If we cannot go out this coming Easter Sunday, we can still celebrate it at home.

Since churchgoers will only stay at home, the legendary Opera Singer, Andrea Bocelli will perform live in Duomo Cathedral in Milan, Italy on Easter Sunday, April 12.

To continually combat the novel Coronavirus, the cathedral will be empty but everyone is invited to enjoy the performance through livestream on YouTube. In line with that, ‘Bocelli: Music for Hope’ is a concert to honor not only Easter Sunday but also to raise the spirits of people who suffered from the global pandemic.

Especially in Italy where we witness the massive effect of the pandemic crisis and in case you don’t know yet, it is where Bocelli from.

Moreover, iconic religious slated for the set list like ‘Ave Maria’ and ‘Santa Maria’.  The concert itself is in partnership with the city of his home nation, Milan. Additionally, the said livestream concert will take place at 7 pm in Italy.

“I believe in the strength of praying together, I believe in the Christian Easter, a universal symbol of rebirth that everyone – whether they are believers or not – truly needs right now. Thanks to music, streamed live, bringing together millions of clasped hands everywhere in the world, we will hug this wounded earth’s pulsing heart, this wonderful international forge that is reason for Italian pride.” ” Bocelli expressed in a statement.

To tell you, the tenor’s Andrea Bocelli Foundation has started a GoFundMe campaign to eventually support and lend a hand hospitals in purchasing supplies for their medical staff from the virus.

“The generous, courageous, proactive Milan and the whole of Italy will be again, and very soon, a winning model, engine of a renaissance that we all hope for. It will be a joy to witness it, in the Duomo, during the Easter celebration which evokes the mystery of birth and rebirth.” he added.

This time might be different way of celebrating Easter suunday, but let’s always remember that we can pray at home. Let’s pray and hope for the better days! We know that we’ll get through this crisis in time.
