The band was also there for the fundraiser back in 2015 where they performed Game of Thrones: The Musical alongside the cast of the HBO fantasy drama series. That video has amassed more than 35 million YouTube views to date and you can watch it below.
Ole Obermann, global head of music at TikTok said, “This is both an exciting opportunity for our global audience to hear and watch great music, as well as raise money for a charity that does such good work for children both in the United States and around the world.”
