David Guetta raises $700,000 for COVID-19 relief by DJing from Miami rooftop
On April 18, superstar DJ David Guetta took to a Miami rooftop to perform a DJ set for a good cause: COVID-19 relief.
With only a few spectators on the pool deck with him (likely staff and team members), Guetta opened with his 2011 smash hit “Titanium” and took Miami residents and online viewers through nearly two hours of music while encouraging them to support relief efforts for the pandemic worldwide.
“For every dollar that you guys are gonna give at davidguetta.com, I will match the dollar,” he announced at the beginning of his set. The news was met with excited whoops that are audible from the surrounding balconies, as fans rallied to support Guetta’s efforts.
A press release noted that an estimated 8,000 Miami residents watched from their balconies, and an additional 12 million streamed the performance live online.
At the end of the set, fans and Guetta had raised $700,000, which will be donated to the World Health Organization, Feeding South Florida, Feeding America, and La Fondation des Hôpitaux de Paris – Hôpitaux de France.
