Post Malone will cover Nirvana songs during a live stream Friday at 6 p.m. EDT on his YouTube channel.
In an announcement, Malone said he will perform a set of “Nirvana hits and fan favorites.”
The show will raise funds for the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organization.
For more info, fans can text 817-270-6440, a number Post Malone offered up on his social media pages earlier this week alongside the note, “text me.”
Fans will be able to donate to the fund via a button on the screen during the performance. Google will match viewer donations “at a 2:1 rate,” up to $5 million.
Post Malone is a huge Nirvana fan, who has previously covered “All Apologies” live. He also has a couple of Nirvana tattoos: His knuckles bear portraits of artists he admires who died at a young age, including Kurt Cobain, while the “Stay Away” tattooed on his forehead is a nod to the Nirvana song of the same name.
Courtney Love gave a shout-out to Posty for holding the benefit. “Thank you @postmalone @who (worldhealthorganization) & @google who will match 5 million $ in donations,” she wrote in an Instagram post. She also thanked her late husband for his music, noting how it continues to resonate through generations.
