I have performed two live streamed concerts so far because my scheduled performances were cancelled. Both were free and open to the public. I enjoy performing in front of an audience because of the feeling of connection and shared energy, but it has been interesting to realize that just the act of playing music and singing feels good, too, even in front of a camera in an empty room. I plan to do more concerts and I have some ideas for making them as interactive as possible, like using meeting software so that I will hear the audience instead of them just hearing me. I also want to do other livestream videos highlighting visual arts as well.
