The heroes at the frontlines of the coronavirus pandemic are the healthcare workers trying to help treat new and ongoing cases everyday.

To help raise support for those brave men and women, music icon Sean “Diddy” Combs held a virtual dance-a-thon on Instagram Live.

Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James and his son Bronny made an appearance.

“He be trying to act too cool for school and everything,” the elder James said with an arm slung over his teenage son’s shoulders.

After a quick exchange of pleasantries, Combs had incredible words of praise for the Lakers star.

“I want to say ‘Bron, I know you’re spending time with the family,” he said. “Thank you very, very much for tuning in. You didn’t have to do that. I love you and respect you for life. God bless you and family boy. Keep on rocking.”

On Saturday, Combs announced “the biggest dance-a-thon- in the world” to raise money for healtcare workers.


On Sunday afternoon, Combs made the incredible announcement that his dance-a-thon had already raised $3 million.


While the current COVID-19 pandemic has been hard for everyone, it has been incredible to see how some stars and celebrities have managed to give back and show their thanks to those who are risking their lives to keep others safe.

The elder James has done his part as well. Last month, he announced that he was providing 1,300 meals for students at the I Promise School in Arkon, Ohio.

Surely, as this pandemic continues, individuals like Combs and the elder James will continue to find ways to help in anyway they can.
