Please stay home, stay safe. (and don’t actually go over!)”
“Endlessly grateful for the bravery and selflessness of people on the frontlines,” Ballerini shared on Twitter. She went on to thank Saxe and Michaels for letting her take part in the “lovely tribute.”
All proceeds received by Sony Music and the artists resulting from the video will be donated to Doctors Without Borders.
