How the music industry coped with Covid-19 and what we're looking forward to in 2021


In this festive edition of the show, our music critics Marjorie Hache and Florence Villeminot take a look back over the highs and lows of 2020. This year, the world was brought to a standstill by the Covid-19 pandemic, which inevitably impacted the music industry as whole. How have artists coped with the various lockdowns and restrictions? What were the big hits of the year and our favourite interviews? And what are we looking forward to in 2021?

Mike Florio and Charean Williams react to the Cleveland Browns holding practice Friday after a COVID-19 spread, and whether this could be problematic come Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
With each day, the COVID-19 pandemic is getting worse in the United States.

More than 15-million people have been infected with more than 285,000 deaths, and health experts warn January could be even worse. California's governor issued a stay-at-home order for 33-million residents, in an effort to ease the burden on the state's hospital system. Restaurants can no longer serve inside or outdoors, and hair salons and playgrounds will remain closed until January. New York's governor also warned if the hospitalization rates don't soon improve, indoor dining will be shut down again. In a sign of hope, US President-elect Joe Biden pledged 100-million vaccines in his first 100-days in office.

In our show "#Correspondence", we explore how the world is coping with the twists and turns of #2020, amid the consequences of Covid-19 and beyond. FRANCE 24 brings you a selection of original #reports from our correspondents and teams around the globe.
Whilst 100,000 deaths is a moment to mark and reflect, the true impact of the pandemic runs far deeper.
