went off and I said wait, “Funk Corona”.. A concert extravaganza of some of the biggest and most legendary Funk Bands in the game- would come together to raise money for the workers on the frontline, so that they have proper safety equipment to continue to do the remarkable job they are already doing for America. That’s what “Funk Corona” is all about.”

The event will be live-streamed with all artists socially distancing.
