    Smile live--> live commitments

    The 24-year-old was released from hospital on Monday after doctors confirmed she has scarring of the lungs which can cause emphysema, but it is treatable.
    And yesterday, the singer pledged to honour her live commitments at both Glastonbury and the Mandela concert and has spent an hour-and-a-half in rehearsals since leaving the London clinic.
    Hi! Could someone else tell me what "live" means here? What will the connotation be different if I delete "live" from the context above?

    Thanks in advance!

    live commitment = her commitment (her agreement) to perform live (in person, in front of an audience, rather than recorded)
