Hallmark star Paul Greene has been performing online concerts on Facebook during the pandemic for charity. Last Sunday, he just aired Episode 151 of his Live Sunday Gospel series. He airs concerts on Friday nights too. Here’s how you can watch them and make sure you don’t miss any.
His First Concert Had 150,000 Viewers & He’s Hosted More than 100 Since
Greene started the Facebook concerts when fans asked him to sing some songs before an episode of When Calls the Heart, where he plays Dr. Carson Shepherd, he told People. The first concert had 150,000 viewers, and he knew he couldn’t stop after that. You can view his 151st Sunday Gospel concert in the video above.
He told People: “We saw that there was a real audience because nobody could leave the house. We wanted to create some entertainment, connection and share the love.”
He’s been hosting concerts on Friday and Sunday nights. For the Sunday concerts, Greene asks for donations to a charity. The charity he’s focusing on for his December concerts is St. Jude Children’s Hospital, he told People.
“I am hoping to raise $4,000-$5,000 from the Christmas concert fans, then I will match the money before we give it to St. Jude’s,” he said.
He told People that he loves giving back through these concerts.
These concerts really check the boxes for me. I like to give back and focus on my art, it’s in my soul. When entire families tune in and send me videos, I see how generous, loving and kind they are, which reinforces my love of humanity.
