July 10, 2020 – Every year Ringo dedicates his birthday to promoting Peace and Love. Because of the pandemic Ringo was not able to do his usual event so instead he hosted an online concert and fundraiser – “RINGO’S BIG BIRTHDAY SHOW”. The broadcast event premiered on his 80th birthday and featured unseen concert and unique performances by Starr, Paul McCartney, Joe Walsh, Ben Harper and Dave Grohl, Sheryl Crow, Gary Clark Jr and Sheila E. The event also was a benefit for four charities: Black Lives Matter Global Network, the David Lynch Foundation, Musicares and WaterAid. Encore presentations of the show can be found on AXS and YouTube until July 13. Starting July 14, an audio version will be available exclusively on SiriusXM followed by an exclusive, one week only, streaming on www.ceek.com. Additionally, a Ringo curated playlist can be heard in over 10,000 Starbucks locations in the US and Canada through July 18.
In addition to the charity broadcast – Starr’s birthday wish to create a wave of Peace and Love actually started in space this year with The International Space Station being the first to wish Ringo a Happy Birthday “From 260 miles above our home planet, NASA Astronauts wish Ringo Starr a happy 80th birthday! Since our orbiting laboratory operates in Greenwich Mean Time, or GMT, it’s officially July 7 – a perfect date to send #PeaceAndLove to everyone across the universe!” https://www.facebook.com/ISS/videos/279210786477293/
The Mars Rover soon followed with the message, “Happy 80th, Ringo Starr! Here’s my view of Earth (and Venus) from the surface of Mars where I’m thinking about your message of peace and love, and how in good times and in tough ones, we all get by with a little help from our friends” https://www.facebook.com/MarsCuriosity/photos/a.133197436730240/2966219443428011
Meanwhile stars here on Earth celebrated by posting tribute performances of Ringo’s music on their socials, many of which can be found on Ringo’s YouTube channel in a Happy 80th Birthday Playlist.
