Be Part of History with YouTube’s “Life in a Day”

YouTube may have paved the way for the asinine antics we now see on TikTok, but it's not without its noble causes, either.

In 2010, 80,000 video clips from almost 200 countries were compiled for the 90-minute film Life in a Day, which has over 16 million views in the decade since its debut.

And now, ten years later, it's time to compile another round of clips for an updated version of Life in a Day. This will be especially noteworthy, given the year 2020 has been so far.

You can be part of history in this year's edition. Follow this link, watch the video below and get ready to capture your own Life in a Day this Saturday.

Prince Concert on YouTube for Charity

So tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1985. Not the correct lyrics but it is the current situation.

Starting tonight at 7 and continuing over three days, YouTube is streaming a classic concert of Prince and the Revolution. It was recorded March 30th, 1985, in Syracuse, New York.

This show is significant in that was the first concert footage Prince ever released, and is now being streamed digitally for the first time. Tonight's event opens with a Q&A session with drummer Bobby Z.

It's free to watch, but if you choose to donate, money raised goes to the World Health Organization’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund. Google is then matching donations up to $5 million.
