Zac Brown Band will be featured on Verizon’s weekly ‘Pay it Forward Live’ concert series

The Zac Brown Band will be featured on Verizon’s weekly “Pay it Forward Live” series, a streaming event in support of small businesses affected by COVID-19.

The Atlanta group will perform live at 8 p.m. May 7 on numerous platforms (Twitter @Verizon, Yahoo, Verizon’s Facebook and YouTube pages, Fios channel 501 and 604, Yahoo Finance on Samsung TV Plus on channel 1017, The Roku Channel, AXS TV and Fox Now, while the audio is available via iHeart and SiriusXM).

“It’s so important we all stay home and flatten the curve, but small businesses have been impacted as a result. It’s up to us to work together and support one another and I’m honored to do my part in helping those who are hurting right now,” Brown said in a statement.

The weekly performances remain on Verizon’s platforms for a week, so Janelle Monae fans can still catch the sometimes-Atlantan, who played the April 30 edition (warning, her emotional version of “Smile” will hit you in the heart).

During “Pay it Forward Live,” viewers are encouraged to support local businesses by shopping online, buying gift cards or ordering a meal. Verizon will donate $10, up to $2.5 million, to support small businesses for each use of the hashtag #PayItForwardLIVE.
