Adam Lambert Performs ‘Mad World’ for Global Pride 2020

Adam Lambert delivered a smooth, socially distanced cover of “Mad World” and a heartfelt speech during the Global Pride 2020 virtual event.

“I wanted to wish everybody a Happy World Pride,” he said to the camera before his performance during Saturday’s (June 27) live stream. “It’s amazing to be a part of the LGTBQ+ community. I’m very proud of my brothers and sisters. We are amazing. The progress we’ve made over the past 10 years since I’ve been in the public eye has been incredibly inspiring.”

“That’s not to say there’s not a lot of work to be done,” he continued. “We all know this. History never is a straight line of progress. There are setbacks, there’s side to side.”

Lambert went on to say: “In light of the recent Black Lives Matter protests that have been going on all over the world, I think it’s our responsibility as a community to use our empathy, to give a little extra love and support to our members of our community that are people of color. So let’s take this time during world Pride to get as connected as we can, to reach out, make new friends, educate yourself, listen, get involved. This is a really, really important time to band together so that we are stronger as a unit. Let’s make a big, proud rainbow of all the different colors as much as we can this summer and fight back, and fight proud.”

Global Pride, a 24-hour live stream hosted by Todrick Hall, brought solidarity and celebratory vibes to the LGBTQ+ community while in-person Pride Month events were canceled amid the coronavirus pandemic.

SZA Brings a Breezy ‘Normal Girl’ to Virtual Roots Picnic 2020: Watch

SZA took “Normal Girl” out to nature for this year’s Roots Picnic.

The singer delivered a fresh, soothing vocal performance of the CTRL track outdoors for Saturday night’s (June 27) event.

Surrounded by trees and accompanied by just a guitarist, SZA crooned about what it might be like to be the “type of girl you wanna take home to mama” and the “type of girl my daddy, he’d be proud of.”

SZA was part of a packed lineup for the virtual rendition of the Roots Picnic, which kicked off with Michelle Obama urging viewers to take a minute and vote in this year’s elections. The Roots, H.E.R., Roddy Ricch and Kirk Franklin were among the many other performers.

Check out a clip of SZA’s performance below.
