Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry is making the most of his time during the suspended NBA season. The two-time league MVP and three-time NBA champion, along with his wife Ayesha, hosted numerous Christian music artists on Instagram Live Thursday night.

The list of artists included big names like David Crowder, Toby Mac, Chris Tomlin, JohnnySwim, Kari Jobe and Cody Carnes. Each of the artists performed a short concert for Curry, Ayesha, their children Riley, Ryan and Canon, and the rest of the Instagram Live viewers.
Steph and Ayesha Curry dubbed the whole event “Home + Hallelujah” to help uplift the spirits of many who are struggling to cope with the coronavirus pandemic.
Tonight we will be singing about THE hope with @stephencurry30 and a bunch of gifted friends. It’s something we could all use right now. Much love. My baby girl (Marlee) gonna be on the harmonies!!! It’s my honor to be a part. (7pm central on https://t.co/WD3rax9Ezq) pic.twitter.com/qzSCQhNT9J

Had such a special time tonight online with @stephencurry30 family as we worshipped Jesus with other friends. It’s so powerful that in a season of what everyone is facing in our nation and around the world, that we are able to lean in and be a support to each other even through the internet. Cody and I were grateful to be apart and sing the blessing over hearts tonight!
Earlier this week, Curry also made a cameo appearance on an hour-long Instagram Live video with Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and Christian artist Tauren Wells to discuss faith amid the pandemic.
“Being able to have a perspective that’s refreshed in terms of the people in our lives that need prayer, that need that phone call, that text. To be honest, there is no more excuse of ‘Oh, I’m busy,'” he said on the broadcast. “It’s about being truly selfless in a way that Jesus would have us, and to be able to be that village for whoever needs us.”
Curry spent much of the 2019-2020 season dealing with a broken left hand, which occurred in the fourth game of the season. He made his much-anticipated return for only one game before the season was suspended on March 11.
