How This Live Acoustic Singer Used FB to Perform, Make Money in Quarantine

Their online gig offers two types of services.

Artists are some of the hardest hit workers by the pandemic, especially as live shows and events are put on hold in the meantime. Many have taken to starting small businesses to cope, and one example is Jayson Plaza, a performer in Boracay. Plaza is an acoustic singer who made a living entertaining tourists visiting the island. He used to earn P80,000 to 90,000 a month, but when the coronavirus hit our country, he lost his source of livelihood. Going back to his hometown without savings made him feel anxious and depressed, so he started thinking of ways to make ends meet in the new normal. 

Eventually, he decided to create a Facebook page with his friend where they could perform live and still be able to earn money. They named it 19 South Online Bar.

Their online busting offers two types of services, a live stream where he would perform live, and the on-demand harana which allows everyone to request songs for their loved ones. His earnings may not be as huge as before, but with money he’s collecting from the song requests, Plaza is able to sustain his family’s needs.
