Andrea Bocelli, one of the world’s most famous tenors, has sung in Milan’s Duomo Cathedral, without an audience. His emotional show was staged as a way of sending hope to the world during the coronavirus pandemic.

The Italian singer’s concert started at 1 pm in the deserted cathedral and was streamed on YouTube.

The 61-year-old Italian tenor captivated listeners around the globe after he was granted exclusive access to perform from the otherwise locked down building.

Accompanied by organist Emanuele Vianelli, Bocelli sang at the historic cathedral of Milan for an audience of none because the Duomo, like most public places, are closed because of the spreading coronavirus.
