Global Superstar Khalid Set to Perform his Single “New Normal” at Virgin Galactic’s Spaceflight launch
The Livestream will be available to watch on Virgin Galactic.com and will be simulcast on the Virgin Galactic Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook channels. It is expected to begin at 7:00 am MDT / 9:00 am EDT on the day of the flight.
Khalid declares: “I am so excited and honored to be performing at this historic event. It’s always been a dream of mine to go to space and It’s incredible that Virgin Galactic is working to make space accessible for people to explore in the very near future. My new song “New Normal” is all about these new journeys we are taking after experiencing so much change during the pandemic. The future is now, everything is changing and this new normal we are all living in is proof that we can find our way through hard times. It’s so cool to know that Sir Richard Branson and all of the mission specialists will be listening to it on their journey. I can’t wait to perform for all of them upon their return to earth!”
The Chief Executive Officer of Virgin Galactic, Michael Colglazier, states: “The Pilots and Crew of Unity 22 are opening the door for a new generation to be inspired by Space. Khalid is a tremendously talented, global artist and influencer who brings a shared passion for space and for breaking barriers. We’re thrilled to have him perform during Virgin Galactic’s livestream to commemorate this step forward in making human space travel a new normal for the next generation and beyond.”
Unity 22 will also be the first to carry a full crew of two pilots and four mission specialists in the cabin, including the Company’s founder, Sir Richard Branson, who will be testing the private astronaut experience
