BECAUSE NORMALLY WE MIGHT BE ABLE TO GO TO A VENUE LIKE THE BLUEBIRD THEATER BEHIND ME TO SEE LOCAL TALENT, BUT NOW THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A BETTER TIME TO CATCH THAT TALENT VIRTUALLY AND THIS NEW EFFORT WILL HELP THEM ENGAGE WITH THEIR AUDIENCE WHILE ALSO TRYING TO MAKE AN INCOME IN LIGHT OF THE CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK KAYLA IS A SINGER/SONGWRITER WHO HAS LIVED IN DENVER ALL HER LIFE SHE'S A FULL-TIME MUSICIAN WHO LIKELY WON'T SEE ANY WORK UNTIL AT LEAST THE FALL IT WAS AN ABRUPT CHANGE AND HAD TO MAKE A VERY FAST ADJUSTMENT

Reporter: THE CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK HAS AFFECTED SO MANY OTHER LOCAL ARTISTS JUST LIKE HER WE MAY NOT HAVE REGULAR JOBS, BUT WE HAVE REGULAR BILLS Reporter: SO SHE'S JOINING AN EFFORT TO SUPPORT OTHER CREATIVE ARTISTS IN COLORADO EVERYONE WHO'S AN ARTIST THAT'S STUCK AT HOME FIGURES THEY MIGHT AS WELL STREAM TO THE INTERNET Reporter: ENTERTAINERS AT ALL LEVELS ARE LIVESTREAMING TO ENTERTAIN THEIR AUDIENCE
