Gavin James raises €3,000 for charity ahead of tonight's streamed gig

A massive fair play to him.

Gavin James has already raised €3,000 for charity ahead of his live stream gig planned for this evening.

The singer will take to Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram tonight for a live concert he has so aptly dubbed 'Gavin James - Live from Gav's Gaff.'

The gig is, of course, free, but Gavin has been encouraging the public to donate what they can to elderly charity, Alone.

So far he has already raised over €3,000.

"I'm doing a live stream from me gaff at 8 o'clock it's gonna be called 'Gavin's gaff gig,'" he told the Ray D'Arcy Show.

"We'll be apart but we'll all be there together."

The gig, which takes place at 8pm this evening, will see Gavin play a host of his hits including 'Always,' 'For You,' and 'Glow.'

But the Dublin singer hasn't just been doing his bit for the elderly - he's also been entertaining his neighbours while people across the country do their utmost to social distance during the coronavirus outbreak.

He recently shared a video of himself belting out the chorus of Doris Day's 'Fly Me To The Moon' while a group of unknown voices mercilessly tell him "fuck off."

Harsh, yet fair.
