One good deed deserves another.

Such was certainly the case for singer Liv Harland, who's generosity was rewarded after she stopped mid-song while busking to help a homeless man.

The touching encounter, which took place in the city centre of Manchester, England was recorded and added to Harland's TikTok page, @livharlandmusic.

Is this good karma or what??..😱 #fypシ #livharland #busker #homelessman #kind #karma #singer

With the caption reading "Is this good Karma or what?", the video began with Harland singing while a text overlay brought the viewer's attention to something happening right next to Harland.

"So I was singing and if you look to the left of me, I saw a man getting chicken nuggets out of the bin!!!"

Unable to ignore the man was likely about to eat food he had just plucked from the garbage, Harland stopped singing and approached the man, and once more an overlay described what happened next.

"I said to him, if I gave him money to get fresh ones, would he..."

Harland then headed back to her donation bin, taking out some cash to give to the man.

Viewers could just make out Harland sharply speaking to the homeless man saying "Promise me you'll get fresh ones", which was also written in the overlay.

The grateful man could be seen clearly acknowledging his gratitude to Harland, with "Thank you lovely" appearing in the overlay on screen.

The video continued with Harland seamlessly returning to her song, when a young man appeared, dropping cash in Harland's donation bin.

Harland revealed in the overlay the amount the young man donated was not at all insubstantial:

"A kind man gave me double what I gave the man."
"Good Karma I say!!"

The heartwarming video has since received over 15 million views, and 3 million likes.

Its popularity prompted Harland to subsequently post the livestream footage of the sweet and selfless encounter to her TikTok page, giving viewers a slightly more up close and personal account.

Included among those touched by her giving nature, was Harland's mother.

Some eagle eyed viewers of the video noticed the generous benefactor at the video's end could also be seen watching Harland at the beginning of the video.

Further evidence Harland's kindness did not go unnoticed, and she was rewarded for paying it forward.

Though there was one comment which likely summed up this video, and Harland's actions, to a tee.
