Oscar-winning Billie Eilish and her brother Finneas O’Connell did not perform at the concert but recorded a video message with words of support for the Ukrainians.
“We want to convey our love and support to all the participants of the concert, and most importantly. To show solidarity with the millions of people who had to leave their homes and everything, “said the singer.
As part of the concert, they also showed a number recorded together with Ukrainian musician Ilya Bondarenko. The violinist had to wait for four breaks between bombings to record his part in a bomb shelter.
