As part of the Save Our Stages Festival, aimed at aiding thousands of music venues hard hit by COVID-19 lockdowns, Demi Lovato and Marshmello came together to perform their “OK Not to Be OK.” collaboration.
Taking the stage for their emotional single at Los Angeles’ legendary Troubadour nightclub, the two superstars stayed mostly socially-distant, with Lovato dealing her signature vocals as the masked producer/artist stepped away from the DJ decks to accompany her on guitar. The lyrics pair well with the current state of the world and the cause for which they were being sung.
The Troubadour is just one of countless venues throughout North America threatened with closure due to COVID-19. The West Hollywood club is famous for incubating the Los Angeles music scene of the ’60s and ’70s, with acts such as Linda Ronstadt, Jackson Brown, Eagles, Elton John, Joni Mitchell and more all playing the stage early in their careers.
