Actress Gal Gadot led a star-studded cover of John Lennon's Imagine as celebrities including Natalie Portman and Jamie Dornan attempted to lift spirits amid the coronavirus outbreak.
The viral video was viewed more than two million times on Instagram, Gadot explains she has been in isolation for six days and the global crisis has left her feeling “philosophical."
The 34-year-old added she had been inspired by a viral video from Italy–which is in lockdown after being devastated by the virus–of a man playing Imagine on his trumpet while quarantined neighbors join in from their homes.
Gadot sang the intro to Lennon's classic before a host of celebrities took it in turns to sing portions of the song.
Many were happy to hear their favorite celebrities sing. Others wanted the celebrities to help their communities.
