Celine Dion performs live at Barclaycard Presents British Summer Time Hyde Park at Hyde Park on July 5, 2019 in London, England. 

Pianist Alberto Gestoso and saxophonist Alexander Lebron Torrent performed a heartfelt rendition of Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On" on their balconies amid coronavirus lockdown in Barcelona, Spain.

"Music against the virus," read the caption on the posted by Gestoso's partner Ramón Santana.

In the video, which has now gone viral, Gestoso starts playing the Oscar-winning Titanic theme song on his piano and soon after, Lebron Torrent accompanies him with the saxophone as quarantined neighbors come out of their apartments to witness the beautiful moment.

Like other countries in Europe, Spain is now under strict lockdown with nearly 8,000 people infected with COVID-19 and about 300 dead.

Watch the special performance below.
