Happy Lunar New Year! The holiday officially ushers in the year of the ox starting Friday (Feb. 12), and artists from Taylor Swift to Rina Sawayama are wishing fans a safe celebration.

Swift, who’s on the heels of her own celebration after re-recording her 2008 romantic classic “Love Story,” shared a video message on her Instagram Story. “Hey guys. I just wanted to say happy Chinese New Year. I hope everyone is staying safe and happy, and I’m wishing you all the best,” she said.

Sawayama used her platform to shine a light on the growing number of hate crimes committed against Asian-American communities, especially those targeting elderly individuals, amid the COVID-19 pandemic. She shared a GoFundMe page that plans to raise $150,000 for Bay Area, LA and NY organizations committed to empowering the community in various ways.
