Andrea Bocelli is making sure everyone’s Easter is music-filled despite the fact that many church-goers across the globe will be unable to attend services in-person due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The Italian opera star will perform a solo concert, Andrea Bocelli: Music for Hope, this Easter Sunday from the Duomo cathedral in Milan, Italy, and it will be live-streamed on his YouTube channel. Since the Duomo in Milan has been closed amid the outbreak, Bocelli, 61, and cathedral organist Emanuele Vianelli will perform songs like “Ave Maria” and “Sancta Maria” to an empty venue.

“On the day in which we celebrate the trust in a life that triumphs, I’m honored and happy to answer ‘Sì’ to the invitation of the City and the Duomo of Milan,” Bocelli said in a statement Tuesday. “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.”
