The ongoing coronavirus pandemic has led to a worldwide feeling of anxiety, but Dolly Parton is here to soothe our minds during this difficult time.

In an Instagram video uploaded on Friday (March 27), the songstress is standing by her staircase at home as she lightheartedly sings, "Hello it’s Dolly climbing the stairway to heaven because this virus has scared the H-E-double L out of us."

"I’m not making light of the situation," she clarifies, before adding, "Well, maybe I am because it’s the light I believe that’s going to dissolve the situation. I think God is in this, I really do. I think he’s holding us to the light so we can see ourselves and see each other through the eyes of love."

"I think when this passes, we’re all going to be better people," she concluded, before encouraging her fans, "Just keep the faith, don’t be too scared, we’re gonna be alright, God is with us."
