BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Despite the empty Boston streets from the COVID-19 pandemic, one artist stuck it through and performed anyway.

With mask mandates expired, the arrival of spring, and packed green spaces, Performer C.J. Hutchings told WBZ's Carl Stevens that things have been getting easier for him. But when the pandemic first began, not much music could be heard at the T stops, except for Hutchings that is.

"I think I was the only live performance that people saw, because there were no performances at all. I hustle and make my living selling my paintings, my CD's, and my music," Hutchings said.

At the Green Line stops, Hutchings said that he's been able to get by with the art he's produced.

"I do this for a living. I'm an author, singer, songwriter, and sell my CD's that I record in my studio," Hutchings said.
