According to a press release, a special donate function will appear on-screen during the livestream so fans can donate in real-time. The money raised will go towards the United Nations Foundation’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organization. Google will also match all donations up to $5 million, with proceeds going to the UN Foundation.

Malone has been a longtime fan of Nirvana. He had previously covered the grunge icons’ song, “All Apologies,” at a 2017 gig in Boston. The rapper also has several Nirvana-inspired tattoos, including a portrait of Kurt Cobain inked on his knuckles.

Earlier this month, Malone was sued by a Canadian songwriter named Tyler Armes, who claimed he did not receive proper songwriting credit on the rapper’s 2019 chart-topper, “Circles.” Malone then countersued Armes, saying that the songwriter’s allegations were “utterly baseless.”
