Gerard Julien/AFP through Getty Images Andrea Bocelli, the superstar tenor, will live stream an Easter Sunday performance from Milan’s famed Duomo cathedral. Much like practically every other church in the world, the seats will be empty and Bocelli will be accompanied just by organist Emanuele Vianelli. The concert will stream live on Bocelli’s YouTube channel Sunday at 10 a.m. ET.

In a declaration released Tuesday, Bocelli said he hopes that the Easter concert, which will consist primarily of spiritual songs like “Ave Maria,” will supply some convenience to viewers no matter their religion.

Plenty of other artists have announced live streams as places closed down due to the spread of the coronavirus, however Bocelli’s live show from an empty Duomo– which is normally full for Easter mass– will be among the more striking examples of the level to which the pandemic has changed public life.

The stream will not be the Italian tenor’s first effort to assist out during the coronavirus crisis. Italy has actually been hit hard by the pandemic, and Bocelli’s structure has raised more than $140,000 through GoFundMe to assist healthcare facilities buy supplies. He will also be part of Global Citizen’s big ” One World: Together At Home” event on April 18.
