This rare footage of Jazz Great Louis Armstrong is just a small sampling of a new online exhibit,
that takes you inside the musicians home without having to leave your own.
Its being offered by the Armstrong House Museum in Queens and New York City borough,
which normally charges for entry into the historic landmark.
But because of the COVID-19 lockdown which has forced museums to close.
The exhibit is being offered online instead,free of charge.
In Britain, Londons National Theatre is screening some of its most popular productions online at no charge,
as a theatre itself remains closed due to the pandemic.
By launching this as a premier event,
we want to get as close as we could to that feeling of people seeing a live event.
Then were hopeful that people can link up with friends,family around the country or even around the world,
will agree that theyre going to watch it at the same time.
Music fans can also enjoy popular shows online.
British composer Andrew Lloyd Webber is streaming full-length performances of his musicals on a dedicated YouTube channel.
Orchestra avenues like the Metropolitan Opera recently streamed a live At-Home Gala performance,
with more than 40 leading artists performing from their homes all around the world.

Fitness companies are also reaching people in non-traditional ways.
Athletic clothing retailer Lululemon is offering online yoga classes.
Nike has free online workouts,
and Planet Fitness is streaming live workouts on their Facebook page.
Businesses are doing this for one simple reason,says clinical professor James Schrager.
Promotion, when the whole economy slows down, is taken museum and no one is coming.
Its a fabulous chance for you to get the word out there,
and these clever businesses are realizing at no cost to me if I can get them to my site.
Im delighted to let them try what I have for sale later on.
Hopefully once this is all over,
people will be going back into their theaters and cinemas to get more of it.
I think right now thats what everybody needs, the chance to have a laugh, be entertained,
and hopefully provoke some real conversation.
To date hundreds of thousands of people around the world have accessed these diversions,
as they wait out the pandemic.
As your ready arms, come up.
