Andrea Bocelli's Easter concert on Sunday was a gorgeous moment for the world to come together and reflect on the trying times we are all experiencing amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Livestreamed from the 61-year-old singer's YouTube channel, one of the most powerful moments came when Bocelli went outside the Duomo di Milano in Milan, Italy, where his concert took place, to deliver a powerful rendition of "Amazing Grace."

The event's description read, "On Easter Sunday (April 12, 2020), by invitation of the City and of the Duomo cathedral of Milan, Italian global music icon Andrea Bocelli will give a solo performance representing a message of love, healing and hope to Italy and the world."
