The singer said she understands that most creatives are going through a tough time because they can't make money during these trying times as lockdown regulations don't allow artists to go out and perform.
She said, "To the creative industry of the world, Covid-19 has put everything into a standstill. We can't move, we can't perform, we can't go to theatres, we cant go anywhere. But with that said, music is love, music is king. We may have been separated, but you know what, nothing can divide us. Music is love."
