As you know, concerts and shows are being cancelled left, right and centre at the moment due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. But Jennifer Garner is making sure we keep on smiling, singing and dancing!
The actress is asking her fans to share videos of their dance routines and concerts that have been cancelled because of the coronavirus, on social media with the hashtag #heyjenlookatme.
“This time of year has so many people, from preschoolers to professionals, working their tails off to perform,” she writes in an Insta post. “And now – the games, the meets, the recitals, the productions, big and small – are shut down. Well, the show must go on, people!!!”

To the Elsas and Matildas; to the Willy Lomans and Romeos. Not to mention the flautists, the pianists, the gymnasts, the shot-putter. We want to SEE—show us what you’ve got!! 🌟 #heyjenlookatme (I just now found out one of my favorite Broadway stars @laurabenanti had the same idea. Hi Laura! ♥️🤗 You can tag her, too, at #SunshineSongs)
Jen is urging her fans, both young and old, to “break out your oboes, belt out your torch song, run in place” and she will then “show it to the world.”
“To the Elsas and Matildas; to the Willy Lomans and Romeos. Not to mention the flautists, the pianists, the gymnasts, the shot-putter. We want to SEE – show us what you’ve got!!”
