The video uses U2's 'Where The Streets Have No Name'.
Partnering with some of Ireland's biggest musicians, former Hot Press cover star Niall Horan released a video on RTÉ 2fm's breakfast show with Doireann and Eoghan, urging fans to support the #UniteByStayingApart initiative, and help nurses and front line workers by staying inside during the Coronavirus lockdown.
Participating in the video are Dermot Kennedy, Alfie and Harry Hudson Taylor, The Edge, Hozier, Gavin James, Damien Dempsey and Andrea Corr, among many more Irish stars.
Speaking on 2fm breakfast, Horan said: “Why don’t I try and go through my contacts of Irish musicians… Myself and Hozier wrote up the little speech in from the video and we chatted back and forth about it and then I went around to all the different Irish singers and musicians and kind of asked them would they film themselves, doing this video, we will pile it together and put the “Where The Streets Have No Name” by U2 in the background and try and keep people indoors. So, I have done that, it has taken me quite a while and it’s quite hard to commandeer 20 odd singers and pile them into a video but we did it and yeah the video has turned out really good.”
