New Zealand singer Brooke Fraser has announced that she will be live-streaming a benefit concert to help Kiwis musicians who are struggling during the pandemic.

Kiwi musicians' work has halted as the country continues to be in lockdown in a bid to stamp out Covid-19.

This has prompted the popular singer, also known as Brooke Ligertwood, to raise money with Music Helps Live, to help bring relief to musicians impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.

"I'm going to be playing a wee set of Brooke Fraser songs [yup, you heard right] next week on my Instagram live to benefit Music Helps Live," she announced on Instagram.

"Music Helps Live has been established to bring crisis relief funds to the thousands of Kiwis in the New Zealand music industry facing hardship due to the closures and cancellations resulting from the current Covid-19 pandemic (these are my people!). 100% of support raised will go directly to people in need."

Fraser said she will be playing on Tuesday, April 21 at 3pm and will be posting more information about the gig before it happens.

She urged fans to request their favourite songs by commenting on her post.
