If you missed Wednesday’s session, fear not, it seems the fun will continue! Allen announced she will be hosting a kid’s class early Saturday morning.
The “Grey’s Anatomy” star, who runs the Debbie Allen Dance Company, is on the growing list of celebrities utilizing their platforms, talents, and coins to help affected fans. John Legend performed an intimate concert via Instagram, and Erykah Badu is planning a benefit concert as well.
In addition to entertainment and charity, some celebrities are working to spread knowledge and information. Idris Elba released a PSA video after he tested positive for COVID-19.
