Today's Pandemic Playlist is just the boys and girls. No groups, no specialty acts, just the women and the men who step out onto the stage and sing for their supper.

Whatever journey each of these artists takes to get to the mic doesn't matter - all that matters is that they get to the mic... and the audience, because these ten are something to see.
