Unprecedented times have led us into changing our livelihood but what remains clear is music, which keeps uniting, connecting and spreading messages of hope and encouragement across the world; Pulse samples some of the concerts that ushered us into the month of May.

A moment with met

Historically, the first Monday in the month of May marks the biggest night in the world of fashion, as far as red carpet events are concerned. This year, however, the annual Met Gala was streamed live on YouTube due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The annual themed event whose proceeds traditionally benefit the less fortunate has been a success throughout the years.

To celebrate it, the live-streamed event on Monday saw an address from the Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour as she and others reminisced on the past years.

This year’s theme was ‘About Time: Fashion and Duration’. Celebrities who have previously graced this event include Beyoncé, Rihanna and Blake Lively who have turned heads with their gorgeous outfits, year in year out.
